Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.

Can you please tell me the complete error code/number showing on the printer itself?

HP instant ink problem
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
My printer email is:***@******.***

Thank you for confirming,

that is a service through HP, and most likely a billing matter that you are out of ink and they need something from you in order to ship you new ones. You would have to contact HP directly for that, it is not something that can be fixed by a remote support session.

Does the ink dry up if not used I have not printed very much?
ink dries out from not being used and the printer also uses up ink during routine cleaning and maintenance processes which happen automatically even when not printing. Really you just need new ink to move forward. You don’t have to buy it from up you can order it on amazon or purchase at target OfficeMax etc.
