Cartridge Fountain Pen Won't Write

I have a fountain pen that won't write. I've rinsed out every molecule of dried ink; I've soaked the nib in water and even dipped it in alcohol. When I attach an ink cartridge and squeeze it, the point still doesn't show a drop of ink. Has anyone solved this problem?

I've had this problem in the past and found out that there was a tiny piece of lint or paper fiber jammed in the nib.

Check it out under a strong light and use a magnifying glass if necessary. If there is lint, you should be able to remove it with a straight pin or tweezers. Good luck.
