Good to hear the issue is resolved. :thumbsup

Please print a nozzle check, scan and crop it and post so we may see your success.

problem fixed after Deep Cleaning
Did the actual ink levels in the tanks visually match up with the on screen ink level representation?

Did you add ink to any tank and if so which?

Was it only a Deep Cleaning you did or other things as well?

We learn from each other so we may help someone else in the future.

The nozzle check is greatly improved. Magenta has returned. :clap

There are minor issues that may not be visible when you print, especially in High quality setting. There is a linear light area across the top of the vertical black bars best seen in the second lighter swaths of C, M, and Y. It is also visible in the second long horizontal Cyan swath. This represents either clogged nozzles or irreparably burned out nozzles. Regular printing may resolve them or not.

It is hard to say anything else because of the image quality. Is there a reason you did not scan the image with your printer?

Canon PIXMA G2010 application did not support on screen ink level representation
Then what is the "Remaining Ink Notification Setting" (bottom left of image) for if not a way to inform you of ink levels in the tank, either on your monitor or on the printer's screen? Have you been setting it up as instructed in the User Manual after refilling the tank?

scanned images are little blurry that's why I take a picture

@stratman is irreparably burned out nozzles will affect the printer life span ??

Remaining Ink Notification Setting is just a warning massage .

You set it and it does what? What is the warning when it appears? Where does it appear?

They may have the same low ink warning sensors that the Canon ink carts have.. but at that point if you haven’t already got replacement bottles then you’ll run out of ink, risking an ink flush.. Not really a great system for the owner..

It appears to be very user dependent. The image shows similar warning on ink levels as do other Canon inkjets.

I don't know if OP is still on his first tankful and hasn't gotten an on screen warnings yet, or, if he properly set the ink notification properly and will not get an appropriate warning. He doesn't seem to understand his printer. Maybe he doesn't understand what I asked. :idunno
