@Berniceann, Welcome to the HP Support Community! I’m here to help.


I understand you are not able to print due to this error. 


Make sure the ink cartridges are properly inserted in the printer, you may refer to - Replace HP inkjet printer cartridges


Kindly perform the steps mentioned in this document - Ink cartridge error

Use HP ink cartridges


Make sure the printhead is seated correctly - Printhead errors


If the issue persists, please reach out to HP Support in your region regarding the service options if the printhead is under warranty.

You may create a case on the website to obtain a case number if required. Kindly watch this video to know how.


If the printer is out of warranty, I suggest you upgrade the printer. You may visit Hp Store to check the available printers.


Keep me posted for any other assistance.
