Canon i9100: colors printing incorrectly

Suddenly the colors on my Canon i9100 are printing incorrectly. I have samples from a week ago, and the same sample from today, and today's colors are pinker. If I print a diagnostic page, it appears that all six cartridges are printing the grids just fine. Not sure what else to try

I've had the Canon i9100 since 2003 and have excellent photo printing results. In 2009 it started playing up and I'd gt some banding. More recently, black didn't want to print. It was as though the black ink in the print head got dry some days.

April 2010 - The colours started printing strange and I bought a brand new print head and installed it. Only takes a minute. Still had an issue with photo printing. Black and white was excellent but colours weren't true.

Found advice online to try cleaning the print head to print head carrier electrical contacts by rubbing them with a rubber eraser.

I did that and now I'm getting perfect colour photo prints again.

I had been thinking about buying a new A3+ printer but this is old printer is now working as good as new.

Simples.
Uninstall/Restart/Install setup disc's/ run to sequence. Test page.

If still not working right , run printhead facilities two or three times.

Otherwise suspect cartridges.

I have an 8-year old Canon i9100, and have just installed my third brand new Print Head. It worked fine for one month, then the black started fading and then just stopped printing. All the other colors...


It is probably a bad purge assembly, when it doesn't clean or prime the printhead properly you have the problems you are describing. There are 2 sections in the purge assembly, one cleans color and the other cleans the black. Sounds like the black pump is worn out. The part runs around $30.00

Canon MP 730 prints wrong color tones


I was having a similar problem-- what was happening was the print cartridge head seemed to be letting the colors leak into each other. (the science behind this is beyond me!)-- I noticed that instead of being cyan/magenta/yellow, my yellow cartridge had actually turned green, magenta was picking up blue and was turning purple, etc etc. I ended up replacing the printer's printhead and all the color cartridges and then it worked.
You can order printheads online.
Not sure if this fixes the original reason why they got all mixed up in the first place-- if the printer will continue to allow the print head to leak the colors into each other-- but hopefully that's a fixit!
