SOURCE: Printing black
Sounds very science fiction. The easiest thing to do is to uninstall the printer(+drivers), and reinstall. Or at least it's the easiest thing for me to think of ... ;] Do you get this only with text, or also with images?

try to heat up the printhead of the cartridge on hot water about 90degre celsius and clean the head whit a clean soft paper (toilet paper is great and cheap) and make a clean nozle on the printer software.

I had the same problem, even when I only selected grayscale printing, my printer would use all 3 colors to make black, and my black cartridge would never get used. Try this:
On printing preferences change your Media Type to Transparency.
This should solve the problem and stop robbing your color tanks when you just want black

adjust print heads... in the printer attributes by right clicking the printer the attributes should show a tool window the do this
then check if you have ink...
also check to see if you have your print set to a heaver weight paper. this could make the paper move while its printing

1. Disconnect the power cord and USB from the printer and press and hold the power button down for 30 secs without anything connected to the printer. 2. Now connect the power cord only and turn it ON, make sure that the printer has sufficient ink in the cartridges, you may clean them and inside the printer with a lint free cloth. The printer will take some time to initialise. 3. Now we will reset the printer so follow the steps below. A. - Press and Hold the ?Print Photos? & ?Red Eye Removal? buttons. Release both buttons. Display should say ?Enter Special Key Combo? B. - Press and release in sequence ?Red Eye Removal?, ?Print Photos?, ?Red Eye Removal? 1. Press and release the right arrow button until the display says ?System Configuration Menu?. 2. Press and release the ?OK? button. 3. Display should say ?Support?. Use the Right arrow Key to look for "Reset Menu". 4. Press and release the ?OK? button. 5. Press the right arrow key to look for "Semi-Full Reset", press 'OK' 6. The printer will go off and will power on by itself, else wait for 20 seconds and power on the printer. Also check if Operating system is Windows XP, then Service Pack should be 2 or 3. Try reinstalling the main s/w driver and also upgrade the firmware from http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3560280
