How embarrassing!  I solved it - the new filter was appearing under a
new heading "Hewlett-Packard", and not under "HP" like all the rest.
I didn't notice this during several frustrating hours - must have been

Mind you, the printer still won't print, so the quest goes on.

Sorry about the stupid question (but questions only become stupid once
you've found the answer).
