Canon Pixma MG5020 Not Printing Cyan

Last night [7/3/2022] I did a Nozzle Check and it was good and then 5 minutes later when I tried to print something with color and the Cyan color won't print. I did several Cleanings and 2 Deep Cleanings and still Cyan and Print Head alignment and still no Cyan printed.

Today [7/4/2022] I did 4 more cleanings and 2 deep cleanings and still no Cyan printed. I let the printer go to sleep for over 2 hours and did another deep cleaning. Did a nozzle check and some Cyan printed. The first cyan line has 1 streak of white going through it and the second line has 1 streak of cyan in it and this was after about 8 cleanings and 4 deep cleanings. Am I wrong to do so many cleanings?? I feel I made some progress.

Yesterday I posted that my Canon Pixma MG5020 wouldn't print the Cyan color. Well after about 10 Cleanings, about 8 Deep Cleanings, about 8 Print Head Alignments and 4 Print Head Alignment Values [printings] all the colors are now printing. YAY!!
