That is a strange message unless you have changed the print head recently (or it has become defective). The first thing I would do is try reseating the print head.
Unplug the printer.
1) Remove the 5 ink cartridges.
2) Lift the lever that is just to the left of where the ink cartridges sit. This is the print head lock level.
3) The print head is located under the ink cartridges (if they were still there) lift it out carefully.
4) Inspect for damage but do not touch anything or it can cause problems.
5) Carefully replace print head and lower level until it clicks
6) Replace ink cartridges
Plug in the printer and test.

If you still have a problem -
Call 1 (800) 828-4040 for warranty part replacement or to order a part out of warranty.

I received a suggestion from one of your techs to clean the gold contacts with distilled water using a cotton swab. It worked. Thank you.
