Not Print In Red

Officejet 5746

My printer detected half the tank of ink in cartridge but not printing out  the red. I ran the cleaning the print head and the test page show every color but the red. I replaced the cartridge and it shows in full but still the same result, no red printing.

Does anyone know the answer to this?

@JakeOC
Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.

 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help,  I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:  
Follow these steps to print a Print Quality Diagnostic 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.

    A Print Quality Diagnostic page prints.

Not Print In Red

I did run the cleaning process couple of times and also replace both cartridges. The P Q D shown ink level are okay and ink is genuine HP. However, the color block does not show the red color in its block (not even a dot) and the alignment is okay. And for the final shot, I reset the printer but no luck not improve. I am just wondering if there is any option in the software I can check.
