Most likely the magenta print head nozzles are blocked.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Then empty the pumt and fill with Windex or propanol alcohol dilute with distilled water to 10%[or windex] and pump this through back and forth untill it shoes clear- put the cart back and see what happens Also download this utility www.ssclg.com set it up for your printer Also take a look at www.fixyourownprinter.com

Since you didn't mention if the cartridge was refilled or factory replacement, I will refer you to the blog for your options.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Clean your print head under the ink maintenance / cleaning. Then test print. All your colors should pass this test. Your magenta is not complete.

Magenta cartrage is 25 % full but will not print


try printing the Supplies Status Page and the DEMO page. if no magenta on either page, then it sounds like the scanner assembly is dirty. this is the lowest position scanner; it can be partially seen from inside the cartridge cavity. Typically a 1-1/2 (ish) hour repair.

I'm having a problem with the ink magenta on an IP4500 Canon Printer, it's not printing any magenta even with new cartridges and I've done all the maintenance checks!! Help!


there are small metal spring contacts between the cartridge holder and the cartridge itself, these send the signals to the print head via the cartridge holder. Over time, as a print cartridge moves from side to side during printing these flatten out and no longer come into contact with the cartridge. Find the contacts behind your magenta colour cartridge and re-tension the spring metal contacts so they once again contact the metal faces on the cartridge. They maybe hard to find as they will be in the place where the cartridge goes, use the flat copper faces on the cartridge to give you a clue as to the position of the contacts in the holder.

Will not print red, changed magenta cartrage still


I have the same problem. I also replaced the magenta cartridge. After extensive on line chat support with HP, it was determined to be a hardware problem, which they said they would fix for $299! Or "Trade Up" to a different LaserJet for $399, which is $50 more than it sells for with a rebate on their website. I am pursuing more options with their "Commercial Solutions Center" 1-800-HPINVENT (1-800-474-6836) This wasn't sucha great invention...

I'm using an Epson 1400 for dye sublimation and have installed a bag feed system. The 1400 is alerting that the cartrages are not the correct cartrages for this printer and will not let me print. Is there...


Hi I know if you go into Start, Control Panel, printers & Faxes, epson 1400, right click printing preferences, maintenance, speed & progress, and click on Disable Epson Status Monitor - this stops the printer 'thinking' the cartridges are running out... Joy

Epson c84 ink cartrages


Hello Carla, can you manually clean the heads where the ink delivers the printer. Try using the printers own program first then do a manual clean with proper cleaning solution if this will not work.
