When printing with A617 I have a small round 8 mm diameter dull spot on the print. My cartridge 110 was dry, because I didn't use it for 6 months. After printing 10 photos, the print is back to normal, however the dull spot remains.

Dirty mirrors will gives you dull color images..It seems color combination faulty..
chk original cartridges installed? or refilled cartridges?

Do the color calibration..
Print from other file..
This problem bugged me for months! Selecting CONT. PRINTING as indicated by Small6363 allowed to print with the warning light on but did not solve the warning light problem. I eventually found a way to bypass the flashing light and warning message.
Underneath the cartridge, on the cylindrical portion, in the middle there is a small flat rectangle. This is the ink level detection spot. Cut a piece of aluminum foil of the same size and place it with a piece of scotch tape overt that flat rectangle. Voilà! No more flashing red light and no more out of toner message! Of course you have to monitor your level visually and change the cartridge when printing starts to fade.
1. power down the printer.
2. remove all color cartridges from their slots.
3. inside the color slot, you will see a green slide that will not move until you pick up the plastic cover.
4. rotate the plastic cover forward.
5. slide the green slide 3 or 4 times. (DO NOT TOUCH SMALL WIRES!)
6. return slide to original position.
7. snap the plastic cover back in place
8. return each color cartridge to it's slot.
9. replace color cartridge holder back to printer.
10. close all covers
11. turn printer back on.
If you still get the "move green slide" error, just repeat these steps
This took me about 10 minutes for the process, after understanding what the "green slide" meant.
The ink tanks may be full but sometimes the pins that connect the cartridges to the printer may have dried up ink on them preventing the ink from flowing. You can try to swab these with a bit of rubbing alcohol on a Qtip and letting it dry for moment or two. I would strongly suggest doing a couple of deep cleanings first and try test printing of the individual colours separately in a program such as paint to see which colour is affected.
