Instant Ink cartridge issue

HP Recommended
HP Envy 5640

We have an HP ENVY 5640 printer with an instant ink account. I am getting an error message come up from the colour ink cartridge. The printer works find in black and white when I remove the colour cartridge. I have followed all the trouble shooting advice online but it still doesn't work. This has happened to us once before and previously we needed to be sent a new cartridge. I haven't had any success trying to solve this using the virtual chat function.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi! @Annette76

 

Have you enrolled in the instant ink services?

 

Have you tried checking with a regular ink cartridge? Does the issue persist?

 

Please share the operating system you are running on the PC to assist you better.

 

Check the ink levels on your printer and replace the low, empty or faulty ink cartridges.

 

Clean the electrical contacts on the ink cartridges.

 

Make sure the ink cartridges are inserted correctly

If the issue still persists after trying out the steps and if you have enrolled in the instant ink services, Please share us few details through a private message. So I can check the account and ship you the replacement ink cartridges.

Hi,

We are on the instant ink service so I am loath to purchase another cartridge.

I use macOS High Sierra.

 

I have followed all the trouble shooting steps.
