Just changed black ink cartridge on HP Color Laser Jet

Customer Question

Just changed black ink cartridge on HP Color Laser Jet 2605dtm printer because prints were very light and unreadable, meter showed black ink out. After replacing cartridge print quality did not change still very light on black only, other colors print fine on same page and test print after cleaning function finished came out great, solid black lines. Have had this printer a long time and changed ink cartridges many times never had this problem.
Using Windows 10 on HP Pavilion lap top.
