You never Mentioned the Make and Model of the Printer.Anyway, You could try cleaning the contact points on both ink cartridge and on printer with cotton swab lightly dipped in alcohol.
On most Occasions, electronic chips on the edge of the printer cartridges are to blame for the problems.Use a Different cartridge to see , if that helps you.
Clean your Cartridge chip ( the small one ) and you could also try to clean the Printer cable that detects the Cartridge chip.
Unless you might need to call professional on site or send the unit for Repair.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
