hi there is a simple solution to your problem take out the print head place just the jets( where the ink comes out) in warm water for a few seconds while it is in the water use a syringe over each breathe hole at the top of the print head (one at a time) and lightly push air into the head. this process clears any ink clog and frees up the print head and allows it to print propely

I had the same problem. Ended up replacing the black/yellow "printhead" and that corrected the problem.

SOURCE: hp psc 750 won't print with new color ink cartridge

To solve the printing problem..


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.


Hope this help. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

SOURCE: new ink cartridge won't print

Do you know for sure the original cartridge was empty? Take a clean pencil with eraser, and gently "erase" the electrical contacts on the cartridge and the printer where the 2 connect. See if that helps. If it is USB, unplug it and plug it back in. You might try to uninstall and reinstall the driver for the printer.

My HP Photosmart 6510 printer is producing grey text not the black text I require, I am using it with an I-MAC desk top. How do I get it to print in black?


Hi Geoff,

If you complete, or have already completed all of the steps in the document above and the issue continues, my own personal recommendation, not one of HPs, is to use the solution offered in the following video.

Based on the comments, it looks like this may help

I tried most of the suggestions in this thread, but stopped short of disassembling the print head. Nothing worked until I saw the video referenced in Sunshyn2005's message. That did work, but not on my first try. For the second attempt, I left the wet paper towels in place for a couple of hours to really soak the print heads. That did the trick.
So, thank you Sunshyn2005, for pointing me to the solution. -Source
Although the printer might be out of warranty, if the issue persists, HP may be able to offer you something. Maybe they can offer you a discount on an alternate model. If you are in Canada or US call 800 474 6836, or you can Contact HP Worldwide.

If this resolves the issue, please let me know so we can help others who may be experiencing the same issue.

I hope this helps,
I work on behalf of HP.

Our HP 6510 printer indicates that the head alignment is incorrect..and it won't print anything black..yes, we just replaced the ink! What can we do?


This may indicate one of the cartridges is not correctly seated, try checking that the ink cartridges are correctly seated and it may be a good idea to use original ink rather than third party (not that i am saying you are using none HP ink) and also when placing ink in printer that you have not handled the chip on the cartridge itself.

Hp Photosmart 6510 Black ink will not print


It is a known defect among many PhotoSmart printers, including the 6510. The black ink was programmed to fail at between 50 to 60 black print cartridges. One HP whistleblower said a bug in this programmed failure causes the black ink to suddenly stop printing after 5 to 6 black ink changes instead. When you call in, they offer to sell you a new printer! The service guy I spoke with was extremely nervous. I refused to buy a new printer, given I had put less than a ream of paper through mine. I was on hold for about 10 minutes, then told there was no supervisor, but given an email address to write to. Three weeks later, still no response. Yes, a class action lawsuit needs to happen, not just for the printer malfunction, but for the hours I soent trying to fix it, and new cartridges I bought, thinking I had bad ones.

My photosmart 6510 wont print black ink


Welcome to the club mate :) Throw it out and stop buying new cartridges before you pay double the price of the printer in cartridges... This is a known problem, without any fix. Should I congratulate you on buying a nice disposable printer?

Error code 0xc19a0023


I went crazy trying to fix my HP D7560, days and days of print ink failure, unable to align cartridges, until to clean print heads. My symptom is that the black ink started to print only in a light gray. I tried everything from running Tools, changing to new cartridges, even buying a new print head (which was not genuine HP, they don't make them anymore, and the new print head would'n't complete in diagnostics without error). I love this printer and didn't want to part with it. So I searched for days and tried many solutions without success. Until I found this one last solution - it my last ditch effort. The solution is to get a bowl of very hot water (not boiling), remove the print head from the printer and place the print head directly in the hot water (sounds risky! but I did it). I watched as the bowl filled with black ink. The instructions said to let it sit for 5-10 minutes, but I couldnt' believe the amount of ink that poured out of the print head. So, I kept replacing the water and shaking the print head carefully in the water to loosen the trapped ink. I repeated this step (replacing water) until it was no longer producing black cloud of ink and water was fairly clear. I carefully dried the print head with a paper towel, let sit for approx 5 minutes to dry some more, shook it vigorously a few times to shake out any water, and then lastly hit it with a blast of compressed air to ensure all water droplets were gone. I put the print head back in, re-inserted the cartridges and the printer ran through diagnostics automatically - aligning cartridges and printing a test page - it was BEAUTIFUL!!!! Until I tried this, nothing worked. I'm hoping this solution will help others. Good luck.

If the color cartridge doesn't print the color bars on the alignment page (either, redish pink, yellow or blue) then the alignment process will not finish. Same for the black. If the black cartridge is printing ok, then replace the color cartridge and try this again...
