Question about Canon PIXMA MP460 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have been having problems with the black ink not printing on the printer mentioned in subject line. I have tried every avenue available from troubleshooting, to maintenance to even replacing the brand new cartridge just in case the other was a dry one even though brand new.
Please tell me what i need to do and know that I will be so grateful as this has been a four hour ordeal. In addition my HP 7200 series does not print for other reasons, it says usb not recognized or one excuse after the other. I have 30 GB of free space so dont think this is a problem.
Thanks a million for any assistance or direction you may be able to give.

I had this problem with my iP90. I found a solution! I removed the print head (see Canon's support website above for removal instructions) and soaked it in rubbing alcohol for 10 minutes, dumped it out, poured fresh, and let it soak for another 10 minutes. Removed it from the alcohol and shook it off then dried the head with a hair dryer with a COOL setting. Returned it to the printer, returned the cartridges, and performed a deep clean in the Maintenance settings. Voila... it prints again!

You may need to install a new print head. it is very easy to do yourself (basically the same steps you used to install it when you bought the printer- you can also find step-by-step instructions with pictures on cannons support website http://www.usa.canon.com/opd/controller?act=OPDSupportDropDownAct) What has probably happened is that dried ink has accumulated on the print head and clogged it. the "clean print head" option on the printer is a maintenance function that should be performed regulary to prevent a clog; it is not effective at clearing an already clogged print head.
