I have an HP 3521 that I've tried two brand new 564XL black ink cartridges in and neither will print black text. If I print a photo the black ink works. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the driver, updated to the latest firmware, unplugged from the wall and reset the factory settings. I've also done multiple print head cleanings and alignments. Black ink level shows it's good. Is there anything else that can be done, or is this garbage? Thanks.

Sorry for the delay getting back to you. Even though it's out of warranty I'd advise calling phone support as you may require a replacement. Can you please let me know how you get on?
