@ukulelebill, Welcome to the HP Support Community!


I understand you are not able to print due to this error. To assist you better,

  • Are you using HP ink cartridges?
  • Try making a standalone copy and check if that prints in black. By this, we can conclude if this is a hardware or a driver issue.
  • where did you buy the ink cartridge from?

For now, kindly perform the steps mentioned in this document - HP Printer Does not Print and Error Indicates Faulty Ink Cartridge


If there is no error but you are not able to print in black, clean the ink cartridges and print a quality page to check the result as shown in this document - Black or Color Ink Not Printing, Other Print Quality Issues


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
