Re: Black ink not working.



Are you using an HP genuine ink cartridge?


Have you tried checking with a different ink cartridge?


Replace any empty, low or faulty ink cartridges on the printer. Also, try cleaning the ink cartridge contacts and check if it helps.


Print a Print Quality Diagnostic Report and evaluate the results.

Follow these steps to print a test page.

  1. Load plain white U.S. letter or A4 size paper in the tray.

  2. From the control panel home screen, touch the Right Arrow (), and then touch the Setup icon ().

  3. Touch Tools, and then touch Print Quality Report. A Print Quality Diagnostic Report prints.
