Go into Printers, Properties, Printing Preferences, then Black Ink Only. If you make that the default, it will automatically print black ink with you click on the printer in the toolbar. If you want to print one document in color, click on File, Print, Properties, and set it for color for that one job only. The default of Black Ink should stay the same.

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.

These instructions are for Windows Vista users - I've never used XP to do this, but I'm sure it's similar.
Go to Control Panel/Printers and select the printer you want. Click "Select printing preferences" on the toolbar above. The options listed might be different for different printers (I haven't checked) but on my Dell printer I go to Advanced/More Options and under the "Complete-a-Print" section there is a checkbox labeled "Use color cartridge for all black printing." I imagine other printers have something similar. It comes out a dark grey/brown color.
Don't forget to uncheck it when you get more black ink!
