I am sorry that you are having that problem with your printer. Here is a document addressing the incompatible print cartridge error message. It will offer troubleshooting steps to attempt to try to fix that error message and get the printer back to functioning correctly. I hope this helps.

Re: 61xl ink cartridge incompatible

Hello,

I appreciate the solution offered, however I tried all the options presented  in the document to no avail! The priner works fine with HP 61 black & color, but will not accept the HP61XL Black (have not tried color). Perhaps the driver needs to be fixed?

Thanks,

Sue Caughey

That cartridge should work for that printerIt is on the list for compatibilityI have check for windows 7 and vista operating systemsat this time I do not see an update available for the firmware yetCompare the cartridge body to that  of the others. The cartridge itself might be faulty.
