If anyone else is having this problem, this seemed to have worked for me... hopefully crossing my fingers...

 

Anyway, I just cleaned the copper connection on the back of the cartridge with distilled water and cotton swabs.  Squeeze the water out of the swab so it is only damp, and use a dry one to dry it when it looks clean.  Hope this helps.
