Windows 11 Upgrade Guide
Hi, I'm having issues with my printer, black ink is smudging big time, cleaning and realigning the heads doesn't help. Colour is working fine, despite the ink being depleted.
Welcome to HP Forums and Thanks for the post.
I understand that you are facing print quality issue while printing in black.
Not to worry, I will be glad to help.
Kudos to you for trying to troubleshoot the issue on your own.
Are you using genuine HP Ink?
As you have already tried cleaning and realigning the printer.
Recommend you try another black cartridge and check.
If the issue is resolved by the new black cartridge, please contact our phone support for the service options available for the cartridge.
If the issue persists with the new cartridge as well, please try the steps suggested in this HP Article.
For any service options available for the printer, please contact our phone support for the service options available for the printer.
