Incompatible Printhead error. C309a HP photosmart premium.

An ink cartridge leaked. I cleaned up what ink I could and replaced the cartridge and am getting an error. "The Printhead installed is not intended for use in this printer, or is damaged." I replaced the ink cartridge again. I still have the same error and I can't clear the message. I've rebooted, reinstalled driver, and don't know what to do next. I'm using Windows 7 operating system.

I am having the same exact problem with all brand new cartridges, no ink leaks, spills nothing. Have you found a resolution? I'm ready to pull my hair out!
