Have a look at the bk cart. Did you fix it well into position by clipping the support above the cart?
Can you see any difference by ink fuel before and after cleaning cycle? If there is no difference the valve is not open: drill a hole into the top cover and leave it open. Try another cleaning cycle again.

there are no instructions that you would understand and once the print head is clogged up, you can noy mannually clean it , it has to be replaced! sounds like you are using generic ink!

Open up amd release blue stay at bottom by pressing edges inward and pulling slightly forward. Remove the 4 screws, 2 small plastic covers and the earth screw. Pull out the ribbon connector near the USB plug. Unplug the 2 white and one red connectors, noting how the cables fit in. Fully open the lid and pop the scanner part off. Remove all the ink cartridges. Now using a flat screwdriver unclip the top of the base all the way round and lift off. The print head is now accessible. Rotate the white paper feed cogs to release the print head. Slide it all the way to the right and remove it by tilting the back edge upwards. You mow have access to the print head!!!!

It's not your ink. Error 36 means either the printhead carriage is unable to travel back and forth properly, or it does, but the machine can't get the proper feedback from it. It might be an easy fix, once you get the top cover off the printer section. (Start by prying the narrow covers out of the main cover, then unplug the cables under those covers.) Often it's a small scrap of paper that got into the path of the head. If so, it's probably black with ink and hard to see, but fishing it out with tweezers should fix it.
The machine keeps track of where the head is by counting nearly-microscopic stripes in a quarter-inch strip of film that runs across the printer section. That strip should be oriented vertically and sitting in a slot in the head. If it's stretched up across the top of the head instead of down in the slot, the head can't see the stripes and panics, giving the error 36. Gently lift it and drop it into the slot. If it's smeared with ink, gently clean it with a wet cotton swab.
