Black ink cartridge is not working

HP Recommended
HP Deskjet 3700 all-in-one Series

Hi, My black ink cartridge is not working at all. I do not get any error messages, the doc will print, but black does not show. I have clean the bottom and front of the cartridge carefully in case there was a blockage or tac on there, this made no difference. I can't get the virtual assistant to help me correctly. What can I try next please? I just want to try a new cartridge, but I am on the printing plan. Thanks!

I understand that black in the cartridge is not working.

 

Please let us know if you are using HP genuine ink cartridges.

 

Please refer to the following link to troubleshoot the cartridge issue.

 

If the issue still persists, you have to replace the black ink cartridge.

@Praveen196 Thanks for the welcome and your response!

 

Yes, I am using genuine HP cartridges, I am on the HP Instant Ink programme, so only use the cartridges they supply. This black cartridge has never worked since I replaced my old one, I have tried various things to try to correct this, nothing works so I can only assume it is faulty. I would like HP to send me a replacement, but can't find how/where to submit this request! The chat bot did not understand and conveniently didn't recognise my product details.

 

I don't feel that I should buy a new one, but can't wait much longer for a replacement to be automatically sent. Any help/guidance on how to ask HP to send me a replacement would be great!

 

Thanks!

Unfortunately, I have not received a private message from yourself or any of your HP colleagues. I've checked several times using the link provided and logging in and out of my messages. Please can you send the information on the details you required, so that I can get this ongoing and frustrating issue resolved.
