HP 2840 Print 'Replace Supplies' error

I'd really appreciate any and all help! This machine is only 2 years old and I'd really hate to have to throw it away! During printing today, an error came up 'Replace Supplies' with the "!" blinking red! I have repowered, reloaded all color cartridges, reloaded drum. I don't know what else to do! Any and all suggestions would be greatly apprciated!
Thanks for your help and time!
Do you have the hp toolbox software loaded for this printer. If you do run it and it should tell you what supply needs to be replaced. It could be any of the color toner or the drum unit which needs to be replaced. Had you gotten any message previously telling you one of those item was low? If so it is probably that item that needs to be replaced.

Try this link to find out the supplies status- most likely the imaging drum needs to be replaced.
For every 2 black cartridges you will need to replace the drum once! Ouch!
