Question about Canon SmartBase MP390 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I too was given a canon mp390 because the black wasn't working at all. I tried the flush out solutions etc with limited success. I have just now blown it out through the hole in the top of the cartridge with it still in the printer head with an air compressor (turn it right down to low pressure) and it now works perfect. I was just about to give up, but its alive again.....

I'm pleased it worked for you NB28, but it hasn't worked for me and my printer is still not printing black. Looking at forums, it seems a common problem and soaking the print head is suggested in distilled water and blowing it out with an air compressor! Looks like that might be might next step when I get time!!
Thanks for the advise anyway Patrillica.
