Basically, one day, all of a sudden, for no apparent reason, my printer started rejected my black ink cartridge, claiming it was the wrong kind. Of course, this is absurd, as it was just using the same cartridge successfully for several printouts... and all the numbers check.
Is there anything I can do, or will replacing the cartridge with (another) new one fix the error message?
I've tried everything as far as rebooting, re-installing, etc... but the problem persists.

If both of both of the cartridge has dried up, I suggest you replace them both to prevent further problems to your printer. If you are planning to print just black from your printer, It is still advisable to use a working color cartridge as a clogged one can cause cartridge detection problems which may result to further printing issues.

My printer did that a few months ago. I tried everything to get it printing black but in the end I had to take the ink cartridge back and return a new one. Some ink cartridges dry out when they are being shipped if not stored in proper conditions.
Filling your cartridge with non-HP ink won't cause an error. There are basically two reasons for ink system failure, The cartridge is no good or the ink system has failed. Some of these machines can be reset. But, try replacing cartridge first.
