DC 242 weird printing problems after long time unused



i have a weird problem with my 242, it was unused for 2 years.

The internal test patterns looks good, but everything else is just full

covered with magenta or there is no magenta at all.


Have someone any idea why the internal test pattern that i printed looks ok,

but the ps testpage and everything else in copy and print mode looks like in the 



Where is the difference between an internal print pattern and the ps testpage, 

shouldn't both look good or not? I don't get it. 


Thank you in advance

Best regards
