HP Photosmart 5525 not printing black ink

HP Photosmart 5525
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My HP Photosmart 5525 is not printing any black ink. I have already replaced the black cartridge with a genuine brand-new cartridge (correctly installed with the vent clear) and used the built-in clean printhead, clean ink smear, and align printer tools. The other colors are printing and the estimated ink level correctly shows the black cartridge as full.
