Setting up printer without cartridges

Hp Deskjet 3052A
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

My Deskjet 3052A has not been able to read ink cartridges for a while now. I was able to use the scanner until just recently when I changed my wifi password. I was able to use the scanner before I changed the password because everything worked on the printer at the time I set the password. Now the printer screen says "Both cartridges missing or not detected".Is there any way to setup this printer without the ink cartridges installed? because it wont read them anyway. Or is there anyway to input a different wifi password so I can use the scanner on my network?

 

 

Thanks

Maybe try to get the printer to read the cartridges.Remove the cartridges and clean the contacts on the cartridge and also the contacts on the inside of the machine.Refit the cartridges and see if the printer reads the cartridges.I don't think the setup of the scanner will work if the printer is in a error state.Not sure but cleaning the cartridges might work.
