Question about Brother MFC-3240C All-In-One InkJet Printer
Even after changing the black ink cartrige and running the cleaning cycle 5 or more times, the print test page prints only one dot of black while the three colors print all dots. The black print head seems to be clogged. How do I unclog it?
I don't the meaning of the word "clogged" but the better way to clean a printhead is to put hot water on a soft clothe and gently put the cartridge on and off a couple of time. You will see if the cartridge let ink leaking. Important do not scrap with your clothe under the cartridge.

The problem with this printer is that the Printhead is buried deep in the printer and is very difficult to get to. One trick that someone tried is to purchase print head cleaning solution from a website such as www.fillserv.com and fill an empty cartridge with the solution. Then constantly do head cleaning until the cartridge is empty and then try printing. You need to be good at refilling brother LC41-BK cartridge which is very difficult in the first place. I don't recommend it because it may cause more damage. When my Brother printer head got clogged I just threw it away. Its just not worth it in my opinion but at least you have an option.
