    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.

    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!!
