    I replaced the image drum for cyan, magenta and yellow all at the same time. Of course, it then indicates that I'm out of toner for those same colors. I replaced all three toner cartridges at the same time as the image drums.

    Got a dark magenta overtone on any color or black/white photographs I tried to print (with advanced color chosen in print properties), and get a double color on any blues, with magenta being the predominant color. Blues are either a dark indigo, or a dark purple. Blue fades to a slightly lighter color on right hand side of page.

    Had NO TROUBLE until I replaced image drums and cartridges. Is there a denisty changer?

Can I print with one cartridge at canon pixma ip1300 with out replacing or installing other cartridge.

Absolutely, the only thing you need to do is to configure your setting to the right appropriate ink, say for example you ran out of black ink you can go to printing properties and select to be printed in blue, in this case the color match will use magenta and cyan to create blue.
1 select your default printer 2 select printing preference from your printer from there you can change the color of your desired print 3 you can select print in color for example or grayscale 4 then print your document.

Stylus Photo 820 printing magenta lines

did you clean the communication ports , where the cartridges "talk" to the printer, the ports can get covered with paper dust and erronus signals can cause the printer to activate the magenta cartridge causing your problem. reomve the cartridges and Gently clean the comm ports with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol let dry then reinstall the ink cartridges.

Prints "blue" on a document that supposed to be "red"

the red color contains the blue and magenta colors so your problem is not printing blue insted of red , your red laser miror is dirty from inside you should open the back of the printer then open the laser scaner then clean it then replace it

Can't color balance 2605

well, the density is actually a combination of two aspects. The original document settings, especially in color transforms. Usually, the software will have a transform specific for the printer. In my experiences, trying to tweak the printer for each print job, can cause extreme frustration. Check the software manual for settings for your printer, and perhaps you'll get closer to this solution.

Got backup?
