Photosmart 6510: new black ink printing in grey only

Hey! I have recently changed the black ink cartridge, but it is not printing in black - only grey!


I have done the following to solve the problem:


1. The new cartridge is HP original

2. Print level shows full black cartridge

3. The printheads are cleaned using Tools

4. Installed the HP Print&Scan Doctor - to faults found - all marks are green


Is there anything else I can do?
