    My Black Ink has stopped working too. I believe it happened when i used a refill cartridge (original cartridge but refilled up by local ink company). As it did not work i replaced it with a new one but printer does not print out black now. All other colors print but not black.

    I have the same printer HP Photosmart 8250 and same problem: I have been running some test pages, I clean the print-heads several times and still no Black. I even had to buy another set of cartridges due to all the ink I waste in the tests.
    I really want to throw it through the window.

I have a 8250 Photosmart printer , it was working fine until 3 days ago, noticed more reddish black where there should be black. Cartridges showing good, waht could be my problem?


Sometimes the cartridge will show "good" when they actually need to be replaced. Try printing a test page, cleaning the ink nozzles, and if the problem persists, replace the ink cartridges.

My HP Photosmart 8250 Inkjet printer is not printing black ink. If I let it sit for a while and only print 1 copy it will print a pretty good copy. Additional copies are almost blank but will have color...


try to reinstall the printer driver software. you can download the latest printer driver software from yout printer manufacturer's web site then restart the computer and printer.

My HP Photosmart 8250 is not printing any black ink even when the cartridge is full.


If this is happening after the cartridge was just replaced then make sure you do not have any flags setup in the color settings page in printer preferences that is not letting it use the black ink cartridge. eg. gray scale using color only etc.

Try the Clean cartridge function in the service menu in printer preferences and see if the test page comes ok.

Use of 852 and 855 cartridge in hp 6210 officejet printer


This quite often happens with CLONE cartridges and happens very infrequent with original cartridges.

The cause is the ink level chip used in clones is quite often a very cheap chinese copy and very prone to failure or misalignment

Either way take them back and get them changed is my advice

Ink problem


I know this sounds silly but did you pull the blue tape off of the printer cartridge before you installed it? If you did, try removing it and installing it again. Maybe it was not aligned right. Also, there is a way in the HP printer software to instruct it that you installed a new cartridge - try that too.
