    The ink level sensor also has a little button attached to it which actually senses if the cartridge is installed or not. If that isn't in the proper position it could mean the cartridge isn't pushing the button. That would be my first guess. If it were the chip reader you would be getting a "Wrong Cart" error.

    The switch was installed properly and I can see that the ink is pushing the sensor in. I am not getting a "wrong cart " error. I also cleaned the chip.
