SOURCE: black is not printing

I think that you are right about the printhead running out of ink. Try running 1 or 2 test pages and see if the problem goes away

SOURCE: black ink does not print

i had the same problem. black stopped printing. i always used OFFICIAL HP cardridges, so this problem is not exclusive for refilled cardridges.

This solution (offered here) worked for me:
Reset the system by holding down the OK, Cancel, Black, and Color buttons down at the same time and turn the 3310 off. Keep holding the buttons down until the printer shuts off and the turn it back on. You will have to turn the printer off twice and then it will recalibrate. Make sure you have new cartiges in the printer so that it can reset.

I wanted to stress that you should make sure that:
1) you keep the the buttons down untill it shuts off;
2) on restart you get a notification of service;
3) to turn it off again after service before you turn it on for actual use.

HP Photosmart Plus B209a Black Ink Not Printing


Hi,

You can try to put the printhead on hot water for some hours. Before you put the printhead back in printer you must dry it with towels to prevent short circuit and damage the printhead.

I hope to be usefull !

Why won't my printer print black with all new cartridges?


Remove all inks, then the printhead & sit the printhead on a soft cloth soaked in warm water - let it sit for a few minutes then reinstall, close lid then make the machine ask for the inks once the inks have then been installed it should prime the machine. If this does not work try it again & if that fails then your printhead probably needs to be replaced.

HP 6940 won't print black-new cartridge installed-prints color but no black


In all likelihood your print head has become clogged at the black ink outlet. Be aware that printheads can BURN OUT if you keep trying to print and there's insufficient ink reaching the printhead. The ink flow is relied upon to prevent overheating of the tiny resistors at the printhead. Best bet is to remove the cartridges from the printhead and then remove the printhead and try to clean it in warm water. You will find many youtube videos on suggestions for cleaning the printheads on HP printers. Do a google search for your model. If all else fails you can order replacement printheads for the part that has failed. They are not cheap so price compare. Oftentimes they will cost nearly as much as a new printer!

I have an HP Photosmart C3180 printer color ink issue. Instead of printing yellow its printing pink. I've cleaned the head multiple times and the ink cartridge is brand new. Please advise. Thanks!


If what you're saying is still the result after cleaning everything up, there must already be something wrong with the printhead because the printheads are the one's that are responsible for the mixture of the ink cartridges.
Try calling HP Tech Support. They might still be able to replace the printheads for you.

Replaced empty black ink cartridge, wont print black ink even after cleaning and aligning the printheads


The head of your printer cartrige (black) are not detected by the printer because it was damage and need to be replace. So that no more black ink could print anyway.
