    Printer won't print black

    I have an HP Officejet 6500 wireless printer.

    I am trying to print in black.

    I have a new black cartridge.

    I have new color cartridges.

    I have cleaned the printhead

    I have aligned the printheads.

    What in the world could be wrong with it?

    It prints everything but black.

    any ideas?

    Yes. If under warranty, turn it in. If not, buy a new printer. Printers can drive you nuts.
    "Pertaining to things not essential to salvation, we have liberty. To attempt to emphasize that which is not essential to salvation, and thus divide forces, would be a crime. Unwillingness for others to enjoy the liberty that we enjoy in reference to doctrines not vital to salvation is bigotry, from which the spirit of holiness withdraws itself" (Phineas Bresee, report of the BoGS, 1915).

    NEVERMIND.

    I got it to work.

    I amaze myself sometimes....ha ha ha

    Well, I cleaned the print heads, and when I was finishing, I noticed a box that popped up that stated, in essence, cleaning #2 will use more ink, but if #1 did not work, try cleaning a second time......so I cleaned the print heads a second time, and viola!!! it now works.

    I guess cleaning the print heads once in a while is an important thing......must be.

    Anyway, thanks for reading!!
