Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Try doing two or three Printhead Cleaning cycles, from your printer's Maintenance menu (or Maintenance functions in your HP software on your computer, where it can also be ordered.)
If those Cleaning cycles are offered as 'Black' versus 'Color' or '[various colors]', then choose Black Cleaning or Clean Black.
Let me know whether that gets the black ink flowing freely - it should.
As for why the selection for Premium Photo Paper get it flowing... maybe, because that type of paper requires a larger ink volume, and that way it gets through the partially clogged printhead / 'nozzles'? at a guess.
They may have clogged, because the old black ink ran dry, perhaps, also.
Let me know the result, please... or if you need further instructions.
If the result is good/favorable, please tell me, so that I may close this case. Thanks!
