  • HP 6520 will not work after changing the black ink cartridges

    Changed the cartridges and now black ink will not work. This is the second or third time only to change the cartridges - did not have a problem before, but of course, it is while the printer was still under warranty. It is now about a year and a half.

    I used all the suggested diagnosis - head cleaned, head aligned, etc, etc, etc, and nothing has helped.

    The black cartridge worked after the swap, but with a few lines do not print or missing--now produces almost nothing.

    Cartridges color was wonderful at the beginning of the troubleshooting process, but now they're starting to not look right - with spare no effort to correct the print head, he seems to be making it worse.
