HP Photosmart 5510 Not Printing

HP Recommended
Asus X512D
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

OK...I posted on here about my HP Photosmart 5510 before.  Summary:  I tried everything I could think of to make my Windows Laptop Print.  It goes through the motions, acts like it is printing something out, but no ink comes out.  I tried printing something directly from the printer, but again, it didn't print!

Yesterday, I needed to print off some documents from my e-mail.  I didn't feel like grabbing my laptop, so I tried printing from my phone.  It came out very light, but at least it printed!  To make sure it wasn't a fluke, I printed off a document my husband sent me that he wanted me to edit.  It printed too!  I have a LG G5.

Yes, that falls under the "Everything I could think of" category.  I spent hours cleaning the printhead and pretty much whole ink cartridges.  Colour ink works fine, black ink doesn't.  However, I don't understand why it was able to print from my phone, but not my laptop.

The black printhead is most likely clogged, you can try cleaning it manually.

Youtube has many vids on this subject.
