One of the cartridges is not being detected as present. Try re-seating each cartridge, one at a time, firmly, then close up the printer, and see if it clears the error. Then try pulling the plug on the printer while it is On, waiting 10 minutes, and trying again.

The printer must detect the new cartridges fully before exiting Reserve Mode or Single Cartridge Mode.

Technician: Russell H., Printer and Office Tech replied 1 year ago

If the printer cannot detect the new cartridges as a whole, all of them, then it will stay in One Cartridge Mode or Single Cartridge mode. If swapping and checking and re-seating the cartridges has no result to get it out of One Cartridge mode, not even with shutting off the printer for several minutes or longer and turning it On again, the printer might be defective, perhaps. (And if so, if within 1 year of purchase date, contacting HP about it and putting in a defective-within-warranty claim, for free service-repairing under warranty terms, would be the right thing to do.)
