Default HP2000C ink cartridge problem

I just installed two new ink cartridges but the printer tells em they're empty. When I pull them out and reinsert the printer works for awhile then I have to repeat the process. Any ideas?
HP support is no help at all unless I want to pay $25.

Sounds like the sensor is prolly starting to head south. I'd just keep doing what you are doing.

I had a similar problem. I called tech support and they had me clean the contacts where the cartridge fits in the printer. They look like little ball bearings. I used alocohol and a cotton cloth. Resolved the problem. Hopes this helps.
