Sorry to hear about the problem you are experiencing.
If you put the old cartridges back into the printer, does it give the same issue?
Please let me know

I want to remove residue power as the cause of this.
Can you remove the power cable and wait 10 minutes.
Then plug the power cable in, and tell me if it still gives the same message please.

Then the print head has failed sorry Sandra and will need to be replaced.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the printer to have this replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the repair will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
