Bad or empty. Check HP.com for and troubleshooting assistance, it's a pretty good resource for their printers.

sounds like a bad cartridge, I would 1st clean the contacts on both cartridges and the little metal contacts pins on the carriage unit, then try a known good cartridge... Good luck........

Ugh, I hate that model printer. The software is WAY to sensitive, the one I use for documents at the office is always screaming about an ink issue. Hell, I've had it print over 800 pages with the monitor saying it was outta ink.

Just FYI, HP overfills their ink cartridges so that the stated volume is the usuable volume. Not sure if you guys knew that.

I doubt that the ink has evaproated, could just be a bad cartridge.

HP makes good printers.
