@EvelynFF, Welcome to HP Support Community!

 

I see that the printer is in an error state and let us try to isolate and resolve the issue-

 

Remove the ink cartridges and reset the printer-

  1. Remove the ink cartridges from the printer.

  2. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the printer.

  3. Unplug the power cord from the power source.

  4. Wait at least 60 seconds.

  5. Reconnect the power cord to a wall outlet and to the printer.

    NOTE: 

    HP recommends plugging the printer directly into a wall outlet.

  6. Turn the printer on.

  7. Reinsert the ink cartridges, and then close the ink cartridge access door.

  8. If you receive a prompt to print a calibration or alignment page, do so.

If you still have issues, follow the steps from the document  Error Indicates Faulty Printhead.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
