Any errors on the printer? Is it an OEM or a refurb or a refill? If one of the latter two, replace them. Try running a cleaning cycle see if that clears it.

A printer is usually provided with a cartridge and specification on the number of prints it is capable of producing per cartridge. It is advisable to use the same brand of black ink cartridge for the corresponding printer, as they are known to function flawlessly. Companies selling printing accessories offer high quality and long lasting black ink cartridges that need fewer refills and hence prove to be more productive.

Using OEM cartridges, 2 different new ones. Cleaning did not help

It's dead then. If it's warranty, good, if not, inkjets are pretty much disposable once they break, all the cost is in the ink unless you get a model with tons of fancy features like an LCD screen.
