OK, thanks for confirming it is an ink service module that you need to replace. Give me a moment to check where a new ink service module can be ordered.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find a new replacement ink service module for HP deskjet 460 printer since the printer has been discontinued. Only the ink cartridges can be ordered. Other parts are unavailable.

However, what you can do is re-use the existing ink service module and clean it yourself. Do that by soaking it into the warm water. Leave it in the water for a few hours and then clean it with a paper towel. Put it back and then the printer should print as before.

Would you be able to do that?
