the printer no longer prints out text, and printer and copier produce only blank pages. I followed all the normal steps, ink is full, turned off and on, etc. BUT when i test the color and other tests, lovely color pages are produced, so printer is in contact with computer, and color is produced---but not normal text.

Welcome to the HP Forums!
I see that your printer is experiencing a problem with printing blank sheets. I would be happy to help you!
When you make a black and white copy from the 6500, do blank sheets print out?
