Incompatible cartridge error on HP Envy 4527

I have the same problem.

I am on the Instant Ink service. Both cartridges have been working fine. Then suddenly the colour one keeps getting this error message, to reinstall it.

I have turned the printer off at the wall, reinstalled the cartridge etc, but nothing is working.
