My 6520 printer will no longer print in black ink.

HP photosmart 6520 e-all-in-one printer

My printer will not print anything in black ink. I've changed out the cartridge (twice!), run the cleaning program on the  printer and now the print quality report shows horizontal stripes in the black ink report. HELP!

@chellebd

Welcome to the HP Support Community

 

I suggest you do a Hard Reset on the printer

 

(1) Turn the printer on, if it is not already on.

(2) Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you continue.

(3) With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.

(4) Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.

(5) Wait at least 60 seconds.

(6) Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.

NOTE: HP recommends connecting the printer power cord directly to the wall outlet.

(7) Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.

(8) Turn on the printer, if it does not automatically turn on.

 

The printer might go through a warm-up period. The printer lights might flash, and the carriage might move.

Wait until the warm-up period finishes and your printer is idle and silent before you proceed.

No error messages are displayed and no stripes print when what I am printing is in black font.

I tried the reboot of the printer and it did not make a difference.

The Missoing color picture is what prints when I run the test.
