Canon i965. light tones leaning to magenta. printer 6 years old
Because of the way they're designed, older Canon printers can sometimes get dirty print heads which can cause some ink colors not to come out properly or at all. This can cause light printing or a tendency to a certain color, like what you're describing.
The best thing to do would be to go into the Printer Settings (by opening Control Panel -> Printers and Faxes) and right-click on the i965 to select 'Properties'.
Somewhere in that menu will be an option to run a Print Head Cleaning. Find that and allow it to run, and then print a test page to see if the colors have gotten back toward normal.
If it's still printing strangely, you might want to try to find a new print head (check www.canon.com to see if they still support the i965 model). If you can't find a replacement head for the i965, it might be time to buy a new printer, since it will probably cost more to have yours looked at and repaired than it would to simply replace it. Sad, but true!
Hope this is helpful!
