Hi Is anyone there ?
Open the cover and remove all the installed cartridges if installed.

ok done
There will be a latch to release the print head.Lift the latch handle on the carriage.

Grasp the sides of the printhead, and then lift the printhead and pull it toward you to remove it.
Handle the printhead carefully to avoid ink stains. Avoid touching the underside of the printhead.
once its removed try to clean the print head under a warm running tap water till all the ink is removed.use a cotton dipped with alcohol and try to clean the copper/golden contact points on the print head as well as the print head carriage where it sits make sure the contacts are good dry and clean.
install the print head back and close the tray and then let me know if you get the error insert ink cartridges.
Insert the new cartridges after removing the packaging plastics Please make sure there are no packaging tapes on the cartridges. Try to run print head cleaning one time and hen try to print and let me know how it goes.
