Cyan is no longer printing on my OfficeJet Pro 6978. I haven't changed anything on my printer recently, tried the hard reset, tried a new cartridge and ran the "clean printheads" function multiple times. Nothing. Still no cyan. Any other possible solutions?
Make sure the ink cartridges are properly vented and seated correctly
Turn on the printer, if it is not already turned on.
Open the ink cartridge access door.
The carriage moves to the center of the printer.
Wait until the carriage stops moving before you continue.
Press the tab inward on the front of the old ink cartridge to release it, and then pull up on the ink cartridge to remove it from the slot.
Examine the vent area above the HP logo on the top of the ink cartridge.
If the ink cartridge still has the orange pull-tab attached, pull to remove it.
If the vent is clogged, use a straight pin to gently remove excess adhesive from the vent.
With a straight pin, gently remove excess adhesive from the vent
Turn the ink cartridge so that the ink cartridge contacts face downward, and then match the label color with the color dot on the carriage.
Slide the ink cartridge into its slot, and then gently press the ink cartridge down until it snaps into place.
Repeat these steps to inspect the vents on each of the ink cartridges.
Make sure each ink cartridge is firmly installed in its slot. Run your finger along the top of the ink cartridges to feel for any that are protruding, and if any are, press down firmly until each ink cartridge snaps into place.
Close the ink cartridge access door.

I hope that helps.
To thank me for my efforts to help you, please mark my post as an accepted solution so that it benefits several others.
I worked through the steps you suggested but still no cyan. The cyan cartridge (I now have two new ones) both had clear vents and I used a small straight pin to make sure they weren't clogged. Still no cyan printing when I print color.
