HP K60xi alignment page has no color

I just got a used HP K60xi all-in-one printer.
The alignment page prints black only, no color,
so alignment fails. I loosened up the nozzles
with alcohol, and put the cartridge nozzles-down
on a paper towel, and put it in a ziplock bag,
and let it sit upright overnight. The towel
has plenty of ink in it now, all colors, but
when I installed the cartidge, the alignment
page doesn't have any color on it at all, so the
alignment fails. I have cleaned the electronic
contacts on the cartridge and on the printer,
but that has not improved the problem.
Any more ideas on things to try?
