This is what my printer test print looks like now. A few weeks back the printer gave a P08/5200 error on my G2010 and yesterday both magenta and yellow stopped printing.

I tried a Deep Clean and rested the printer overnight but it didn't solve the issue.
P08 as per Google means head overheat (The ink tubes were full of ink so might be some other issue).
Black ink prints fine.
Don't mind my handwriting 😂

Either continue using it as a black only printer or get a new print head, because your current head is well past its sell by date..
Looks like the old head got damaged by overheating. I had to shell out 14.99 for a new head which Canon Service Representative will install tomorrow. I hope this lasts longer.

Btw what did you mean by well past it's sell by date?

It's phrase for something that has gone bad/expired.

The replacement heads seems to be cheap enough to stock up on as a consumable.

Canon replaced the CH-7 Head today and Colour print is back to the same quality as day 1. There is a slight colour tint but thats because of a different paper shade.
