Instant Ink Cartridge issue

HP Recommended
HP Envy 7640

I have had Instant Ink for awhile and for the past few weeks, I have been unable to print because of an error message that states "Remove and reinstall the indicated ink cartridge, making sure it is correctly installed, and then touch OK". I have done this multiple times and cleaned the cartridge to no avail. And the account is saying that they won't mail me a new cartridge until the issue is resolved. Okay, so how do I resolve the issue? 


It was originally stating this error for both cartridges, but it stopped on the color cartridge after I cleaned it. Not as lucky with the black cartridge.


Please help.
