there are 4 possibilities here.
1) the ink cartridge although appearing OK may have dried out or be faulty. If you have just purchased the cartridge take it back to the place of purchase for an exchange/refund.
2) not all the packaging has been completely removed. To check this remove the cartridge from the printer & make sure that ther is no plastic wrapping still on the cartridge.
3) the print nozzle is blocked. to check this go to control panel: printers & faxes right click on your printer then select properties. select the maintanence tab then do a nozzle check test. If the black does not print try selecting the clean & then deep clean items, If this still does not work remove the cartridges from the print head & see if using a soft lint free cloth you can remove any ink build up fom both the print side & the cartridge side of the print head. If this still does not work number 4 will apply.
4) your print head has failed. If u have warranty means better replace it..

The ink cartridges that you replaced are brand new or refilled ?
