Photosmart C3150 won't print black

[ Edited ]

I just put in new printer cartridges, both black and tri-color. The print levels register as high, but the black ink will not print. I got no error messages. I did the troubleshooting thing where I cleaned the print heads 3 times, but it did not make a difference.

 

I use a Mac with OSX. 

 

ETA: Now I am getting a "low ink" message when I hit the print button, but only for hte black. This was a brand new cartridge of HP ink that I just installed two days ago and used to print about a dozen pages! How can it be out of ink already?

Hi ektnm,

 

I understand that your printer isn't printing in black.  I would take a look at the document below.

Let me know how it goes.
