5520 New black cartridge won't print

[ Edited ]

Just installed a new HP 564xl black cartridge in my 5520 and it will not print anything in black? Shows that it has a full black cartridge? I've run diagnostics and cleaned and alignged and still nothing in black, only color?

Hi - A couple of things you can try.  First, follow the steps in this document - at least solution 3 since you've already replaced the cartridge. 

If that doesn't resolve the issue, try following the steps, beginning with solution 3 in this document, which will walk you through resetting the printer and cleaning the contacts - even though it is a new cartridge.


Hope that helps.

Hopefully the suggestions from @kkcb9395  will solve the issue. If not, then as this printer is a 5520 I'd advise calling HP Phone Support - regardless if the printer is out of warranty - as you may require a replacement.


Phone no.s



Can you please let us know how you get on?


Thanks, Ciara
