Officejet 5740 prints everything but black text

HP Recommended
Officejet 5740
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My printer will print fine anything in color.  It will print everything but black text from any app.  For instance, it will print a word doc full of text in any color but when i make the text black it puts nothing out.  I can open a paint document and draw black lines and add a text box with black text and it will print all of that.  I immediately to print anything such as an email with black text and nothing.  Ink cartridges are original HP cartridges and brand new.

Print a test page and colors print fine, but black nothing.
