Hi 369Slates, many heartfelt thanks for your response.What has me totally baffled is that I went from one ink [MK] not printing, to trying to clean the printheads by placing a 1.5x7 inch piece of paper towel with Windex under the printheads, leaving it overnight and then placing a double thickness piece of paper-towel/Windex under the printhead and moving the printhead back and forth several times, and ending up with no inks printing when I ran the nozzle check.
I had done this cleaning routine before, ending up with a well behaved and clean printer every time - so this is why this throws me.
Unfortunately, I am so low on Magenta ink that I can not run a cleaning cycle. Ironically when running a nozzle check, the Magenta ink is the only one that shows up.
I have attempted to print 'single purge' color blocks [www.maruttusa.com] to no avail.
At this point, I am debating whether it makes sense to buy another cartridge of Magenta ink and run cleaning cycles or chuck the printer, which I would absolutely hate to do since I can't afford a replacement at this time.
I do not quite understand what you mean by "...Have you been able to run the power ink to flush the lines? ..."
If you have any further thoughts on this I certainly would love to hear them.
Again, many thanks! - christian
