Colour ink cartridge needs replacing

HP Envy 5530 series

My printer has a cartridge error message. I have re-seated the cartridge but this does not fix the problem.

None of the suggest support pages make any difference.


I cannot replace the cartridge as I have no spare Instant Ink.

I cannot request a new instant ink cartridge as HP Smart Apps says there is a error in the cartridge.


Catch 22 - so can you ship me new cartridges please.

Colour ink cartridge needs replacing

Hi! @Debs001


Have you tried checking with a regular ink cartridge? Does the issue persist?


Update the printer firmware to the latest version and check if it helps.


Check the ink levels on your printer and replace the low, empty or faulty ink cartridges.


Clean the electrical contacts on the ink cartridges.


Make sure the ink cartridges are inserted correctly
