Canon ip1000 not printing even after replacing a new ink catridge

I didn't use my canon ip 1000 for a few months. after that when i tried, it won't print black. i tried nozzle cleaning ( it showed only blue and yellow bars) . i changed the ink catridge (both colour & black) with a new one. but this time the printer won't print. i tried cleaning, deep cleaning. then i removed the printer head and put it in hot water (as told) for half an hour. again i tried cleaning a couple of times before trying to print, but still the printer won't print........what could be the it repairable or i have to buy a new one? me please

This might seem a dumb answer, but have you removed the PULL tab over the breathing hole. I had a similar problem until I realised my error.

Canon pixma ip 1000 black ink not print

Change black ink. If no result, then the printhead is dried. You need to run clean printhead from the printer driver, but in most cases without success

I have canon pixma ip1000. The first problem was that when I try to print out, the black document showed white lines every 1cm. And it was getting vaguer. After few weeks, I used the funtion cartridge...

This printer is quite old now and has a limited life on the print head. The fault you are describing sounds like blocked nozzles and can be as a result of either the print head starting to fail, or ink clogging the front of the nozzles. The most likely culprit will be the purge unit/capping station as it may have old ink and dirt/dust over time caked on it which could be making the problem worse by redepositing the junk into the nozzles instead of cleaning the head! I would suggest that if you are not too technical or hands on, then a new printer would be a better route to take as the cost of a print head is not worth the expense if cleaning the print head and purge unit with an old soft cloth and warm water doesn't help. I hope this info is useful.
