Were there any unusual circumstances leading up to its demise? If you can't get support from HP there is not much hope. Yours is not a regular error message. Any errors shown in Control Panel/Printers..../your printer? Any errors shown in Device Manager, Universal Serial Bus Controllers, probably "USB Printing Support" item. Any recent Windows issues? Have you tried the unit's other capabilities to see if they have issues?
All you can do is the basics. You should check the paper paths thoroughly for any blockages or build-ups. There is a clean-out door at the back. You could try uninstalling the printer and reinstalling. Check cables connections and cartridges are fully inserted.
Although the price of ink cartridges is daylight robbery, the upside is that the actual printers are relatively cheap.
