Installed new HP color cartridge and got the above error message.  I cleaned both cartridge contact points and contact points inside with distilled water and qtips as suggested on the website.  Did this twice.  Still same problem.  Need help as I am

Re: error message: incorrect color cartridge installed

Hello janie,

You may want to disconnect the printer power while it is on. Leave it disconnected for a minute or two then reconnect it to see if the error is cleared. You may also want to reseat the cartridges during this process to see if the error clears.
