My hp photosmart 5514 won't print. I put in new ink-black and color- and it goes through the motions, but the page is empty


I just had this exact problem on my HP 5514. Black won't print after running out of black ink. New cartridge no good.
I tried everything-no good. I suspected the pinholes in the printhead were clogged with dried ink because I didn't change cartridge in time.
The fix that worked perfectly was when I hacksaw top off old black cartridge & removed all foam wicks so now I had a funnel(can see clear thru). I installed the cartridge & filled it with alcohol, printed page & did head clean; then printed few more pages. Problem cleared almost immediately. I then soaked up extra alcohol inside cartridge with paper towel. Removed modified cartridge & installed good one. I guess this could be done for colors as well. I don't know if this is a proper procedure, but it sure worked well for me.

Will the HP 2700 scan without an ink cartridge loaded? I am getting an error message about a problem with the black ink cartridge and it is overriding everything else. All I want to do is scan.


Black printer ink in HP Printer may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

The black ink on my HP Photosmart 3310 printer does not print. All the colour cartridges print with no problems.

Photo black ink runs out b4 black on HP Photosmart C6380 printer


The black ink cartridge is larger than the photo black cartridge and black is used in photos to make the darker colors. Black text takes much less ink per page.

6180 will not print black text


Are you using genuine or knock off inks?
Take out the blabk cartridge and knock in onto your hand while using a paper towel to absorb ink.
If ink comes out you have a communuication problen with the printer ink carriage or a defective cartridge.

HP 5510 will not print using black cartridge


  • Put a tiny drop of isopropyl alcohol, or bio ethanol on the opening of the printhead (remove cartridge, you will see the opening below the cartridge)
  • Put cartridge back
  • Clean print heads
  • It WILL work again!

Hp 6150 won't print clearly --new cartridges are in


Clean the print head if you suspect that the nozzles might be clogged. Cleaning the print head consumes ink, so perform print head cleaning only when necessary.

Hope this initial info/idea helps.
