Unfortunately, the printhead can only be removed by disassembling the printer and paying for the parts if defective. It is just not worth it. If you have already tried new inks (just replace one - not all) and this number of cleaning cycles - there is nothing else. At this point replacing may be the best solution if you are out of the one-year warranty period.

My 5300 printer is only 15 month old and has developed a fault, it will not print in Black. The photo side 6x4 is great but on the A4 side the text is grey and the photos discoloured. I have gone through cleaning the heads both basic and deep, no joy, have recalibrated still no good, any solutions.

Press the button on the right hand side of the printer. Lift the lid, pull up the little gray handle. Rock the print head container a bit and you'll see a little metal bar. Grab that and pull straight up.

Yup. I suspect the head has been removed from the unit. There are adjustments on some printers. It was assembled wrong. The grating noise is likely the auto cleaner. If it cannot go 'home' the unit will not initialize. Possibly the head detect sensor is broken or covered. If the head will not home (moves out and back more than once or slams home hard), 'Init Unable AF'. You may be able to order a service manual from Brother for this. A repair shop can order the manual as well. (I suspect you need a new print head as well. You might want to replace the printer) see tips on bubblejet printers.
