    I have the same "bad pentagon" on my HP 610. I replaced the Black cartridge first, that didn't work. Then ordered and replaced the Black printhead and that didn't work either. Any other help would be appreciated.

Officejet d135 says bad black printhead- Replace the pentagon --


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.

I'm not sure you specified the correct printer. The 7110 printhead is not pentagonal. Is your printer the 7110 all-in-one?
