Hi Geoff,

I understand your Photosmart 6510 is printing more of a gray then a black ink, I'd like to help. Please begin with the steps in the following document; Printer Prints a Blank Page or Does Not Print Black or Color Ink for the HP Deskjet Ink Advantage an...
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. I only suggest doing this if the printer is out of warranty; How to fix a HP Printer, not printing black ink and missing colours
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.

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 printer is printing grey instead of black on my Mac. It was fine, but now I can't figure out what's wrong. Ink levels are good. I did accidentally get water in the AC adapter. Could that be it? After...


No, the water has nothing to do with it. Somewhere in a print dialog or perhaps in the printer driver, something changed to grey.

Try printing an ordinary black text document. Before you click "Print", look for "properties" or "Printer setup". Somewhere in there something got changed. Perhaps you can find a "default" button in a dialog box to restore the printer to factory settings.

MIGHT help (probably not) to shut down the Mac, power down the printer, and then start both up. Just an idea.
