Black ink not printing on HP Officejet 6500 Wireless All-in-One Printer

Printing was so light that I thought it didn't print at all. When I performed a printhead cleaning I got no black at all in the printout. I blew through the vent opening on the black cartridge to clear any clogs in the cartridge and the ink flowed out without blockage. I then performed a printhead alignment and again no black and I a got a message on the printer that the alignment failed.

Finally I used only black ink in a print job and the printout was blank.
