Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
All maintenance is complete and all cartrages are new
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.
