How can I clear message "Cartridge Error?"

The message Cartridge Error shows on the screen. I have reinstalled new Lexmark cartridges twice and the message will not go away. It printed an alignment page and then the message returns. I consulted the manual and no solution works. My printer is a X6650 all in one printer.

Is this a good question?

Inside the cartridge carrier you will see copper contacts..Take a cotton swab and clean those contacts real good with rubbing alcohol and clean the contacts on the new cartridges. Then re-install your cartridges. Those contacts read a memory chip inside the cartridges. The message should then go away...

Hope that helps....
