Black Cartridge Problem

HP Officejet 5255
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I bought this printer recently this year.  Black ink cartridge shows "remove and reinstall."  I removed and reinstalled but message continued to appear and message said, "replace the indicated cartridge.   I do not want to buy the $40 replacement ink cartridge at Walmart since I am enrolled in the HP Instant Ink Cartridges replacement.  Any chance HP would send me one in good faith?  Thanks you.
