I see from the post that you are having issues installing the software for your HP OfficeJet printer. Don't worry I'll be really glad to help you with this,
Let's try a clean install and try. Follow the steps below:
· First, unplug the USB cable from the printer if present.
· Go to Control panel – Programs and feature – Select all the HP Officejet printer entries and uninstall them.
· Now go to Control panel – Devices and printer – Select all the printer entries and remove the device.
· Restart your computer.
· Click the bottom-left Start button on desktop, type device manager in the search box and tap Device Manager on the menu.
· Once in device manager, click on the view tab in the top & choose “Show hidden devices”.
· Then from the device manager list, check the entries under “Printer” – If there are any entries, please right click and choose “uninstall” – In the confirm device un-install pop-up, make sure you select the box which says “Delete the driver software for this device".
· Also, check the entries under "printer queue" and "imaging devices" and repeat the same exercise. Delete any printer entry or any entry which says “Unknown device”.
· Once done, close device-manger. Then press the "windows key" + "r" to get the "Run" window open - Type "printui.exe /s" and press enter.
· Under print server properties, go to drivers - remove any entry there as well.
· Again, go to run window, type – “c:/programdata” – Go to Hewlett Packard folder, remove any printer related folders & files.
· Once done you can try cleaning out your temporary files and cached files. You can try using automated applications like some cleaner software's that you can download from the internet.
· Now restart your computer again.
· Open the Run window again, type “services.msc” and press ok to get services window.
· Scroll down to “Remote Procedure Call (RPC)” – right-click and go to properties. Make sure the service is started and startup type is “Automatic”.
· Now scroll up and go to “Function Discovery Provider Host” – right-click and select properties – Change the startup type to “manual” and start the service.
· Repeat the same exercise on “Function Discovery Resource Publication” as well.
· Click on https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-officejet-6500a-e-all-in-one-printer-series-e710... and install the software.
· Connect the USB cable if prompted and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.
If you are still facing the issues to remove the driver, then try using a 3rd party software removal applications like "Revo uninstaller" or "Wise" to completely remove the programs.
I hope this should do the tfick. Let me know how it goes for further assistance.

Thank you for replying,
I appreciate your time and efforts,
As I understand you have followed the steps suggested and still seems to have an issue with the printer cartridge. Don't worry as I have a few steps which should help you resolve your issue.
I would suggest you follow the steps suggested in the support document for cleaning the ink cartridges, using this link.
Next thing, I would suggest here if the issue persists is to remove all the cartridges and then perform a Hard reset on the printer. Now insert one cartridge at a time and check which cartridge gives an error, so that you can go ahead and replace the faulty cartridge.
I hope this information helps. Let me know if you need any further assistance. I'll be more than happy to help.
