Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
You haven't mentioned the exact brand and model of your printer so i/m assuming that the cartridge also has the printing head. Take out the cartridge and look at the contacts from the carrier - if they are dirty the head will not be correctly recognized or commanded - clean them with alcohol.
If the printing head is on the carrier - separate from the cartridge - then your only option left is to soak a piece of lint free cloth in isopropylic alcohol, place it in the location of the cartridge and pour some more alcohol over it - it should dissolve the hardened ink. If even after you have done that the magenta ink isn't printed then the printer head is damaged - sorry, you need a new printer.
