HP 3510 not printing black ink

HP 3510
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

My HP 3510 will no longer print black ink. I have gone through the troubleshooting guide, and called the 1-800 number but they are asking for me to pay for support. Even new ink cartriages do not work.Any solutions?

I soaked the printer heads in boiled water for 20 seconds and dried them on a paper towels, per a youtube video. Took me days just to find a solution. Works perfectly now. Simple.

HP has been supplying clogged black ink cartrages. If "doesn't print black" , hold the cartrage  under hot tap water until the black ink smudges emerge. Then print.

I did the same thing, except with warm, not boiling water, and it worked for me too. Sometimes the simplest suggestions are far better than all the complicated ones.
