You have to go through the user manual and there is a procedure to turn the message off. It comes on after an x amount of pages have been printed. If you do not have a manual contact hp.com or retrevo.com to get one online free. God bless.

My HP 5940 printer squeaks when it prints. What should I do?


Nothing really. Some are just noisy. Probably some paper dust. You can clean it carefully if there is any obvious dust with a vacuum

Continue to receive "Remove and check black cartridge" message


I would call hp again. The cartridge you purchased is covered for a one year warranty and they should be able to replace to make sure issue is not with the cartridge itself. Since this is not a computer issue tell them you have a mac and you will get to Canada support instead of India.
