    Hi! :)

    I'm writing to ask for an advice.
    I have recently (today) cleaned my print head as the ink was dried out and stuck in there, and my printer didn't print anything but magenta.
    The problem I encountered having assemblied the printer is that the cartridges are not recognized.
    Strange thing is that if I take one of them out, the error shows up for this particular cartridge. If all of them are inserted, it shows for all of them.
    I have wiped the pins and chips with alcohol - no effect given :(

    Is is possible that any of the strips inside are dirty and cause the problem? Should I dismantle it again and wipe them down or let it wait till tomorrow to settle?

    I will take any reasonable advice.

    Thanks in advance!
