Put in my CIS & was able to have the printer do Auto nozzel cleaning & check okay.  Printer was printing fine on all papers.
About 2 weeks later I did a nozzel check & the Black does not print or prints very little.
Reprimed the black & still get nothing or very little black on nozzle check.
Printer will not do Auto nozzel cleaning & check now.
Can do manual nozzel cleaning.
Has the print head died?

Hello there, thanks for posting.

From what you're describing, it does not appear that the print heads are dead on that printer.

It might just be that the CIS system could use some maintenance.

Try to prime the system, before you prime it though, remove all of the plugs and the filters.

Follow the steps outlined in the following video

Also, with the cartridges out of the printer clean the spikes inside of the print head. These spikes stick into the cartridges when you set them in.
You should wipe them down with some rubbing alcohol and a wipe.

After that, install the CIS system, run a head cleaning and let the printer sit for an hour and then run another head cleaning. Do a nozzle check and compare that to your previous nozzle check to see if there's any improvement.
