Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Solved with Windex soaking -
Had the same problem. Took out the print head and sat the ink jet bottom it on a folded paper towel in a small dish. I poured about 1/4 cup of Windex on the inside and outside of the print head (also wetting the paper towel) and slid the dish into a ziplock bag. Let this sit for about 12 hours. Took the print head out and held it under hot running water until the water ran clear. Dried off the print head and repeated the Windex treatment for another 4 hours. Then repeated the hot water and dried off the head gently with a paper towel. I shook the remaining water drops out of the print head by shaking vigorously over the sink. Made sure the circuit board on the back was completely dry.
Reinstalled the print head and cartridges. Ran the head alignment. Printed the test page. Excellent! (I needed to do this twice for a really stubborn one.)

Replace and install the black ink cartridge with this Black Ink Tank BCI-3eBK
Ifyou have done this and is still missing the black ink on print, clean the print heads.
1. Right-click the printer icon, and then select 'Properties'.
2. Click the 'Maintenance' tab, and then click 'Deep Cleaning'. 3. Read the message displayed, and then click 'OK'. The power lamp blinks and print head deep cleaning starts. (Do not perform any other operations until print head deep cleaning is complete. Print head deep cleaning takes about 1 minute.)
That should most likely work. If deep cleaning did not help, you may need to replace the print head.
