Problem with ink system

HP Recommended
Office jet Pro 8620
macOS 10.15 Catalina



I keep getting the ‘problem with ink system’ error. There seems to be no issues with the cartridges. The error says to inspect, reinstall them, and turn off the printer. When I do all the above and then try to turn off the printer, i get the following error: printer initialization and calibration in progress. “Do not turn printer off or disconnect power during the process” 


I have already manually disconnected power over night, still the same issue. Thanks

@Jt0037, Welcome to HP Support Community!


If you have already performed the steps from the document Resolving 'Ink System Failure', 'System Supply Problem' Errors and the issue persists, it could be a hardware failure.


Please reach out to HP Support in your region regarding the service options for your printer.


Hope this helps!
