Magenta not printing - Officejet 5740 e-All-in-One Printer

HP Officejet 5740 e-All-in-One Printer
macOS 10.13 High Sierra

Magenta is not printing. I have run the Clean Cartridges maintenance multiple times to no avail. The ink levels indicate there is ink in the tank.

Hi @Xphile1


Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you with the print quality issue. 


To better assist you - 


1) What's the application that you are printing? 

2) Are you experiencing this issue while making a copy as well? 

3) Are you using a genuine HP inks? 


While you respond to that, try these steps to print the Print Quality Report - 


1) Load U.S. letter or A4 size, unused, plain white paper into the input tray.
2) On the printer control panel, swipe the display to the left, and then touch Setup.
The Setup menu displays.
3) Touch Reports, and then touch Print Quality Report.


Evaluate the Print Quality Report for any defects. If there are defects found, try step# 11 to 15 from this document


Also, try updating the printer's firmware. Refer to this document for steps - HP Printers - Updating or Upgrading Printer Firmware 


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
