I was having the same problem. Brand new ink, nothing wrong with the print head etc.Word, PDFs wouldn't print black. I printed an Excel document and for some reason that fixed it.

Your print head is separated from your cartridge. I think that your print head is clogged, and that is why you can't print even with a new cartridge. The cartridge in your case is just a tank with ink, the print head is inside the printer.

You can do a software cleaning to unclog the print head.

  1. Click "Start", then "All Programs", then click on HP and then click on "HP Solution Center"
  2. Click on "Settings"
  3. Click on "Print Settings"
  4. Click "Printer Toolbox"
On the "Device Services" tab, click Clean the Print Cartridges and then follow the onscreen instructions. There are three levels of cleaning available, depending on how long you haven't print.

When the printer is done, it should print a test page. If everything seems ok, just print. If not, you will need to repeat the procedure.
You should also know that software cleaning uses a lot of ink.

Hope that will help solve your problem!

Printing is blank but I have new ink cartrigde in


The print-head stucks (FIXYA would '****' the preceding word, if I left out the 't') ink from the ink-cartridge, and sprays the ink onto the paper, when the print-head is *NOT* "clogged".

Run a "print-head-cleaning" cycle to "unclog" the print-head.

are you using only that size paper when printing. if there's another size underneath, then you're going to see some slippage.
