Pixma MX922 not printing magenta

Artelise

My magenta cartridge ran out of ink. I needed to finish printing something so I popped in an old one to see if there was anything left. There wasn't. I replaced the cartridge with a new one and it is still not printing magenta. I tried a different unused cartridge. I changed all the cartridges. Nothing helped. Any suggestions?

Hi Artelise,

Please open the cover to your PIXMA MX922 and make sure that there is no orange tape on the top of the magenta ink tank.  Once done, please close the cover.

Next, please perform a few printhead cleanings.  To perform this, please follow these steps:

1.  Please press the MENU button on your PIXMA MX922

2.  Use the down arrow key until the wrench and screwdriver icon is selected, then press OK

3.  Select Maintenance then press OK

4.  Select Cleaning and press OK

5.  Select Yes and press OK

When the cleaning is complete, please print a nozzle check.  If magenta does not print, perform another printhead cleaning.  If magenta still does not print correctly, please perform a deep cleaning.  After performing those cleanings, the magenta does not print, your PIXMA MX922 would require service.
