  4. Press Color (Colour) Start. The machine begins printing the Print Quality Check Sheet.
  5. it will ask if the black quality is good select NO
  6. it will ask about the color quality you can say yes or no depending on how the sheet looked

You can go through the procedure 2 or 3 times to decide if it is helping any based on the test sheets it prints before each cleaning.
