Hi,

 

Please can anyone help me with the black printhead.

 

I have done trouble shooting and it done a printhead clean probably 5-6 times in all.

 

The test print hasn't changed.

I have also tried soaking the head in some wet tissue on a plate for about 10 minutes, no change.

 

Please help so I dont have to buy a new printhead yet.

 

Thank you all and any tips / fixes would be absolutely great.

 

Thank again 🙂

How old is the printhead? It sounds like you have tried all the common remedies other than letting it soak longer. Just might be time for a new printhead.
