Hi there and welcome
Can you use a napkin and some cleaning alcohol and clean the contact points on the cartridge and the contacts in the print head in the printer.
Make sure they are completely clean, then wait 5 minutes for it to dry, put the cartridges in and tell me if you still get the error please.

what's cleaning alcohol? I am not in an office environment, home based so no access to techy stuff
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
ok, its an alcohol based cleaning product.
Do you have any rubbing alcohol or distilled spirits? eg; Vodka, as that can be a substitute.
