HP printer parts question

So I'm having a problem with my black printer ink cartridge drying out, whilst the colour is fine. I looked inside the printer, and where the cartridges rest whilst not in use, the rubber seal for the black ink looks white and dried out compared to where the colour cartridge sits. Anyone know what this is called? If i can replace it? Cheers

Or, could I take the black out when not in use and put sellotape over it?

How old is the printer?
Probably 3 or 4 years. Might just be easier to buy a new one

Re: HP printer parts question

If your cartridges are like this, maybe this trick will help?
