false warning to replace ink cartridge

HP Recommended
HP Office Jet 6970
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My printer gave a warning to replace the blue ink cartridge (the other cartridges needed to be replaced soon, but were still full enough). So I did. Then the message window didn't show a message that everything was okay...no, it said I to replace the blue ink cartridge agáin ánd the yellow ink cartridge!?? Resetting the printer by unplugging the power cord and plugging it in again after 60 seconds didn't help, checked if cartridges were properly installed: they were. And I have no intention to clean the cartridges or something as instructed in case of trouble, because they, especially the new cartridge, are clean.
What to do?

What is your Instant Ink account number or the email address that you use to log in to your account?

 

Also, verify your shipping address, printer serial number and contact phone number for further assistance.
