Solved!

Ink Cartridge Is Dry

HP Recommended
Envy 5540
iOS

Received the ink cartridge last month from Amazon. Installed it and my printer still says “add ink.”  Shake it and it’s empty. Cartridge is dried up and now I have no ink. Amazon is out of stock until May 5 and I’m quarantined under June.

Thanks. Those steps did not fix my ink issue.  I can call due to disability issues and you don’t have an email address for support. 

I’m quite unhappy about $23 being wasted and no working printer.

I understand your concern and I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP.

They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact.

 

Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

 

If you are unfamiliar with how the Community's private message capability works, you can learn about that here:

Hi Kumar. I received a private message from an employee and tried to respond. The error of “html content” keeps showing up though I’m using no code. I hit Reply and it says that I’m sending too many messages!  I’ve tried four times but I can’t respond and the only code is in my email address. The ampersand symbol is the error I think. 

Could JeffHelp look up my account here and email me?  Otherwise I’m doomed with a broken printer and dead ink.
