Problem with black ink cartridge

HP Recommended
cartridge 564 blank
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I just installed a new black ink cartridge 564 in my Photosmart 6525 printer.  When I removed the protective plastic wrapper, it loosened the top part of the ID sticker from the plastic housing.  The printer will not print black, although the other new cartridges work perfectly.  Is that why it doesn't work?  Thanks for your help.

Hello, @C-9 - Greetings!

 

Welcome to the HP Forum! This is a wonderful location to converse with the community, get assistance and find tips!-

 

I understand that your Photosmart printer is not printing in black ink. Do not worry, I'm here to help 🙂

 

First off, I do not think the cartridge is faulty because of the loose sticker. The sticker has nothing to do with the cartridge mechanism. that sais, it could be a defective cartridge as well.

I would suggest you follow the steps mentioned here to fix this issue: http://hp.care/2dW3806

Start with step 9 and 10.

 

If the issue still persists, then the issue could be with the printer cartridge. Try with an alternate black cartridge to further isolate the issue.

 

Let me know if that helps!

Cheers 🙂

Thanks for your help.  The Print Quality Diagnostic shows a white block where the black should be, and I used the old, used cartridge and got the same results.  That suggests to me that there is something wrong with the printer?  How do I fix it?

Hello, @C-9

 

Did you try the steps listed in that document? Especially try to perform a clean print head as suggested in step 10.

 

If that does not help, the issue could be with the printer hardware. Please contact the HP phone support for further assistance with the printer service.
