Installed a new HP black ink cartridge; the officejet 8500 pro will not print any black print. The color ink works okay.


First print a self test page on the printer and check if you have black print on it or not.

To do that Go to your printer :-

Press Setup button -->Go to print report-->hit ok--> use arrow keys and choose the self test page.--> hit ok.

If you have the self test page fine then try to make a black copy from the printer.

Put a black font printout on the scanner glass facing downwards. Press copy black

Check if you have the black ink working.

If yess then there is some thing on the system you are doing wrong. May be the printer properties needs to be set or some settings needs to be checked.

If no then try to clean he ink cartridge and try to align the cartridge on the printer.

To align Do this

Press setup-->use arror keys to navigate to tools -->and choose the option align cartridge or align printer.

If you do not find the option in the tools option try looking for it in the print report...

On the computer Go to printer under control panel and right click on the printer and go to print prefernces --> go to the TAB called colors and under color options -->choose print in greyscale--> and under that choose the Black only option. --> hit apply and then hit ok.

Now try printing..!

Let me know if any of these steps works....

Installed a new black cartridge and it will not align. Returned it to store and installed a second black cartridge and it will not align. Old one will but is low on ink. News ones will not print any black.


1. Load letter or A4 unused plain white paper into the input tray.
2. Press Setup.
3. Press 6, then press 2.

This selects Tools and then selects Align Print Cartridge. The HP all-in-one prints a print cartridge alignment sheet and aligns the print cartridges. Recycle or discard the page.

Sorry to ask a dumb question but did you remove the protective tape on the cartridge when you installed it? If yes, then proceed to the following HP help page where the align cartridge error is outlined along with several solutions. Best of luck!

OfficeJet k60 Align Cartridge

1 Answer

My printer stood unused for about 8 months. Then


Remove all the cartridges from the printer and check for expiration date on the cartridges, if the cartridges are expired, you need to replace them with HP genuine, use of refilled one's cause many issues.The cartridge that is compatible with this printer is HP 14 black and HP 14 tricolor.
To align the printheads at any other time:
  1. Press Menu .
  2. Press 7 , then 3 . (For the HP Officejet D 125xi press 3 , then 3 again)A page prints to confirm printhead alignment.
