Got back to town late Monday, 2018.01.29; found message: Instant Ink account-1.30AM-no link, nothing

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Returned home late at night after some 30 days away.  Next morning saw a message on printer LCD (?) panel:



I was frantic as the only links I could imagine with HP about InstantInk would be HPConnected and InstantInk: opened these pages but there was literally almost no text, no hyperlinks, and nothing to lead me to another HP page, webmail address, nothing ...   The only link I could think of was if HP has a presence on Facebook which was true.


Left message - "Entity alledging to be HP left message on my printer "Instant Ink Problems" - please contact HP or your printer will be blocked in  a few days.

     "Please advise, send email to email address of record, left a telephone message with name and phone number of designate contact person/group and nature of problem."  -- or something like that I was exhausted and didn't think to do a screen capture, or anything else.  Plus it was frustrating to get a message, to paraphrase from my POV


"Hey contact me - there's a problem with your account" -- no info re where, how, hyperlink or phone number, etc.  

So I went to HPInstantInk and HPConnected, but found no message for me, no link, and no way to contact 

1. HPInstant Ink


3.  HP (general support to drill down to Instant Ink or connected)  - only after three days now, and counting,


4.  Seems to me the contact process by HP, HP systems, or HP Instant Ink, OR WHAT?  Don't try "HPConnected" it does not seem to connect to any other HP page,  any other HP backup or surrogate level:

A. SORRY CANNOT ATTACH IMAGE MENTIONED  - Either I am tired or  hard of reading ?


The text pages provided in lieu of the missing image

Please follow below steps to update the billing information:
