Printer problem, yelloow head not working on my canon

I have a Canon Pixma IP3300 printer. Whilst printing a page the yellow ink stopped printing. The yellow ink cartridge is new and full, and i did a deep head clean and personally checked the cartridge myself. All three other colours print well.

I stumbled on an ebay seller who is selling cleaning solution for print heads. Canon print heads are removable without special tools.

I gave mine a clean with metho, as I figured that it could not get any worse and I got the gist that I was going to have to replace the printer anyway.

I cleaned it with metho (just the bottom of the print head) and ran the clean print head function twice from maintenance and it is not working perfectly.

I do recommending taking this advice with caution as I do not know if this process could cause further damage or not work.

My canon pixma ip3300 printer black ink can recognize but when printing no black ink out

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.
