This can occur if the printer misreads the electrical ID of the cartridges. You may be able to cure the issue by cleaning the cartridge contacts as shown here.

It is also possible the cartridge has failed electrically. In this case check the warranty information here if it is an HP original cartridge or contact your dealer for warranty information.

Also make sure you are using a #15 black and #78 color cartridge, other cartridges that look similar such as the #23, #17 or #41 color or #45 black are not compatible.
