I had this problem several times, had to buy new print head until I found that to clean it you should use ammonia. It really worked for me. You should really try ammonia it does work.

Can't print the black ink


I spoke with technical support at Canon and they determined that the printer has died. There is no solution to this problem, other than getting a new printer. Thanks anyway.

Try to unclog your printhead, release the printhead from the machine, take hot water in abowl, blow air on the upper black cartridge with an injection tool. At the same time put your printhead in to the bowl. Good luck

Smeared lines


Okay, this was the problem I posted a few days ago. It's fixed now, so in case you have the same problem with smearing, here's what the help desk from Canon suggested: Open the cover and remove the ink cartridges. There is a gray lever in front of the cartridges. Lift this lever and the printhead can be easily removed.
Our printhead had a buildup of black ink on the surface. I carefully removed this with rubbing alcohol. I let the printhead dry and replaced everything. No more smearing. Imagine a help-desk that actually helped!

Black not printing


I just ran into a similar issue with my MP390. Actually both the color and black inks were not printing very well. I would get very inconsistent printing. Fixed the problem very easily and quickly as follows: On the top of each print cartridge, there is a small hole. Remove the print head (lift the gray bar at the front of the print head and lift out the print head) with the cartridges still in place. Holding the print head over a piece of paper/paper towel, blow into the holes on the top of the cartridges (either directly or using a straw/tube of some kind). You should get ink coming out of the botton of the print head, both color and black. Replace and print head and test print.
