The troubleshooting steps in this page may help resolve the issue.  If not check the x-bias spring and make sure it is not dislodged.  If it is dislodged (1) (compare it with the other cartridge) then look for damage to the flex in the back.  If the flex has been damaged (2) then the printer will need service or replacement.

Unfortunately it appears your black slot (on the right) has the spring dislodged and from your picture it appears that the flex has been punctured.  If this is the case unfortunately your printer will need repair or replacement.

Thank you Mr. Headrick for your reply.The problem i'm having is with the left side. I will check to see if the right side is affecting the left. Thanks again for your help and time.
