Hi Diane,
Ensure there is no material, tapes, or anything else stuck inside and that the cartridges are seated in the carriage properly.
You may have to remove the cartridges and firmly insert them again.
Ensure any tape has been removed from the cartridges first.
The printer initialization should then start automatically within 5 minutes.
