does the printer print a test page fine or test page is blank?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
It prints a nozzle check page with everything perfect except it has a blank where the PGBK test should be. The Windows printer Test page has Windows printer test page printed in blue, and a printer logo printed in blue, but nothing else.

clean the nozzles with cotton swab and alcohol making sure they are not clogged

once done reinsert inks and then try a print
