Right. All bars should look like magenta here.

So its bad? Would this need 1 or 2 new printheads? And is there a way to recondition the printheads as I have seen people saying you can or is that just nonsense?

KC head needs replacement, 100%.

No reconditioning, not possible.

Have turned it down for now as by the time I pay £2750 plus the cost of collecting then the cost of the printhead and having it fitted I just think im better off saving a bit more for one that doesnt need the printhead
