    Try giving the contacts on the chip a clean with a pencil eraser or an alcohol swab.

    If this doesn't help try putting a cartridge of the wrong color ink in this same slot in the JV3 - If you get the message "COLOR OF INK" you'll know that the chip reader in this position is good. If you still get "NON-ORIGINAL INK" then the chip reader is bad.

    unscrew a chip [one phillips screw] off a known good cart ...see if it works ..only thing that will be wrong on the screen is the amount left in cart ..it will read what was on other cart.....this will least tel you if "chip" is bad...and you can move on
    hope this helps sir
