This is the same issue that you posted before, your color nozzles are not firing.
If it fails the nozzle check test, then you don’t have a lot of options. Remove the head assembly and clean all the contacts on the back. If that fails, then you could have a dead print head or something far worse. The IP3000 isn’t really worth the cost of buying a new head ($50), especially if it doesn’t fix it.
The IP3500 or IP4500 are cheap to buy, however they do use chipped ink tanks.

My suspicion is that the printer has issues beyond a dead or clogged head.
