@Flouflou

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.

 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, however, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details:
In general, your printheads are likely clogged and need to be cleaned or replaced.  If your printheads are built into the cartridge then your best bet is to replace the cartridge.  Most people don't have the patience to properly clean a printhead once it has entered this kind of state.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
