    Good job getting your printer to work again. Congratulations! :clap

    Unfortunately I am not sure your nozzle check is fine. There appears to be linear defects in both the GY and DGY, wih the GY defect being the more concerning. A close up image of Pattern 1 would be helpful. Compare your nozzle check to this one from the manual.

    The Hat is on a mini vacation today and is why he hasn't responded to your earlier post yet. Like Arnold Schwarzenegger in the Terminator, The Hat will be back.

    Thank you for the close up image. Our fearless leader The Hat will be able to guide you from here. In the meantime, to avoid potentially burning out nozzles, do not print anything other than nozzle checks till The Hat advises otherwise.

    Best of luck!

    Canon were, BUT 3D is better..
    Now that’s what I call true grit, and congratulations are called for..:)

    Unfortunately, as @stratman has pointed out, there are some segments missing in block 1, GY and a little in DGY, they can make a recovery for you, depending on how much you have used the printer since these issues appeared.

    Run an Ink Quality Maintenance and then a normal head clean and follow that with a nozzle check, with any luck some if not all the missing nozzles will reappear.

    Leave the printer off for 24 hours and then try another nozzle check, if you don’t get a 100% improvement then its time to think about replacing the head..

    P.S. You must have missed this Pic... ?
