MG3520 Will not print with the black ink

I am using the MG3520 as an air printer with my Ipad Air2.  I installed a new black ink and it will not print in black.  I have cleaned the nozzle four times and have done the deep cleaning 3 times.  I wiped the contacts on the black ink with an alcohol wipe too and reset the print for the ink I reinstalled it each time.  Any more ideas.  The Canon print app shows that there is black ink in the cartridge.

Hi MNR,

 

A test page should be printed.  The nozzle check pattern shows if each print head nozzle is operating properly.  To do this, please follow these steps:

 1.  Make sure that your PIXMA MG3520 is turned on.

 2.  Load a sheet of Letter-sized plain paper in the front tray.

 3.  Open the output tray extension, open the paper output tray, then extend the paper output support.

 4.  Hold down the Stop button until the Alarm lamp flashes orange once, then release it immediately.

 5.  The nozzle check pattern will be printed.   Please compare the test page that you printed with the one that has been attached to this email.

If the test page does not match the example attached to this email, printhead cleanings should be performed.  To do this, please follow these steps:

 1.  Hold down the Stop button until the Alarm lamp flashes orange twice, then release it immediately.

 2.  The machine starts cleaning the print head.  The cleaning will be complete when the ON lamp lights green after flashing.

Do not perform any other operations until the machine completes the cleaning of the print head. This takes about 1 to 2 minutes.

After performing a few cleanings, please print another test page.

Does the test page print correctly?

[ Edited ]

As previously stated.  I had already done the print test and cleaned the nozzles.  The black portion does not print at all.  I did all of the steps again with the same result.  The test page does not have the black printing.  The ink is so expensive but I installed a brand new black ink and it works fine now.
