C4280: genuine cartridge reports "Cartridge is out - black ink, cartridge is non-HP" in HP Utility

ok -first off - the printer works fine.   the issue is we cannot read how much ink is left in our black HP 74 ink we just bought last month.


when I bring up "HP Utility" it reports how much color ink is left but where it should report the black level there is a red "X"


at the top it says "Cartridge is out - black ink, cartridge is non-HP"
