This is a HP 65 cartridge. Only the blue fades. I've soaked the bottom of the cartridge in alcohol and hit water. Is this a physical or electrical issue?

It looks like ink starvation!
Well yeah I thought so too but it's full. It will either print blue properly or this faint pink. I wouldn't think it's physically jammed in there. I'd guess it's an electrical issue of a dying cartridge but idk how these things work

If it's suffering of starvation it doesn't matter if it's full or not. Electrical damage shows some defined partial printing leving some blank areas.

So what do you mean exactly by "ink starvation" and how do you fix it?
