how did you clean the print head ?

if you did that manually by taking it out of the printer and soaking it in water it may need to be primed before it will print

try running the automatic print head cleaning on the printer menu a few times

also you might just be out of ink. or the cartridge dried up

it is tough to diagnose anything else is wrong until you try new cartridges just to make sure that wasnt the problem, because if the cartridges are bad nothing else will ever fix it.
