Instant Ink Cartridge not being recognised

HP Envy 5530
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Printer reports instant ink cartridge is faulty - on the Instant Ink Information it shows as Non-Hp Instant Ink.  On the printer there is the message Ink Cartridge Problem - the following ink cartridges must be replaced. It is the black one.


I have had this printer about 2 years but this is my first instant ink installation!  the color cartridge installed ok but not the black.  I have tried cleaning the contacts on the printer to no avail.  If I install my old black cartridge it is correctly reported as empty.  I have another, new, non instant-ink black cartridge but if I try to install that I get the message 'Remove and reinsert cartridges into correct slots'!!!


I don't want to phone support because I live in Spain and it will be in Spanish.  The only option I can see is to remove the black cartridge completely and use single cartridge operation!


Please help.
