hp photosmart 6515 wont print black

Photosmart 6515 Printer worked great until black ink started running out.  Bought a new cartridge but went out of town for two weeks.  Upon return I installed new cartridge.  Alignment fails and no back print.  Color is fine.  Have tried several cleanings and alignments. Have tried a second cartridge. Sometimes I can see very faint printing. Printer is one month out of warranty

Sounds like you are having issues printing black after replacing your cartridges. Here is a document on a printer with a similar ink delivery system on how you can sometimes resolve these issues :


I would also recommend that you take perform the cartridge cleaning several times (up to three). 


Let me know if this helps!
