HP DskJet 5150 will not print black

I have a HP deskjet 5150 which doesn't seem to want to print black charaters, ie when I print a test page only the colour characters print. I have tried changing the ink cartridge and it even shows as full - i have also ensured that the tape on the cartridge has been removed.

HP 5150 Deskjet -- black printing abruptly stopped. Prints appear with color but no black. Switching black cartridges doesn't help. Clean print heads operation doesn't help. Switching computers...

There are very few things you can do, other than what you have aleady done.
I would recommend a decision on how much the unit cost and how long you have used the
printer vrs. what HP or a local authorized service center would charge to repair it.
If you have refilled ink cartridges, this is problem that can arise due to ink drying on the
print head as the black cartridge is use the most.

Hp deskjet 5150 just replaced both

I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

HP Deskjet 5150 print is too small

Printers try to fit web pages on a single sheet of paper. If you configure the printer, in the print dialog, not to shrink images and text to fit the paper, it will print on multiple sheets of paper, but the correct size for the images and text.

In a Word document, it depends on what font size you have selected. Most people would rather have the web page print on a single sheet, with smaller images and text than were on the monitor; than tape together multiple sheets for 100% size printout.

My hp deskjet 5150 will not stop printing

If you are using Windows XP

1. Click start then run then type in cmd then click ok.

After that in the lower right corner of your screen you should see a printer icon. Delete the queueu

If that still does not work Unplug the power from the printer then wait for 5 mins then restart your computer and turn it back on.

Slow and blank printing

sounds like clogged print heads. do a clean print heads, then a test page, and see how that goes. Like a sink that gets clogged, when it's not used, print heads need exercise, otherwise, they can get some gunk on them, and no more printing.
