Printer not working says, printhead missing, not detected or improper install? I tried to fix?

HP Officejet Pro 8600 Premium Printer
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I have a HP Officejet Pro 8600 Premium Printer, Fax, Scan, Copy Web machine, the printer will now not print. The error message says  "Printhead missing, not detected or improper install"? I tried to fix by removing and replacing each of the ink cartridges and then pulling out the entire ink cartridge holder and putting it back in place but I am still getting the same error messages even after shutting off and restarting the computer?

I even checked for and found no paper jams?  

Please advise what else I can do to get the printer up and running? I need it for my home business! 

Thank you, BigD63
