Default Stops printing red color after idling for 30 min

Hello Everyone.
I started experiencing problem printing red color.
It prints red OK. Then it stops printing it after I leave printing idling for 30 min. It prints yellow instead.
I have to run head cleaning for 3-5 times to enable red color again.

I have already replaced printhead, capping station, printhead cables, dampers. I have checked red color tubes and bottle.

However problem persists. I will appreciate any suggestions how to solve this problem.

It sounds to me like a damper fault, the magenta is falling back down the ink line towards the bottle. Try switching the magenta and black dampers to confirm this.

look for ink starvation, air in the lines and making sure the ink is at the correct level

How can I check if there is air in lines? I swapped yellow and red dampers. Still it prints yellow OK but doesn't print red. It printed red just a hour ago with yellow stripes. So it is not a printhead issue.

Check the age of the ink, old ink can cause blockages in the damper filter. Also check the bottle breather holes.
