yes I put in a new color and a new B&W cartridge.

Now I see that one roller is full of ink. I cleaned it off and then reran a test page. The roller is now black again. Only one roller

As it's on the right-sde it could be your waste ink tank is leaking onto the roller.  Try blotting the roller a few more times to see if it clears it.
