Why is the "564 Setup" cartridge not compatible for use when a 564 cartridge is required?

I just replaced cartridges and noticed that the label says "564 Setup".  My HP Photosmart Plus B210 printer gives me this error message and won't print and won't accept the cartridge.

Setup cartridges are only to be used the very first time in the printer upon installation and then until gone.  After that, you never use a 'setup' cartridge again.

Thank you. 

 

It seems as if HP is following the Gillette Razor methodology:  Sell the razor very cheap, but make the profits on the expensive and exclusive razor blades.

Brand New HP 564 color cartridges will no longer work in my HP C309a. I know HP no longer sells/makes this printer; but have cartridges been redesigned so they no longer function in this printer. Older cartridges had 3 electrical contacts. Newer cartridges have four. What gives?

thislooks like a similar problem to mine... the replacement 564 simply does not fit, it's bigger than the setup 564, makes the printer unusable to not be able to replace the 564 black cartridge.

 

in my case, it's a  HP Photosmart Premium (Product CN504A, Model C310a), but the problem you describe is the same. 

How about the concept of compatible parts... i'm ready to buy the ink, but the 564 indicated as correct when researching and ordering from HP, does not fit the printer referenced.  how about part numbers that are different when the product is not interchangeable?

From my understanding, across the entire lifecycle of the 564 ink, the only change that has been made was that the 564XL Black (at least here in Canada) was made a little narrower. Please keep in mind that the C310a takes two different black cartridges. One is a bigger, wider one for text black. It is the right-most cartridge (and is represented by the pentagon). There is also a photo black, which is the same width as the color cartridges, and it goes on the left. (as in the second picture on the below link).

 

Please see "New Smaller Body for HP 178, 364, 564, and 862 Black XL Ink Cartridges" -- HP Consumer Support for more details.
