I typically don't write on forums but since there was a new firmware for this product, I figured it would be relevant. The black ink (brand new HP genuine cartridge) is not printing, and have tried ALL HP recommended solutions, step-by-step for hours on end, for this whole week now. I've also checked Youtube and other forums that may have any solutions, and none worked. What happened: I ran out of black ink, replaced it, and now it does not print black ink, and have printed at least 100 test pages, ran too many cycles of ALL the tools automated and manual available and have used up almost all of my coloured ink as well.
I've read a similar forum that is "solved" saying that my printerhead is defective. I am on the same boat where my warranty expired and have only used this printer to print out some documents ( I think I've printed more pages this time than I've ever printed since having this printer 2 years ago). I've also spent quite a bit of money for "genuine HP ink cartridges".
How do I solve this problem, that is clearly not solved by just saying that it's a "printerhead defect".
