Recently, I replaced a HP black cartridge on a Photosmart C6180. Almost from the beginning, the black print quality began to deteriorate to the point that it became unreadable. I followed the instructions for cleaning the printheads (over and over again) and ultimately worked my way through a half ream of paper and the ink in the remaining five cartridges. I still have a printer that refuses to print black ink; however, unlike other HP printers that I have, this one seems to have integral printheads. How do you recommend that I restore flow to the black printhead or will I have to replace the printhead and, if so, how?

The C6180 printhead is not replaceable. If your unit is still under warranty I suggest you Contact HP. If the unit is out of warranty are there any error messages or is it just not printing black but without error messages?
