Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Printer started printing blank pages (all colors) no error msg. Cartrages are not totally empty some liquid when shake. I replced cartridges anyway. Still prints blank (all colors). Performed printer maintenace (clean printhead, align, smear) more than 20x colors finally came however black is still missing. Tried to print 30 page report on black only setting, got 30 blank pages.

@WFP, Welcome to the HP Support Community!


I understand the printer is not printing in black. I appreciate your efforts in trying to resolve this issue by performing the necessary troubleshooting steps.


If you have already tried the steps mentioned in this document - Black Ink Not Printing, Other Print Quality Issues, and the issue persist, this could be a hardware issue either with the black ink cartridge or the printer.


Please reach out to the HP Technical Support team in your region regarding the replacement options 

You may create a case on the website to obtain a case number if required. Kindly watch this video to know how.


Keep me posted for any other assistance.
