No Black print

Two things, either you need a new printhead, QY6-0064-000 around $40.00, or you will need a new purge assembly, if you do a cleaning without the black cartridge, and the ink on the little pad inside the printhead goes away, then you just need a printhead.

HP L7590 black ink printing poorly even with new HP cartridge

I have had the same problem It is the print head not the cartridge If your printer is still under warranty have the printhead(s) replaced if not Open the unit where the print heads are and hold the OK button for 5 seconds. The Print head carriage will move to the left

Carefully remove the KY (Black & Yellow) Print head with a cotton swab and alcohol clean the contacts and replace the printhead. If this does not work remove the printhead and then with a spray bottle spray the nozzle area on the bottom (DO NOT TOUCH THE NOZZLES AS THEY WILL BE DESTROYED) HP techs have told me this will void any warranty so act accordingly I use a printhead cleaning solution available from most any online ink supplier

Replace the printhead after it has dried out (less than a minute). The printer will then go through an alignment cycle and should print I had to do this several times before the print head performed as it should

Printhead problem (black/yellow) on HP L7780

When you removed the paper it's possible your damaged it and that's why the message is not going away. Did you try to put the cartridge back in to make sure it had not come out of position and just remove the power cord for a minute then plugging it back it.

Here are the steps to make sure you properly change the cartridges and the heads...

Install the ink cartridges and printheads Step one: Install the ink cartridges All four ink cartridges must be correctly installed for the HP All-in-One to work. Follow the steps below to Install cartridges:
  1. Open the ink cartridge cover.
  2. Remove each ink cartridge from its package.
  3. Align each ink cartridge with its color-coded slot and then insert the ink cartridge into the slot. To ensure proper contact, press down firmly on the cartridges until they snap into place.
  4. Close the ink cartridge cover.
Figure 1: Installing cartridges c00841893.gif 1 - Open the ink cartridge cover. 2 - Remove the ink cartridges from the packages. 3 - Install the ink cartridges. 4 - Close the ink cartridge cover. Step two: Install the printheads Follow the steps below to install the printheads.
  1. Open the top cover of the printer. Figure 2: Open the top cover c00848391.gif
  2. If the carriage does not move to the left automatically, press and hold the Resume button (c00847980.gif ) for three seconds. Wait for the carriage to stop moving.

  4. Lift the printhead latch. Figure 4: Lift the printhead latch c00848393.gif

  6. Remove the new printhead from its package, and then remove its orange protective caps. CAUTION: Do not shake printheads after the caps are removed. Figure 6: Remove the printhead from its packaging, then remove the orange caps from the printhead c00847984.gif

  1. Press the Setup button on the control panel Setup and the number 6 on the keypad or scroll to Tools .

Well, here is the proper way of fixing or troubleshooting that paper jam error in your printer

Open the printer access door and remove both of the ink cartridge, then remove also the printhead, after that close the printer access door, without those parts. Then it will show a message in the printer screen, "Printhead is missing or has come loose" or "Printhead Not Detected" Install the printhead, just the printhead without the ink cartridges. After that close the printer access door. Then it will show you a message"Ink cartridges is not installed,install ink cartridges". then open again the printer access door, then install the black ink cartridge without the color ink cartridge. then close the printer access door, then message must be " Color ink cartridge is not installed, install color ink cartridge" then install the color ink cartridge." the message must be,"New printhead is detected calibration require, load paper and press start"

Thats the way of overiding the paper jam error message of your kodak all in one printer
hope this will help you guys
