Is this a new printer or have you used it to print before, pajamahead? Try removing the cartridges and reinstalling them. Also check that the little drive-belt isn't stuck or hindered in some way.

Does it have a transport lock?

This may have inadvertently been activated or, if it's a new printer, not been switched off.
