Hi @Natalie-Marie

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community. 

 

Try these steps to reset the printer - 

 

1) Take out the cartridges. 
2) Unplug the power cord from the printer & wall. 
3) Wait for 30 seconds.  
4) Plug the power cord back into the printer and wall, ensure the printer is plugged into the wall & not to a surge protector. 
5) Insert the cartridges back into the printer.

 

If the issue still persists, try cleaning the ink cartridges. Refer to step# 3, 4 and 5 from this document
