When you are ready to print but encounter a problem, such as the My Hp Photosmart 6520 Won't Print or any other colour for that matter, it is rather disappointing. Furthermore, anytime you try to print something, all you get is a blank page.

These kinds of problems are frequently caused by an ink issue. As a result, since ink is a vital component of inkjet printers, it is a common problem. Checking the ink level and refilling it as necessary is a common solution. Nonetheless, we have gathered a list of different options to fix your problem in the post.

How to Fix the Printer Not Printing Black?

You may have such Hp Photosmart 6520 Black Not Printing problems even if the cartridge has enough ink. The hardware of the printer or the system to which it is connected may be at fault. Restarting the printer or the linked device may seem like a straightforward solution, but it may not always work. As a result, you must attempt each fix until your issue is fixed.

Clean the Printhead 

Your printer occasionally has printhead nozzle clogging, which prevents it from printing in black or any other colour. The print output is also discoloured or faded. You can either physically clean the printhead or use the printer settings to solve it.

The majority of printers offer a nozzle check function. Even though each printer manufacturer may have different settings, you can typically locate them under the Maintenance menu. If you see any gaps or missing lines after performing a nozzle check, you can clean the printhead. The printer settings are where you may accomplish this.

Similarly, to physically clean the printhead, gently pull out the detachable printhead as doing so forcibly could result in it breaking. After that, clean it with warm water or a liquid solution in a syringe. After cleaning it, let it completely dry out or use a paper towel to speed up the process before reinstalling it in the printer.

Clean the Cartridges

The cartridge is another important factor contributing to your problem. After being removed, it could be reinstalled improperly or with incorrect alignment. So be sure to install it correctly. Compressed air can also be used to remove any dust that has become lodged inside the cartridge.

You can even swap out the cartridge with a fresh one if you think it may be broken or otherwise useless. However, only use a genuine and printer-compatible cartridge or ink instead of a third-party one.

Run the Printer Troubleshooter

You can use the printer troubleshooter on a Windows 10 computer to identify and resolve printer-related problems. To launch the diagnostic tool,

  • To access the Settings app, press Windows + I.
  • Go to Update & Security > Troubleshoot from the menu.
  • Click on Additional troubleshooters in the right pane.
  • After that, select Printer and then "Run the troubleshooter" from the menu.
  • After that, implement the suggested fixes and adhere to the on-screen directions.

Contact Your Printer Manufacturer

You still have the choice to get in touch with your printer maker if none of the aforementioned solutions work. You can get in touch with them by calling their phone support or via their website.

Similarly, you can read the printer's handbook before you buy. The instructions are quite beneficial for resolving frequent problems. They also include fixes specifically for your printer.

Printer repair

If none of the aforementioned fixes succeed, there may be hardware problems with your printer. Check the warranty period first, and if it hasn't expired yet, request a free repair or even replacement parts from the manufacturer. Otherwise, as suggested, you can present it to a repairman who will replace the broken components. However, if your printer is too old, you might want to think about getting a new one.
