Lexmark x1190 printer that has stopped printing black

My Mums printer has stopped printing out in black. Ive checked the cartridge and installed a new one, Cleaned the heads, done a test page etc etc and it still doesnt print in black. Anyone any ideas that i havent tried yet? apart from slinging it in a skip somewhere???
thanks in advance

How old is it? Could take it back to the store???

I've got the exact same printer, sometimes when a cartridge is half full.. it'll stop working until i get anew cartridge:S.

aquatic did say that the ink catridge had been replaced, but it sounds like there is a common problem with that printer and so I would recommend contacting the company
