Customer Question
Hello! I have a...

Hello! I have a HP c410a which is not printing any black and keeps telling me to change the paper and press OK. It has been printing OK until now. I have done a printhead clean tree times but it won't print the report. Do you have any suggestions?

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your printer?

Hewlett Packard Photosmart c410a.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your PHOTOSMART C410A?

Just started an hour ago.

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update the Operating System (OS) on the computer or device you're printing from?

On my Mac, about a week ago. It's all up to date. I'm concerned the printer may be a little old. i think I've had it a few years.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

I don't think so, apart from 2 cartridges were replaced yesterday, and all seem to be OK.
