Won't recognize full ink cartridge


I'm getting the 'change ink cartridge' message, but when I do, it still gives me this message. I've tried two different cartridges, and turning it on and off, and keep getting this message.

I hope someone can help!


cartridges have chips at the front. Try cleaning the contacts in the printer.

I fixed it!

I taped q-tips to a paint brush to gently clean the ink slot's contact points. This got me far enough so it would recognize the full cartridge, and then I could do a power clean.
