@Sha6, Welcome to HP Support Community!


Since the printer was not in use for a while, the ink cartridges would have dried up or it could also be an issue with the printer ink system. Follow the steps below to isolate and resolve the issue-


Update the printer firmware

Download available firmware updates from the HP website

With the printer on and connected to the computer, go to HP Customer Support - Software and Driver Downloads, and then identify your printer. Look for and install any available firmware updates. Refer to the document HP Printers - Updating or Upgrading Printer Firmware


Perform the steps from the document  Printer Prints a Blank Page or Does Not Print Black or Color Ink.


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
