You know, there is a joke here. But I shall let sleeping dogs lie. OK, you can dip the Q-tips in your Alcohol Source and rub them gently on the Copper/Gold contacts on the cartridge and the Printhead. You should be able to see those with out a hitch. Let each surface dry for 15 minutes, reinstall the Cartridges and print as normal. Chime in and let me know of your results...

OK, I wasn't kidding about the scotch, that's all I have. Let's give it a try. Starting now

OK, most excellent. A little stronger source of Alcohol but it should do the trick.
