MX452 Print A Sample Patterns Page

I installed a new color ink cartridge last night and the colors are faded and blue.  I've checked the manual and tried to follow the steps to print a Sample Patterns page so that I can adjust the colors, but it backs you out of everything you do and simply says to "Execute print." 


Stupid question maybe, but how do I execute the print?!  There's no print button in those menus.  I've tried applying it and clicking OK, as they say, but if I try to print something of mine, it completely ignores those manual settings.  I'm so confused and frustrated.  Trying to look for a YT video demonstrating this, and couldn't find a single one that isn't using PSP software to do it.

Please review this KB article ensuring you have followed all steps for cartridge replacement correctly.

It also includes instructions for printing a nozzle check pattern from the Printer's Control Panel.


This will bypass the printer driver.


Does the output look correct?


Accurate colors

No missing, broken, or mis-aligned lines

No banding

Text is sharp and crisp
