Have an error message that asks me to reinstall cartridge.  3 colour cartridge.  I have done so.  Have also followed all the troubleshooting hints.  Unplugged for 60 seconds.  Checked for updates and cleaned contacts.  How can I solve this problem the printer is only 18 months old and hasn't been used a lot.
