My printer says I have black ink, even though when printing it is very faded and barely legible. I have used all the cleaning tools and this has made no difference. I clearly need a new cartridge but there is no option to order one, as the printer says I have plenty.

Welcome to the HP Support Community
I understand you are facing a print quality issue with your HP ENVY 5540 All-In-One Printer. Not to worry I will help you to get a resolution to resolve the issue.
To assist better:
- Are you using genuine HP ink cartridges?
- Does the copy print out the same way?
- What's the application you are trying to print from?
- Have you tried printing from a different application or device?
While you respond to that, let's print a Print Quality Diagnostic page -Post the Print Quality Diagnostic page here so we can help you further.
You may also refer to this document with steps to fix the " Print Quality Issues" issue applicable to your printer - Print Quality Issues
Also, try updating the printer's firmware - HP Printers - Updating or Upgrading Printer Firmware
If the issue still persists, we would need some information related to your Instant Ink Subscription. This information cannot be shared on a public post.
