if you have new print head assembly and cartridges, and waited for flow, and the printer is MECHANICALLY sound (not dropped or G-force damaged), then all that is left is improper cartridge installation. You may not have the cartridges fully inserted/, or maybe they are not PROPERLY inserted. Look for a snap when in place (and no wiggle). I suspect this is your problem, because one symptom you mention, ink accumulation INSIDE the head/cartridge cradle, is VERY rare -unless the cartridge is inserted improperly. The cartridges/head assemblies have VERY good seals to prevent leakage. Unless the o-rings/seals are damaged, leakage outside the seal just does not happen at all, normally.
*New head/cartridge installs can take several hours -sometimes even a day in cold weather, for small iP90-like printers to saturate the heads -and print.

Quick and easy way to do this is to use the automatic duplex more as this uses the 8K cartridge instead of the 5K.
Thing to note is that the 8K is the photo black and dyebase whilst the PG5 is a pigment ink.
As a general rule you'll want to use the PG5 because it's cleaner and sharper for text while the 8K is much better for photo quality inks...
... and the reason it's used for duplexing? Simple... it dries quicker! .. So, you don't have to wait as long for the page to be pulled back in and you get less chance of smudging...
Hope that helps...

try to change the color ink. horizontal banding (the pink or other color lines appearing means horizontal banding) when there is a problem on one of the heating element of the printer head. since almost all canon printers have head built in the inks, replacing the faulty ink will solve the problem. if not then the controller of printhead on the carriage and mainboard needs to be checked.
