HP Envy 5010 - No Black INK when printing

HP Recommended
HP Envy 5010
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi everyone.

So this printer has been used maybe 5 times since purchasing it. Steadily HP has been charging me for "instant ink".
New cartridge and everything btw that came straight from HP itself.

Now i try to print documents and the printer is straight-up printing but black print does not come out.
Magenta prints just fine but not black...

I tried to run tests, same issue.  

Now since the cartridges are full on ink, and i only get replacements when the ink runs out, but because it doesn't use the black ink ill never run out by that logic? Keep in mind that i've been getting charged on a monthly basis for quite some time.

HP is there a fix for this? I barely used this printer, the cartridges are the ones that i got from HP so what is the problem?

@Trashys, Welcome to the HP Support Community!


I understand the printer is not printing in black. Clean the ink cartridges up to 2 times as shown in this document - No black ink, wrong colors, other print quality issues

Print a quality page to check the result.
