I think it is a software issue but HP told me that it is a hardware issue. I guess they want me to buy a new printer. I did, I bought an Epson.
There are way too many persons with the same issue but using different printers.

first of all: its a SHAME THE LACK OF A REAL HP SUPPORT FOR A
PROBLEM AFFECTING SO MANY PEOPLE!!!
Ok, this worked for me(until now) and i rly hope that can help other users too:
1- disconect the power cable from your printer
2- reconnect it and connect an usb/ethernet cable to your pc
2- open the printer and remove your black ink cartridge
3- after that, simply replace it with an old black ink cartridge - empty or not - and wait for the printer messaging recognition “old cartridge used before blablablabla” or something.
4- remove the old cartridge again and replace it for the new one or the latest in use.
5- Just test to print pages or docs again and watch the results:)
I hope it can be useful for you guys as it was for me \0/

PS: the printer i got is HP OFICCEJET PRO 6830*
My previous post was deleted... Heres another try:
1 - disconnet the power cable
2 - reconnect the power cable and connect an usb/ethernet cable to your PC.
3 - turn on the machine, and remove the black ink cartridge
4 - get an old cartridge used before (not the last one in use with the print problem) and install it.
5 - wait for the messaging “black ink cartridge used before whatever” and remove the old one from printer
6 - reinstall the new(or latest in use) black ink cartridge and try again to print test pages/docs
It worked for me until now*
