Sorry to hear that you are facing this issue.

 

For a start, you can try to re-install the Printhead and also the Supplies and see if the problem goes away.

 

Please refer to the video below:

If the problem persists after checking the Printhead and Supplies, please contact you local HP support to request for a replacement printhead.

If black starts to print and then fades, the ink supply seems to be blocked or print head is not getting a continuous ink from the ink cartridges.

1. Check the black ink cartridge - if empty / within warranty

2. Check the print Head - if still within usage and warranty period - or it might have failed

3. try to perform Print head cleaning ( manually ) from the Printers Ink Menu > clean print head.

4. Check for any overfilled / dirty Service station ( on the right side) this block the print head nozzels.

5. Clean the print head nozzel part with a soft damp cloth gently to clear of any ink blockages.

 

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using the HP forum.

Error/Issue : Black ink won't print

Problem Description: seems K Printhead nozzels are not working proper.

The possible cause could be: K Print head issue / out of warranty Printhead is in use.

Corrective Action: print a "Diagnostic Print" page that will help to find which printhead is not printing proper.
Printing the Diagnostic Print : In the Service Utilities submenu, scroll to “Diagnostic Print” and press OK.
: You will be given three options. Use the Arrow keys to make the selection and press the OK key to start printing the required Diagnostic Print

Perform clean printhead > align PH and color calibration ( IN THE SAME SEQUENCE ) , these activities help to make it ok, even if same issue and if PH is out of warranty then replace it to check.
