hp3520 not printing black

My printer will not print black. I look and notice it does indicate that there are still black in the cartridge. Still I went and got a new black ink cartridge and it printed the first page in black, but then stop printing in black again. Other colors print, just not the black.

Hi cheepazoid,

 

 I would start by checking all ink levels and replacing any low cartridges.  I am linking the user's guide for your printer that also contains troubleshooting information.  Click Here  I suggest that you click on Maintenance in the guide and follow the steps for the options Manually clean the ink cartridges and Automatically clean the cartridges up to 3 times. 

 

Let me know how it goes.

Good Luck !

Hi ricktrumpf

 

I understand the black isn't printing

 

Here is a url you could try to resolve the issue for the black not printing.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c03955488&tmp_task=solveCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&la...

 

I would recommend to call HP Tech Support for further assistance to see what other options
are available for you since the printer is only 2 months old if the document doesn't resolve the issue. Provide the document number c03955488 for troubleshooting Printer Does Not Print Black Ink or Color Ink, or Prints Blank Pages.
