To safe guard against improper ink usage, it is possible that HP cartiridges will fail upon ink injection.
This is done to help save the printer from being damaged by using the wrong ink. Ink has a certain "thickness" or vescosity (to be technical). If the ink is too thick or not thick enough it can cause problems for the heads within the printer (the little parts that put the ink to the paper). If this is the case the heads can clog or drip which, in the end, causes problems for the printer and not just the cartridge. Problems with the printer will cost more money in the end.
Purchase an HP brand cartridge to replace the one within the printer.
If you had inserted the cartridge the correct way the only solution here is the cartridge is faulty. Try installing a different one for your printer. I had that problem with installing the black one saying it wasn't there and the light on the printer of my HP flashed. I used another one and it worked perfectly. Some cartridges are faulty from the factory so return it where you got it and replace it with another one.
