You could have a bad cartridge and the printer is not reading the chip, causing this error. Best way to check is try a new cartridge.

Make sure you did put in a genuine and new cartridge. Then you have to make sure the contacts on the chip that is on the cartridge are clem and shiny. Not a spec of dust is allowed on the contacts. After replacement switch of the printer and switch on, to make sure the printer gets a reset and will start up with a complete check of the printer.

New cartridge wouldnt print but sounded like it was printing. You can check ink levels clean or align cartridge by pushing menu then tools. I cleaned contact points w qtip and alcohol. What seemed to work is putting alcohol on cartridge where ink is released and putting back into machine wet did this three times first time little dots of ink then a faint print and now it is printing must have been dried ink further then I could access.
