Is it giving an error or just prints every colour except for black?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

It prints every other colour but not black.

I have changed the inks for brand new ones,

I have run clean the print heads, stage 1 and 2,

I have run alignment,

and I think that's it Richard

ok, then its the print head that has failed. You have already eliminated all other caused for this. Its not a removable print head so it cannot be manually cleaned so they have to manually dissemble and replace it as you already ran the print head cleans via the software which will clean it as much as possible.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the printer to have the printhead replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
