Default Incorrect colour cartridge installed

I think my printer is on its last legs. I have had it for quite a few years and it has been heavily used.

It is a HP G85 all-in-one thingy. The scanner still works (and it is a good scanner too...), the fax haven't been used for the last couple of years, so don't really know about that.

The error message reads mostly 'Incorrect colour cartridge installed', sometimes I get 'Remove and check colour cartridge' so my guess is that it is a connection not connecting somewhere.

I does work occasionally and it is the correct cartridge, and I have tried a couple now with the same problem.

Have done a hard reset a few times, which have until now made it work for a week or so, but now it seems to ignore my efforts altogether.

Any suggestions are welcome but I won't be spending much money on it.
