Ink cartridge

hp deskjet 2514

I bought 2 new hp 61 ink cartridges and installed them. After using the cartridges, the ink indicator started to flash and a notification came up saying that the ink cartridges were incompatible. I know that the cartridges are compatible because i have used them and it is newly purchased from Walmart and is the same one the printer came with. I have tried taking out the cartridges and replacing them and have unplugged and plugged the printer but have  the same problem. I have also tried cleaning the cartridges to no effect.
