If I had to guess I would say U need to do a print head cleaning. If U have an LCD screen on your printer look for the menu, setup or button with a wrench on it and push it - scroll through the menu options untill U find tools or maintenance and click on it or push OK then look for print head cleaning. If your printer is fairly new you shouldnt have to do this unless you print too infrequently (less than once every week or 2) with these printers you need to print something at least every week , 2 at most

I've a 564XL black cartridge when inserted into a HP Photosmart 7525 refuses to happened while trying to print TICKETS WORTH $261 for an event this Sunday, the 25th...HELP......ROBE

The expiration date should not be of any problem. When the printer has an issue with the cartridge, it could be the contacts in the printer or on the print head are not clean or shiny. It looks as a communication problem. When the printer does not give an error, you just won't get black the hear must be cleaned.
OR when cleaning does not help we need a hefty measure.
When the print head is not on the cartridge, and cleaning does not work, remove the cartridge and let a drop of cleaning fluid fall in the nozzle, where the ink should go in. place the cartridge back and let the printer print a few pages of black. (just some text pages with black bold type face would do. Let it print till you see the printer is starting to show text, Then again do a clean cartridge and the printer should be fine for a while.

Hp officejet 4620 does not print with starter cartridge

If printer is in warranty, demand for replacement.

1. Check ink levels in printer..if levels are showing, take out all ink cartridges refill them.
If levels are zero, go for new cartridges.
2. If ink level are showing in printer & physically cartridges having ink, then problem with print head, try to clean the clogged nozzles.

I have a 4620, and had the same thing occur with the black ink. After a few hours on the phone with HP and them sending me a replacement printer that also wouldn't print, I found that there is a "vent" on the printer cartridges that if clogged, will cause that color not to print. The vent is on the top of the cartridge, facing up when installed into the printer. The vent looks like a "T". Unfortunately, the packaging that HP uses on these cartridges sometimes causes glue to clogged the vent. Take a sharp nail or straight pin, and clean out the vent. Hope this is successful for you.

Black will not print

Do not open the HP 564XL cartridge until you are ready to use it
Do not touch the electrical contacts of the cartridge
To obtain best print reliability store the box with the bottom facing down
Use the HP 564XL ink up within 6 months after opening to obtain the best print quality
Refer to your users manual provided with your printer for information on how to open and install the cartridge
Store out of direct light, in a stable environment. Large temperature changes may affect the cartridge

I would go to HP and update the C6280 printers drivers. It sounds like there is an issue with the driver. It there is not an update then I would uninstall the driver and reinstall.

I have an HP Photosmart 2575 all-in-one printer, and my black is not working I just replaced it with a new cartridge and it still doesn't print the black.

The new ink-cartridge probably is OK.

So, start the HP Printing Assistant Software, and run the "Print-Head-Cleaning" utility, to run a few cycles. Hopefully, it will unclog the ink-jets that _should_ be spraying ink onto the paper.

and if the NV Ram is reset this will reset the page count,

I dont know how to find this or reset page count but if anyone knows i would like to do this on my hp printer

I have HP c309a printer. My every day printing seems to be using the photo black cartridge instead of the 564XL which I believe is meant for everyday printing. How can I make 564XL the default cartridge...

Easiest way possible? Take out the photo cartridge and put a piece of scotch tape on the ink part. That's what I do. But if you want to do it on your computer, then you will need to browse through your print settings. You can do this in Start Menu > Printers and Faxes, then right click on the printer and select Printing Preferences
