Pixma ip7250 magenta not printing

I bought a brand new printer yesterday. It will not print magenta although all cartridges are NEW, FULL and GENUINE Canon.


Nozzle check showed no magenta was reaching the page at all. I have tried cleaning twice and still notning. Is the cartridge faulty or is the BRAND NEW Canon printer that is faulty?!


Thanks for any help :-)

Check that any plastic that the ink cartridge was wrapped in was fully removed. Some cartridges have a tiny vent hole on the top and incomplete removal of wrapping can block that hole.
