HP Officejet 6500 Printer problems

My printer is giving me the error message "Ink System Failure" .  I have powered it of and on as suggested but still not able to print.  I have a full black ink cartridge but my color cartridges are empty.  Could that be the problem? 


Please advise - thank you.

It may be the porblem of the empty color cartridge. Did you try changing the color cartridge.
