I have replaced the black cartridge with 2 new genuine HP black cartridges. The printer still displays the "damaged or missing black ink cartridge" and it will not print. I tried cleaning the contacts but no change.

The troubleshooting steps in this document may help resolve the issue. I have also heard of cases where one of the pins in the printer was slightly misaligned, check the pins for the black cartridge and compare with the others. It may be necessary to gently nudge the pin back into position.
