Printer will not print black after changing cartridge

Printer Model: HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One Printer - C310a

After I changed the black cartridge, I can't print anymore black pages from my computer (prints out blank page)

 

and when I tried aligning the printer, it failed too

 

Please help!!!

I have had the same problem and I am sure that the print head needs replacement even though it is only 8 months old.  HP chat with Richard (chat # 14320233) was little help and he did not tell me how to get a replacement print head.

Re: Printer will not print black after changing cartridge

Hi!

 

Try this one first: manually clean the contact points of the printer.

.If this will not work. you need to contact Hp tech support to replace your printhead. Printhead can only be ordered via callcenter.

 

Hope this will work.... =)

Re: Printer will not print black after changing cartridge

Same problem here. I will try to clean the contacts, if it fails the best option for me it's to buy a new printer, because repair it is more expensive than buy a new one.

Re: Printer will not print black after changing cartridge

I'm having the same problem with my HP Photosmart 3210, it will not print in black, it's very faint but the color works fine and when I try to do an alignment it says: Alignment failed. Refer to device documentation for details.

Re: Printer will not print black after changing cartridge

I looked at several blogs on the HP site which concerned problems similar to mine.  I combined several approaches and now have a printer that works correctly.  I removed the print head and soaked it  for three 5-minute cycles in hot (~170 F) distilled water about 3/4 inch deep with continuous mild agitation.  The first soaking quickly turned the water black, the second ended with the water a dark grey color, but the third rinse was nearly clear.  The hot distilled water dissolved the dried ink in the small ink passages from the cartridges to the ink ejection part of the print head.  I then carefully dried the print head as per instructions, cleaned the electrical contacts on the printer, and placed the print head and the ink cartridges in the printer.  I turned off the printer, then unplugged it for one minute.  I the plugged it in and turned it on, allowing it to print an alignment sheet.  Because some water remained in the ink passageways, the sheet had some blank areas but a homemade test sheet which has small samples of many color dots and words in every Word color was then printed with very good results.  The printer has now worked perfectly for a week.

Re: Printer will not print black after changing cartridge

My printer is the Hp5440, The black cartrige is the HP 92 brand new. After automatic clean, the cartrige used a fair amount of ink and left the cartrige full of ink. Yet the test for auto-clean shows no black
