First of all check out whether you have removed the blue tape from the base of the new black cartridge.if the tape is removed then there are some possibilities. clean the inter circuit of the printer and the circuit on the cartridge.its a brown dotted circuit you will have to clean it with tissue paper.then check out.if still the same problem.then see in your printer settings have you selected print only in colour mode.if its selected.then make it print in both colour and black mode.if you dont find the settings.just reinstall the printer driver again by deleting the old driver so all the settings will be get automatically set.
for drivers you can get it from
www.hp.com
------------
in many cases it has been see that internal circuit of printer when the black cartridge gets conneced gets short and faulty.if that is the case.the circuit needs to be replaced this can be done by local printer repair shop.the cost of internal circuit is $12.plus the repair men service charge.

Hp deskjet 3845 won't print in color


When you click on "Print" and the window comes up, click on "Preferences".

Click on the "Color" tab. There should be an option to print in color or grayscale. Select "Color".

Have you checked (Right click on printer name) "Printing Preferences", "Color"?

"Print in Grayscale" and "Black Print Cartridge Only" should be Unchecked.

Hope this gets it...
