Solved!

HP Deskjet 2549 does not want to use black cartridge

Samsung
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I changed my black cartridge and it doens't want to print any black, what so ever.

The colors are perfect, but I already used a serious amount of ink cleaning the cartridges to get the black, back in business...without result.

 

Tried the standard link and cleaned the area around the ink nozzles.

 

I browsed the forum, but I always ended up with the same tips, leading (in my case) to nothing...so far.

 

Cartridges are genuine.

 

Thx in advance for your help.

@Thierry3 Welcome to HP Community!

I recommend you try the copier as a stand-alone device without a computer and check if that works in color,:

  • If it doesn't work, this could be a hardware issue,
  • however, if the copier works and yet, the print out from the computer doesn't work in color, you can try the below steps:
  • Press "Windows key" + "r" to get the "Run" window.
  • Type "services.msc" to get Services - Go to "Print spooler" - Right-click and "Stop" the service.
  • Now again open "Run" - Type "spool" and ok - Go to PRINTERS folder - delete everything in that folder.
  • Go to services again - Start the print spooler.
  • Now check for issue resolution.
  • If the issue persists, also try clean installing the printer drivers. Here are the steps:
  • First, unplug the USB cable from the printer if present. 
  • Go to Control panel - Programs and feature - Select all the HP printer entries and uninstall them.
  • Now go to Control panel - Devices and printer - Select all the printer entries and remove the device.
  • Press the "windows key" + "r" to get the "Run" window open - Type "printui.exe /s" (There is a space between .exe & /) and press enter.
  • Under print server properties, go to drivers - remove any entry there as well.
  • Again, go to the Run window, type - "c:/programdata" - Go to the Hewlett Packard folder, remove any printer related folders & files.
  • Restart your computer.

Then, use this link to access the HP website, find the drivers compatible with your windows and install it: CLICK HERE
