Hi It sounds like a good chance the black has blocked it does not take much just things like leaving the cartridge out for a bit or it can also take a bit to get a new cartridge working. I would recommend you try to do a head clean it uses a lot of ink doing this but sometimes there is no choice. In settings you should be able to do only black option. Regards Craig

This past Saturday we just had a similiar problem on our church HP printer. Different number than yours, but most likely the same solution. It jammed when the last person used it, so they removed the crinkled paper. Or so they thought - there was a piece maybe 1-1/2" triangular shape stuck on top. I liked to never found it, I looked even with a flashlight 4 times before I caught just a hint of white way up there. If that is not it, there could be a door you have not opened. Most of them open top, back, front. Ours also opens on the side. The back opens in two places. Occasionally there can be a piece of paper you can only see from one door.

I can only say that the preamble is with the ink cartridge. Just happens that red is one of the first to get clogged. Happened to me on the 95 ink cartridge. If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/alex_22751bbefa74c3d0

If you are running Windows 7 I believe it has been disabled. There are some work arounds but I'm not sure.
