Question about Canon Pixma MP800 All-In-One InkJet Printer
PINK CAST ON PHOTO PRINTOUTS Canon PIXMA PM800
I have been using my photo for almost a year ... this problem has always Twice I have contacted the support staff at Canon and carefully described the color problem on my Canon PIXMA MP800 ... on both occasions I was told there was no record of this type of a problem ... more than likely a change must be made to the PROFILE settings. Bottom line, we cannot help you.
Last suggestion is for me to sent a printout of a photo that the pink cast is displayed and send it to the Canon support group and also send via email the same photo.
I informed Customer Support that I have another printer ... one that came free with the purchase of a computer (Mac) ... no pink cast !!
Since then I have PURCHASED a HP OFFICE JET 6310 3 in 1 printer ($69) and again I do NOT have a pick cast problem.
This is troubling ... I purchased the PIXMA MP800 for one feature in particular ... the scanning of 35 mm slides. Checking the Online Canon Tech Support listing ... Quite a number of few people have described the PINK CAST problem on their printer.

SOURCE: white bands across printouts
Either one of the print heads are bad or a cartridge. This is what causes that problem. I know it is a hassle but I would take it back. If try and fix it you could void the warranty.

This could be caused by a dirty lens on the laser unit. Try cleaning the laser window. Open the front panel (where you change the toner) and the right you will see a blue lever/handle - pull it out towards you. Now on the right side panel of the printer you will notice a little plastic panel about 2"x0.75" - open that and you will see inside another handle. Pull this handle out and back in a few times. This draws a cleaner pad across the lens. If toner has fallen onto the lens it makes the are it has fallen onto create blank lines on the print. If this does not solve your issue then the next suspect would be the PCU. Just get another one (same as C1100 if you can borrow one) and try it.

I figured out this problem it may cause; The problem behaves strangely why only on the right section the printout is not fused. The common section I first check is the high voltage circuit causing no static properties the powder shall be fused with the drum's developer. Now, it is clear also that the cause is within the drum. Pls check drum's life by printing the machine diagnostic details to check all moving and consumables counters. Clean the drum by rotating the developer roller. Well see if there's a irregularity of powder distribution. Have a nice day.

What kind of lines, horizontal or vertical? Are they colored or black streaks, or white (no ink)?
Thin white horizontals are probably a clogged nozzle. From you maintenance menu, run Printhead Clean once, then do a nozzle check. If that hasn't cleared it, do the deep clean, then nozzle check again.
Thick and/or irregular verticals may be dirty rollers (did you accidently print on the wrong side of your photo paper?) or a glob of ink on the printhead. Open the manual and check the instructions for roller and/or backplate cleaning.

Remove the toner cartridge and use a soft cloth to wipe the photo drum clean of toner. Put it back and try again, if you still get bad prints, then you need a new toner cartridge.
