Canon MP750 won't print text

My canon MP 750 is just out of warranty and I am finding that it no longer prints text...just images. I have replaced the BC1-3eBK inktank and it doesn't show up as full even though it is new. I took it to a technician who tested the printer with a new print head but that didn't fix the problem. He concluded that the problem would be too costly to fix and isn't worth repairing. Has anyone else had this problem and been able to repair their machine? I don't know much about printers or printer repairs....I must have missed that class at school...but I am reluctant to throw it away without trying.
Grateful for ANY help
