An ink system failure error message usuallly indicates a faulty printhead

please follow the below steps

remove the ink cartridges and printhead from the printer and turn off printer

unplug power cord

clean the golden contacts on the ink cartridge and printhead with cotton swab and alcohol

wait for a minute

keep the ON button on printer pressed for 10 secs

plug in power cord and turn on printer and check

if still the error repeats that would indicate a faulty printhead and would need to be replaced

if printer is within warranty you can contact HP to get the parts replaced else if out of warranty you can order printhead and replace it yourself

i hope you understand that in cases of hardware failure i can only suggest reset and cleaning steps but cannot make a bad part work again
