Double-check the cartridge part number. It seems that HPLIP is quite
picky about having the correct cartridge part number, and to complicate
matters HP printers and cartridges seem to vary across the world, so
that a cartridge bought overseas is not necessarily going to work right
(when HPLIP is driving the printer).
