HP Deskjet 3520 - Won't print Black text

I have a Deskjet 3520 printer.  I have installed new HP ink cartridges, printing in colour works fine, but the black will not print.  Even if I force black only in preferences to print greyscale nothing comes out.  The print head moves back and forth and sounds like it is printing but the page is blank.  I have also run the clean heads cycle. 

 

Please help!

 

Cheers, Ben

Hi All,

 

My issue seems to get fixed after i ran a "Clean printer" options available.

If you guys having this problem, why not try cleaning ?

HI benperth,

 

I see that you're having problems with your printer printing in black.  I would take a look at the document below.

Thanks, but it didn't work. I tried everything. Can i remove the printhead and clean it manually?

The printhead on this printer can't be removed. Have you verified the ink levels are good & run a couple of Printhead cleans? If that doesn't solve it I would definitely recommend contacting HP Phone Support as you may require a replacement printer.

 

Please let us know how you get on

Thanks, Ciara

My printer deskjet 3522 will not print black all of a sudden.  The cartridge is almost full.  I tried all the suggestions.  My printer is only 13 months old.
