HP 5150 Deskjet -- black printing abruptly stopped. Prints appear with color but no black. Switching black cartridges doesn't help. Clean print heads operation doesn't help. Switching computers...


There are very few things you can do, other than what you have aleady done.
I would recommend a decision on how much the unit cost and how long you have used the
printer vrs. what HP or a local authorized service center would charge to repair it.
If you have refilled ink cartridges, this is problem that can arise due to ink drying on the
print head as the black cartridge is use the most.

CLEAN INK PADS ,


The print head is integrated with the print cartridge itself. If your print quality is degraded, try searching on Google for a way to clean the print cartridge with alcohol. Or it might just be time to buy a new cartridge. In that case, do another search on Google and learn how you can earn money by sending in your old printer cartridges for recycling, instead of just throwing them away.

Slow and blank printing


sounds like clogged print heads. do a clean print heads, then a test page, and see how that goes. Like a sink that gets clogged, when it's not used, print heads need exercise, otherwise, they can get some gunk on them, and no more printing.
