Megatank G3200 air in tubes issue: color ink tubes not flushing but black does, have tried ink flush


Hi. Having a frustrating issue with a Canon Pixma G3200 Megatank printer with air in the tubes and poor print quality.

First, I cleaned and flushed the print heads to make sure there were no issues there. Getting a good black and RGB stamp pattern after pushing some air through.

Then, I filled the ink tanks.

Now usually, you do an ink flush here, all the tubes fill, and the problems go away.

But what I'm seeing with this one is it flushes/draws black properly, but the color ink goes nowhere. I have no idea why this would be the case.

Any idea what the problem is and what I can do to fix it?
