    After a powerful cleaning I lost half of my magenta. My gut tells me the line is clogged. but I thought I would ask first. What is the best way to fix this?

    ink supply issue.
    *check to make sure the ink cartridge itself actually has ink in it. (its wierd, but I've had it happen before...my jv3 registered 3/10 level but cartridge was bone-dry)

    could be air in ink line, bad connection between lines>damper>printhead or a cracked manifold (plastic part of printhead that attaches to damper. messing with the dampers sometimes results in this)

    ....or you simply could have a bad ribbon cable connection. power-down, discharge power, and try to remove/reinsert cables related to that channel.

    I think you are right on the connections. A light cleaning brought back some of the jets and than a powerful cleaning took them all away again.

    Life was easier when the worst thing you had to worry about was a clogged airbrush.

    Worn captop can cause this as well. Cheap and easy to replace.
