Hi,
There are a few steps to follow to check the Printer.

Step one: Turn the All-in-One off and on again

  1. Press the On button to turn the product off.
  2. Press the On button again to turn the product on.
If the error message is not resolved, continue to the next step. Step two: Clear any paper jam Follow these instructions to clear a paper jam. CAUTION: All paper jams must be removed from the back of the product through the rear access door. Pulling the paper from the front of the product rotates the paper feed roller in the wrong direction and can damage the product.
  1. Turn off the product and unplug the power cord.
  2. Turn the product around to access the back of the product.
  3. Open the rear access door:
    1. Locate the tab on the left side of the door and press it toward the right. The door will shift slightly to the right.
    2. As the door shifts to the right, pull the door out slightly to release.
    3. When the door is released, gently remove the door by sliding the door out and to the left.
    1. From the rear access opening, gently pull the jammed paper out of the rollers.
    NOTE: If the paper tears when you are removing it from the rollers, check the rollers and wheels for torn pieces of paper that might be remaining inside the product. If all the pieces of paper are not removed from the product, more paper jams are likely to occur.
    1. Replace the rear access door:
    2. Insert the two posts on the right of the door into the holes on the right side of the opening.
    3. Press the tab on the left side of the door toward the right. The door will shift slightly to the right.
    4. As the door shifts to the right, push in the left side of the door to lock it into position.
    5. Reconnect the power cord and turn the product on.
    Step three: Make sure that the print carriage can move freely Follow these instructions to make sure the print carriage can move freely.
    1. With the product turned on, open the print cartridge access door. The print carriage might try to move into the access area. If so, allow it to move to that position.
    2. Without turning off the product, unplug the power cord from the back of the product. Unplug the power cord from the power source. The power cord must be unplugged to allow the parts to be moved by hand and to reset the paper feed mechanism, without the risk of an electrical shock.
    3. Looking in through either the print cartridge access door or the output paper tray, make sure the print cartridges are locked into the carriage and have not come loose. Also, make sure that there are no obstructions under or around the carriage to block it from moving.
    4. Make sure the print carriage can move freely across the width of the product by gently pushing the carriage to the left and then to the right. Clear any obstructions found. You may have to reach through the output paper tray to access the print carriage.
    5. Close the print cartridge access door and plug the power cord back to the back of the product. Plug the power cord into the power source.
    6. Press the On button to turn on the product.
    If the error message is not resolved, continue to the next step. Step four: Remove the print cartridges Improper placement or installation of the print cartridges can cause a carriage stall error condition. Follow these instructions to remove the print cartridges.
    1. Make sure the printer is turned on.
    2. Open the print cartridge access door, and then wait until the print carriage is idle and silent.
    Press down lightly on the end of each print cartridge to release it.
    • The tri-color print cartridge is on the left.
    • The black or photo print cartridge is on the right.
    Slide both cartridges out and place them on a clean sheet of paper. CAUTION: Do not touch the ink nozzles or copper-colored contacts. Touching these parts could result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections. Do not remove the copper strips. They are required electrical contacts.

    1. Disconnect the power cord.
    2. Move the carriage all the way to the left with your hand.
    3. Close the print cartridge access door.
    4. Reconnect the power cord.
    5. Turn the product on, if necessary.
    6. If the error message is resolved, the placement of the print cartridges caused the problem. Complete Step five: Reinstall the print cartridges. There is no need to complete any steps after Step five.
    If the error message is not resolved, complete Step five: Reinstall the print cartridges, and then continue with the subsequent steps. Step five: Reinstall the print cartridges step 6, Partial reset Follow these instructions to perform a partial reset of the product.

    The printer may be faulty. I suggest you return it to the supplier to have it fixed or replaced under warranty. If you try to fix it yourself you may void your warranty.

    If there's a carriage jam. While the printer is turned on, Open the access door of you printer.
    If the carriage is stuck at the left side, try moving it manually by hand to the right most part of the window. If it's stuck on the right, try moving it by hand to the left.
    If you've already done that. While the printer is turned on, unplug the power cord from the back. Close the access door. And then plug it back in.
    Make sure you restart the computer first just to avoid documents getting stuck in the print queue. Try printing again. Usually it does the trick.

    Stalled printer cartridges


    Sounds like an issue with the print carriage. When it's out of alignment and tries to print, it can make awful noises. HP.com has a web page that describes a number of troubleshooting steps when you have print carriage issues:

    Carriage Jam Errors

    There's also a related web page having to do with the noise coming from the printer:

    Noisy Print Carriage

    Hope this helps. Good luck.

    Remove and checl color cartridge


    The problem most likely is with the electrical contact between the color cartridge and print carriage. Even if you've replaced the cartridge, if the contacts on the carriage are still dirty, it won't make a good connection with the new cartridge and the error message will still appear.

    Fortunately, the HP web site has a solution posted at the following link:

    Cleaning Cartridge and Print Carriage Contacts

    Good luck.

    The following error message appears on the color graphics display after you insert a cartridge: Remove and Check Print Cartridges . The printer will not print. The message does not specify which cartridge has caused the error. Solution This error message indicates that the printer cannot determine which cartridge is causing the error. Follow the steps below to solve the problem.
    1. Remove the color cartridge from the left stall (which has a blue latch) and refasten the latch. Leave the other cartridge in place.
    2. Close the printer, wait 10 to 15 seconds, then look at the LCD display.
      • If the LCD display reads Insert Color Cartridge in Left Stall , the color cartridge may be causing the problem. Follow the steps below:
        1. Clean the color cartridge contacts.
        2. Reinsert the color cartridge into the carriage and close the blue latch.
        3. Close the printer and wait 10 to 15 seconds.
        4. If the LCD display reads Remove and Check Print Cartridges , replace the color cartridge.
      OR
      • If the LCD display reads Remove and Check Print Cartridges , follow the steps below:
        1. Reinsert the color cartridge.
        2. Remove the black or photo cartridge, depending on which one is installed in the right stall. The right stall has the gray latch. Be sure to refasten the latch on the empty stall.
        3. Clean the black or photo cartridge contacts.
        4. Reinsert the black or photo cartridge.
        5. Close the printer and wait 10 to 15 seconds.
        6. If the LCD display reads Remove and Check Print Cartridges , replace the black or photo cartridge.

    1. Remove and then reinsert the cartridge indicated in the error message.
    2. If the error is still displayed, clean the contacts.
    1. If the error message is Error. Remove and Check Black or Photo Cartridge , the following steps may help:
    1. Remove both cartridges, lower the latches, and close the printer access door.
    2. Turn off the unit by pressing the On button on the front panel. Wait for the printer to completely shut down.
    3. Turn the printer back on by pressing the On button.
    4. When the message display reads Insert Print Cartridges , open the access door and replace the cartridges.
    1. If neither of the steps above fixed the problem, either the cartridge or the printer is faulty
