My v715w is full of black ink but wont print....help

This question is not answered

Hello!

This is my first time.  My printer stopped printing bkack ink a few days ago.  I always choose quick print and use only black ink, so the I dont use the ink so quickly.  When it didnt print, an icon popped up at the bottom of my screen saying that the color ink was low.  I figured that the printer will not print black if the color is too low so, I went to dell.com and ordered a new 24r color cartridge.  It arrived today. 

I popped the 24r in the printer, aligned it, cleaned and printed a test page.  Each page printed only with color and no black ink printed.  I took the black out and reinstalled it then went though the process again.  Then I checked the ink levels and both the black and the color are still full, so I am not sure what else I need to do.  It just stopped printing black all of a sudden so I'm bummed. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you in advance!
