It's possible the printer can't recognise the non HP ink. Often the quality & reliability isn't as good as original. You could try cleaning as described in the link HERE. Failing that, either switch to original HP or return the remans to the place of purchase.

  2. Inspect the contacts for ink and debris buildup.
  3. Wipe the contacts with a swab until no debris remains on them.
