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.
Most likely the purge assembly. That's the unit where the printhead parks and it also primes the printhead for printing. If you run a clean cycle with an ink cart. removed and see if the ink spot is cleaned from the ffilter in the printhead, the purge is working. If you can see ink after a cleaning the purge assembly needs to be replaced. About $85.00 in a shop.
