"Electrical Failed Pen" Error

Can anybody explain to me what an "Electrical Failed Pen" error is? I am now getting this error after replacing one of my cartridges. This seems like a downgrade from the problem I was having yesterday, but at least the printer is telling me WHAT the error is now.

 

Any ideas? "Electrical failed pen"?

This error would indicate an electrical problem with your ink cartridge.   Cleaning the cartridge contacts as shown here may resolve the issue.  In the future please mention your printer model and other pertinent information, it would help in providing answers.
