Try printing a test print from the printer's control panel. If it prints ok, then it's probably a driver issue with your computer. If it doesn't print, then it's a hardware issue with your printer.

✔ Best Answer
Or the printhead below the cartridge-cradle my be severely blocked by old, dried ink, in which case the printer's cleaning cycle will be unable to clear the blockage.

Removal of the printhead and soaking it overnight in warm soapy water should fix that.

Severe printhead blockage is usually a symptom of the printer not having being used for an extended period. It's essential to use an inkjet printer every 3 or 4 days (printing something which uses a small amount of every ink colour) to keep fresh ink flowing through the printhead before existing ink in the printhead becomes dry & thick.
