Thank you for confirming. Typically it will give you a specific error code number.There are a few possible causes of this issue, including a bad cartridge, internal debris/contamination, or a hardware failure (bad printhead, bad logic board, faulty sensor, etc). What we can try are some cleaning and reset steps.First remove all of the ink cartridges, then clean the metal electrical contacts on the back, as well as where they mate up inside the printer, using qtips and rubbing alcohol. Dry well, then reseat the cartridges.Then reset the machine:unplug power at the wall outletwait 5 minutespress and hold the power/on button for 60+ secondskeep holding while plugging back in, and for another 60 seconds after, then release Let me know the results, and I'll advise further if needed.Nathan

How long have you had the printer?

last april
Expert:  Nathan replied 2 years ago.

If you mean april of 14, you'd be past the warranty and HP won't help.

If april 2015, then you would be covered, and can call HP to file a replacement claim under warranty.
