Difficulty installing ink tank

HP Recommended

Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I recently purchased my printer and have received my first Instant Ink Cartridges. I've tried  to install the tri-ink cartridge a number of times but all I get on the printer display is 'Cartridge Problem - remove and reinstall the cartridge'    I'm no novice at changing cartridges  but I cannot press this one in any harder. I've followed the video on the machine, I've contacted the 'Virtual Support' thing. I'm doing all they say and yet I still get the 'Cartridge Problem' message!! 

Can anyone suggest a way to do this please? Is there a phone number for HP Tech Support I can ring to actually talk to a person instead of a machine??
