Hi Patrick, Thanks for replying.
So, here's what Idid-
Printed a nozzle check pattern by pressing the reset button for 2 flash lights on the power button, see results below
Cleaned the nozzle twice by pressing the reset button for 1 flash lights on the power button, see results below
Deep cleaned by following the steps here-
Since the black color is fine as per the nozzle check pattern so I selected CMY only.
Posting photos of the ink level as well. Have not performed the system cleaning yet. Should I do it? Why is the Magenta color not showing at all in the nozzle check pattern?
