LOST CONTACT W BLACK LOCATION ON AN OFFICEJET 6500A+. 3 CARTRIDGES = NO DIFFERENCE

officejet 6500A+
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Exchanged black cartridge. System worked, only out of ink. 3 color cartridges ok. Only black will not respond to the system. Replaced w expensive new black HP 920XL: same problem! Cleaned contacts on cartridge & carriage: no change. I am stumped. Why would just replacing the ink cartridge result in this problem?

@HB3505, Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

Do you get any error for the black ink cartridge?

 

As you have used 2 black ink cartridges and the issue persists, I'm afraid this could be a hardware issue with the printer. Let us try these steps to resolve this issue:

 

 

Reset the printer

  1. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  2. Wait at least 60 seconds.
  3. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
  4. Turn ON the printer, if it does not automatically turn on.
  5. Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you proceed.

Note: HP recommends connecting the printer directly to a wall outlet rather than a surge protector or a power strip.
