Hello nlhess2003 =)

If u have already tried cleaning print cartridges and cleaning them with the Printer Software Tool, and still this problem, then its a Clear case of Printer problem,,, take it to a near computer shop and ask them to check the places where u insert the cartridges.... and either they will tell u what is the problem or will clean them with the chemical they use to clean them !!!!

It is the magenta head that is not working, try cleaning the copper contacts on the print cartidge holder.
