My HP Officejet 6500 Wireless printer won't print in black when trying to print from Microsoft Office Word and Microsoft Office Excel or PDF. The ink cartridge is new. I have turned the printer off and...


I also have the OfficeJet 6500 and had the same problem. The black text was printing using a mix of colored inks instead of the black ink, resulting in a grey, fuzzy text. I finally found a solution. In each application under Page Setup, there is an option called "Format for". Mine had been set to "Any Printer". I changed that to "Officejet 6500 E709n [830E4A]" and now it prints the black just fine. I have a Mac running 10.4.11. Hope this helps.

Why does my new HP Officejet 6500 power light keep flashing about every 5 seconds ????


I thought I had a problem, but it is not a problem. The machine power light flashes when it has not been used in a while and kinda goes to sleep until you start to use it. That way it saves on power. Thanks any way. But before I would pay for help, I would throw the machine away. !!!
