I have just installed a new set of inks, just before it packed up on me.

Hi there, unfortunately I have the same problem. After printing the test page no color shows for PM and PC. Would be thankful for the instructions regarding printhead change. Thanks in advance.

OK @AYP, You've got my attention, firstly what have you done to cure the problem of the missing PM and PC inks, and when did you first notice the ink were missing ?.

How much ink is left in both cartridges and did you run a normal or deep cleaning cycle on side (2) of the print head, and a further nozzle check afterwards to see if there were any differences in the output.

I hope you do know that head removal is not something that is recommended on this model printer, because it will serve no purpose, all maintenance cycles are to be carried out automatically while the head is still installed.

While you have this problem don’t run any Test prints whatsoever other than nozzle prints, the object here is to solve the problem rather than replace the print head if possible..
