Defective instant ink

HP Recommended
Office Jet Pro 6968
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Similar to other who posted here, I am subscribed to HP instant ink. My printer was inactive for 2 months as I was a snowbird in another state. When I returned and attempted to print a color document, the result was poor and I got an error message saying to replace the color cartridges (which had been shipped in November 2019). I did so using the new cartridges. The print quality was still very poor. I went through all the steps outlined in the support documents. The test documents improved with successive "head cleaning" -- but the blue and yellow cartridges never put out any ink. I think I was shipped defective cartridges. In an attempt to verify this hypothesis, I purchased and installed new HP color cartridges. I then learned that the printer would not accept the new cartridges -- even though they were genuine HP products... (lame). Now I'm stuck.. I can't print color documents, I can't find a human being to talk to about this.

I posted this plea for help on a previously "solved" discussion 5 days ago.  I don't think it was looked at since I have received no communication on the topic.  The "solution" to the problem was to communicate subscription information privately to an agent.  This is  frustrating....
