Welcome to the HP support community.

 

Did you make a copy and check if that prints fine?

Meanwhile:-

Make sure that the cartridges are properly vented and seated correctly

  1. Press the Power button to turn on the printer, if it is not already turned on.

  2. Open the ink cartridge access door. The carriage moves to the access area.

  3. Press the tab on the front of the ink cartridge inward to release it, and then pull up on the ink cartridge to remove it from the slot.

  4. Examine the vent area on each ink cartridge, above the HP logo on the top of the ink cartridge.

  5. If the ink cartridge still has the orange pull-tab attached, pull to remove it.

  6. If the vent is clogged, use a straight pin to gently remove excess adhesive from the vent.

  7. Slide the ink cartridge into its slot, and then press down on the ink cartridge until it snaps into place.

    NOTE: 

    Make sure that each ink cartridge is installed in the correct slot. Match the shape of the icon and the color of the ink cartridge with the slot that has the same shaped icon and color.

  8. Repeat these steps to inspect the vents on each of the ink cartridges.

  9. Make sure that each ink cartridge is firmly in place in its slot. Run your finger along the top of the ink cartridges to feel for any that are protruding, and if any are, press down firmly until each ink cartridge snaps into place.

  10. Close the ink cartridge access door.

  11. Try the print job again.
