Faulty Instant ink cartridge with no support

HP Recommended

I have only just signed up to Instant Ink and the first cartridges have arrived but do not work.  It says "faulty cartridge" and is either not an instant ink cartridge or there is an issue with the installed cartridge.  I have been through all the suggestions and tried the vitual assistant but nothing is working and I still cannot print.  I followed instructions to disconnect/reconnect printer power, clean sensors on both cartridge & printer but I still receive the error message. I am unable to order through Instant Ink because of the error message. I also tried to speak to an agent but because my printer warranty is expired it does not go any further. I am still an instant ink subscriber so I do not know why I can not speak to an agent especially when I'm dealing with a faulty cartridge that needs to be replaced.
