HP Recommended
hp deskjet 2620

My printer is showing an error - incompatable ink cartridge,  I am on the instant ink, so they should be legit.  I have changed the cartridges for new ones and stll the same error.  I have done software updates and still have the error.  My printer is offline and it will not let me get it back online because of this issue.  it printed loads of printer status reports one after the other and then the error appeared.
