Re: Ink level full but printer will not print.

I have a HP Deskjet F2420 hooked up to a mac.


I have just changed both of the the cartridges and now it will only print in colors.


I have cleaned the printheads 3 times, and have tried every other thing I can think of - but nothing helps.


Can anyone in here please help?

The document here may help resolve black not printing on your Deskjet F2420.  Does black print at all on the diagnostic page in solution six? If not you might try blotting the black nozzles on a damp tissue.  A good cartridge would have a strong blot of black.
