Doesn't print black in documents

HP Recommended
ACER Spin 3
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When printing word documents, or excel spreadsheet documents or *.PDF documents the printer will not print black. It prints color. 
I ran a clean cycle (three times).
I have manually cleaned the print head.
I replaced all the ink cartridges with HP ink (I have only used HP ink)
I use only HP paper.

I have printed no less than 5 test pages, and printed the alignment pages. They ALL print black and color just fine.


What could the issue be?
