remove and install ink cartridge message keeps popping up

HP ENVY 7645 Printer
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

All of a sudden my HP Envy 7645 printer started displaying the message 'Remove and reinstall the indicated ink cartridge, making sure it is correctly installed' for both ink cartridges.  I tried taking out and reinstalling both ink cartridge. I reinstalled the ink cartridges at the same time and then reinstalled each ink cartridge separately.  I continued to get the same message either way.  I then went on the community forum and found instructions to unplug the printer, wait 2-3 minutes, plug the printer back in, and try to reinstall the ink cartridges.  This did NOT work even though I tried this several times.  I also found that I can no longer see how much ink I have left in both cartridges on my printer touch screen. The screen shows an x in a red circle for both cartridges.  This has never occurred on this printer before.  I am at loss as to what to do.  Is there anything else I can do?  I don't really want to purchase more ink cartridges if new cartridges won't fix the problem since that would be a waste of a lot of money.  (I always purchase HP brand ink cartridges.)  If I can't find an answer for this I'm considering purchasing  a different brand of printer. Please help!
