Cartridge Problem that can't be fixed

HP Recommended
HP Envy4520
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, hoping someone can help me out. I have an HP Envy 4520 series which up until now has been working perfectly. Today I have been trying to print, and I am getting the following message:

 

Cartridge Problem - The cartridge indicated is not intended for use in this printer as it is currently configured.

 

This is odd because I haven't changed the cartridge. It's the proper, same  HP colour cartridge that has been working up until today. I used the virtual agent and followed all the steps indicated, including unplugging at the power source for 60 seconds, removing the cartridge and carefully cleaning the  electrical contacts, and checking for firmware updates.

 

None of these has worked and the message is still showing.

 

Any more advice please?

Hi,

I have tried everything in the support documents but with no luck. I'm now in contact with an HP support employee through private message. I think I probably will end up getting a new cartridge. No idea why it went wrong.

Update

HP support is sending me out a replacement colour ink cartridge. Quickly resolved with no problems, which is great service.
