instant ink problem

HP Recommended

HP Officejet 4650.  I installed cartridges that came through the instant ink program long after I cancelled the instant ink program.  the printer worked fine for a few weeks but I'm now getting the CANNOT PRINT error.  How do I fix this???

The Instant Ink cartridges will not work after the program is canceled (after a possible grace period) and will need to be returned to HP as described in the terms of service.

 

You will need to replace the Instant Ink cartridges with retail cartridges.

The above is one of the biggest misconceptions regarding the Instant Ink program.  When you sign up for the Instant Ink program you are NOT purchasing ink, you are purchasing a subscription to a set number of pages per month.  The ink is supplied, but remains the property of HP and must be returned if you cancel the program in accordance with the terms of service.  See sections 5.d and 9.c of the terms of service here.

The Instant Ink cartridges will no longer work.  I have no experience with this I would not speculate on what other actions might be considered.  See the terms here.
