Help! Printer Shows Black Text as White!

Evening All

I've just come to try and print out all of my documentation for my holiday and my printer's decided that wherever there is black text, it will just pretend it's white text i.e it only shows up when there's a colour behind it, which on hotel reservations, isn't often.

No idea why it's all of a sudden started to do this. I've tried updating drivers and using both cartridges to print, but still nothing.

Does anyone have any ideas??

No such thing as white text

i know there's technically no such thing, but you know what i mean. where there's black text on the document and there's a colour/shade behind it, the text is visible, but for most of the documents this means the text isn't printed out.

In other word the black ink is not printing, does it need a new cart?

both carts are new. and I've got black out of it since then. when the print box appears, it shows the levels of the colour and black carts and they're both almost full.

Then jets must be blocked

the printer has a function which allows you to clean the cartridges. i've done that but still doesn't seem to be working. just on an online chat call with Hewlett Packard customer service.
