Hi, Im sorry to hear your having this problem.

How old is your Officejet?

ALso does it get a lot of use?

And are you saying the black cartridge is not working?

And will it still print black by mixing the other colors or do you get no black print?

Thank you

Hi thank you for all that information. On this one there is a mechanical issue for sure.

We could help further but you would need to get into the machine and work on it with us. But...that would void your warranty.

The best way to handle this is to contact HP using phone information in your user manual and on the warranty card. That is the quickest way to have one repaired or replaced. That will be your choice when you call them. Tell them you simply would like a replacement printer.

I wish I had better news for you, I really do.

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

Please rate my service kindly.

Also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you.

Once you rate, I will be notified and will add your question to my priority list so you can reach me anytime until this problem is solved.

Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.

Thank you
