Printer failure: printer cycles then beeps 5 times

HP Officejet 6700 Premium
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

HP Officejet 6700 Premium keeps returning "printer failure" it appears to be the yellow non-hp cartridge as the other 3 non-hp are ok.

Replaced the yellow cartridge and the printer worked a few times. Now when I press the on button it shows the ink cartridges then the printer starts to cycle with the message that this might take several minutes, then returns printer failure.

Now the printer cycles then starts beeping after a minute or so, it beeps 5 times x five, then 5 longer beeps x 2 then returns printer failure.

I tried all the suggestions like disconnecting the power cord from the printer and wall, cleaning the printer contact with water, but nothing works.

Is there a fix or reset for this issue, or is the printer finished.
