Remove and reinstall ink

@JadeMountain9, Welcome to the HP Support Community!


The error indicates an issue with the Tri-color ink cartridge. Try printing/copying in single-cartridge mode using only black ink and check if that works.


Let us try these steps to resolve this issue:


Make sure that the cartridges are compatible


Reset the printer

  1. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.

  2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.

  3. Wait at least 15 seconds.

  4. Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.

  5. Reconnect the power cord to the printer.

  6. Turn the printer on.
