Printer is printing blank pages with new ink cartridges...I just replaced the printer head

I just replaced the printer head after that failed.  The printer went through the alignment process and all was well until about 5 pages of print jobs.  Now, the printer is printing the pages, but they are blank.  Despite the black ink catridge being relatively new, I put a new one in and it still isn't printing out ink.  I have a Officejet 6500 Wireless.

Spoiler
Download and run the HP Print Diagnostic Utility and see if that helps troubleshoot the problem.

I would suggest you soak the printhead as described in this post.

Hi,

 

If your printer prints blank pages due to spooler you could fix it easily.

 

Most of the spooling problems are caused due to malfunctioned printer driver.

 

Reinstallation of the printer driver may fix this.

 

Data errors in the system also create spooling problem so you also need to remove such errors.

 

You could get a plenty software programs to repair printer spooler.

 

PC Health Advisor is a program which is used to repair printer spooler problem.

I just replaced my blank ink cartridge on my HP Officejet 6500 wireless printer and when I go to print it will not print black ink.  Other colors are working.

Re: Printer is printing blank pages with new ink cartridges...I just replaced the printer head

I have been fighting my 6500 wireless for 4 days.  Printed only blank pages.  Reinstalled software, replaced ink, called a tech - he said buy a new printer head.  Could never reach HP.  I gave up and looked at new printers.  Saw your post about soaking the printer head.  It worked.  You are the best.  Thanks
