Hi Jodyr16,


Sorry for the frustrating problem. You might try some of the steps from this document. Since you've tried reseating the cartridges already, you could probably skip down a bit.


I would try Step 4 first (to reset the printer) and then, if that doesn't work, you could try cleaning the contacts (Step 3).

Best of luck,
