My printer is: HP Photosmart C7280 All-In-One. Won't print with all the colors.

The printer readout says:  Ink system failure.  The computer says: Ink delivery failure.  It also says: Device needs attention.  I have clicked on clean ink heads but nothing happens.  It prints only in green and yellow and black.  Anyone know how to fix this?   Thanks 3ola9

Perform a semi full reset on the printer by pulling out the power chord from the wall outlet. wait for 20 secs. Hold and press # and 6 and plug the power chord back. If the error still persists then take out the cartridges, clean the electric contacts with a lint free cloth and try printing. If the error still persist call HP customer care!
