Hi there and welcome

I would like you to run a printhead clean please as this is the most common cause for this issue.

To do this, please follow the instructions on page 172 of the manual here under Cleaning the print head

Repeat up to 3 times if it does not resolve it the first run and let me know if it then prints black please.
