I also have the OfficeJet 6500 and had the same problem. The black text was printing using a mix of colored inks instead of the black ink, resulting in a grey, fuzzy text. I finally found a solution. In each application under Page Setup, there is an option called "Format for". Mine had been set to "Any Printer". I changed that to "Officejet 6500 E709n [830E4A]" and now it prints the black just fine. I have a Mac running 10.4.11. Hope this helps.

It only prints green copies, no black. Why


Needs the black ink cartridge replaced/refilled.
If this has been done, check to make sure the cartridge has been installed correctly.

Make sure the Black and Green cartridges have not been switched by mistake. Especially If your printing black text and only green shows up.
Good luck!

My watermarks are printing as pink instead of gray, this started happening after I changed the black cartridge. I have not made changes to the original document, and normal text still prints as black


if that is a refilled cartridge, you might have a problem with the ink. try print something (text) in pure black , and grey only, and see waht happens, if does notprint, means the printer has hard time with that black cartridge.

No black ink printing


This is a guess but from what I have read I would say bad printhead, Kodak and a batch made in usa plant that got too hot in processing thus are faulty. Contact Kodak and go thru a few test with them and they will ship you out a new printhead, new ink tanks by overnight air and FREE of charge.
