Not printing Black

HP Photosmart 6520
macOS 10.14 Mojave

I have an HP Photosmart 6520 and Black is not printing at all. I've replaced the cartridge, cleaned the heads and aligned them multiple times. Anyone have a fix for this or is it time to replace the printer?

Please try the clean cartridge/ printhead for three times


On the printer control panel,
1> touch Settings, then
2> touch Tools, then
3> touch Clean Printhead


If issue still persist it's time to go for a new printer. The issue seems to be with printhead which is a fixed part in this printer hence printer replacement is what I'd suggest.
