I replaced both colour and black ink cartridges. Colour works fine but after one day black does not print. Reseating black cartridge causes it to work but next day same problem of no black printing. No error codes are shown. Is this a fault in the black cartridge?

The TS5151 is a two cartridge printer. Did you install new OEM, remanufactured or home refilled cartridges? In case of the home refilled cartridges and maybe also the remanufactured cartridges an air bubble in the nozzle chamber over the nozzles often causes your problem. A priming tool, for instance like this, can often be used to successfully remove the air bubble and make the cartridge functional again.

You should of course make sure the priming tool is intended for your cartridges. The example looks like it is for HP

If you cannot make a refilled or remanufactured cartridge work properly I recommend to use a new OEM cartridge.
