I have an HP photosmart B110a printer and the black ink cartridge will not print. I've tried replacing it, switching off and on etc but can't get it to work. This looks like a common problem from what I can see on forums. I'm very fed up with this problem. Can anyone help?

If the printer is ouf of warranty it might be worth soaking the printhead.....
Can I ask do you switch off at the power button when not in use (this ensures the printer caps the printhead properly)

Did you get any improvement at all after soaking the printhead? Have you checked the vent area on the cartridge to see if it's clogged?
- If the vent is clogged, use a straight pin to gently remove excess adhesive from the vent.Figure 11: Clean the clogged vent with a pin1 - Clogged vent2 - With a straight pin, gently remove excess adhesive from the vent3 - Unclogged vent
