HP PSC1210 Printer issues ... help!?!?

Ugh! I am about pull my hair out!

I have an HP PSC 1210 all in one. Its about 3 years old (maybe 4.) Never had any issues with it, until the other day when it went completely haywire. I was in the middle of a print job when it stopped. Just stopped printing right in the middle of the page. (It was a b/w text document, printing on "fast draft.") I waited a few minutes, then shut the printer off to make it give me my paper back and now this.

All of a sudden, I am getting this error that says "Problem with Print Cartridge." I followed all the instructions on HPs site - cleaned the print cartridges and connections, unplugged and replugged in the printer, etc. Eventually I uninstalled and reinstalled all of the software for the printer.

I can make it scan but it will not copy or print - it has a big LED "E" on the display panel and the stupid print error on my monitor.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with my cartridges. They are about 6 weeks old, nowhere near empty. The printer was working fine one day and then just went bonkers!

What in the world do I do now??

Where is the LED "E"? I looked on the manual and did not find a light or button like that on the computer.
can u disconnect the ink holder or check the connection and c if the cartridge can move freely
