My i960 will not print colors correctly ( magenta) on photo paper ( used Kodak an Costco). Prints on paper ok.
It will not feed paper when doing a 'cleaning' od 'deep cleaning'. It will feed paper for other functions.
Thanks for your help in advance

I had the same prob w/my I960, went to the Canon website and they said to do a DEEP CLEAN before replacing the print head.
Worked for ME!! Cheers-Herb.

Lift lid ,let carriage stop in middle, un-plug the printer > Remove all ink tanks > Remove print head > Soak print head in > 3 parts very warm water an 1 part ammonia over night. Rinse under faucet with water directly over ink ports, shake out excess water,(if when you shake it out and if color still comes out repeat soaking for another hour or two and rinsing again ,HAD TO DO MINE TWICE) let air dry. (hair drier helps) Cured my problem for a while ,but if not used almost every day, this will happen again, I also use compatible ink tanks. Don'T believe the inks are as good as Canon Ink. But who the hell can afford them. So fill your owe with Canon ink from Canon. Still seems that the cyan always dries up first. Good luck Lestero1

I had this problem with a Canon Pixma MP620. Prints were greenish, both colour prints and B&W prints, and they had stripes across them. I tried a lot of cleaning, wiping and dismantling, and nothing worked.
My solution was simple: I took out the RED (magenta) ink cartridge and "milked" it. I did this by pressing the back part of the ink cartridge between my thumb and index finger. You can see ink going from the back part "reservoir" to the nozzle part where ink is distributed. I did this until a drop fell from the nozzle. I put it back in the printer, and after this, prints were back to their beautiful selves.
I hope this works for you too.
