    I have a sort of similar problem. After I replaced a refilled original black cartridge it first printed nothing black for a while. Then it printed only wavy lines and contours of text. After a while it got slightly better, but when the printer auto cleaned its heads. It stopped printing black again. I have used refilled cartridges without any problems before.

Remove the print head, inks come out first. then lift the arm on the right of the head , it lifts out , never touch the gold pads on the back be very carful of the bottom print head. don't let cotton or tissue clog or get in the very fine print head nozels. so dont rub hard be very gentle let the alcohol do its job. soak at least 5 min.
clean the head with alcohol, let it sit on a soaked clean cloth saturated with 96% isoprople. ink will flow out on to the cloth its
ok put fresh full inks back in and deep clean right away and all should be well

My J4680 only prints color, no black. Printer is


Your black cartridge is most definitely clogged. You can easily check that by removing the cartridge and press the print head on some tissue. If there is no mark, the print head on your black cartridge is clogged. Now, HP has some kind of software head cleaning. It doesn't always work, but you can try. Here is a link to HP site, referring to your problem: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01361894&cc=bg&lc=en&dlc=en&product=3692888
Read carefully and follow the instructions.
If that doesn't solve your problem, you should buy a new black cartridge.
Also, bear in mind that with ink-jet printers, you need to print something at least once in 10-15 days, otherwise the print head will again get clogged and you will be facing the same issue over and over again. If you do not print on a regular basis, make some kind of test page, that contains black, yellow, magenta and cyan. Print that page once in 2 weeks and your printer will always work fine.

Black ink will not print on Photosmart C6150; Ink


I'd do the reboot of the printer.Turn it off,unplug for 60 seconds,plug it back in,turn it back on and see if the black will work.After plugging back in it should clean the print head and then you can do a test page to make sure.

Black and white not printing correctly, color is fine


If you are not using Epson ink, your printer will do this. Epson printers hate knock-off ink. Always use Epson ink if you want to keep your printer working properly. To solve the problem you are having, try cleaning the ink tubes. Make sure you re-install them properly. Hope this helps. Charlene
