The cartridges should all have ink (at least a bit) and remain installed in the printer.  Make sure the printer is turned off from its own power switch, and then wait for all internal movements to stop before removing the power.  Store the printer in a cool place, not subject to extreme temperature swings if possible.

 

When starting the printe rup after six months you may have to run through a few cleaning cycles as described in the post here.  If the above does not resolve the problem the post here may help to recover good printing quality after an extended storage.
