Hp inkjet 6500a won’t print black

HP Officejet 6500APlus
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

Printer continued to send “ printer low on ink” messages even when new cartridge was installed. Eventually stopped printing black. Colors still worked. Replaced printhead and installed new HP black ink cartridge. Still won’t print black.
