Solved!

Wrong Instant Ink cartridge sent.

HP Recommended
HP ENVY 5640
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My printer has told me I need a new colour cartridge.  I use Instant Ink, and the system sent me a black cartridge in March and I have no new colour cartridge to insert.  How can this be?

The document here has information on contacting HP to get replacement Instant Ink cartridges.

Thank you, Bob, but that document just goes round in circles.  It cannot grasp that the system has not worked and that my ink has run out but the Instant Ink system has not sent me another cartridge.

Please go to https://instantink.hpconnected.com/. There is a phone number in the lower right opening screen to contact Instant Ink Support.

Thank you again, Bob.  Especially for highlighting the telephone number!  I called them this morning and the adviser acknowledged that the wrong cartridge had been sent and is sending me a correct one.

I can't see the 'Accept as Solution' button, but you have resolved my problem.

Many thanks.

I have just opened up my instant ink that has been delivered to me as my printer has said that my ink needs changing. I have an Envy 5640 series and the tri-colour is supposed to be no. 62 and i have been sent instant ink 65. I put it in as directed and it now comes up with the error that the cartridge is either not compatible or it has been damaged. Trying to contact someone from HP is like trying to pull teeth out. Why have a virtual program that doesn't help you? You need to have the human touch

What country are you in?  The document here has information on contacting HP to get replacement Instant Ink cartridges.  Log into the HP Instant Ink site, the phone number (or chat option for some countries) will be listed in the lower right of the opening screen.
