Sometimes a badly clogged print head needs to be cleaned 4 or 5 times.
If that does not work, the print heads may need replacing. In many cases this is more expensive than a new printer. There is also the possibility that the cartridge is empty and not reading correctly OR the electrical contacts between the cartridge and the printer need cleaning because some ink leaked out. Use rubbing alcohol and Q-Tips to clean.
