Canon Pixma MX700 colour striping problem

Aug 30, 2011
I have a Canon Pixma MX700 which used to work perfectly, but recently I'm having a problem woth excessive use of magenta.

It seems to print in vertical stripes and seems to fade more towards the right of the page.

The test print pattern has magenta running horizontally thru both blue stripes and the corresponding black sections.

I've tried cleaning, deep cleaning, roller cleaning, etc, etc, and cleaning my printhead and cleaning pads all to no avail!

I have no idea why it is using magenta instead of the correct colour in this way and hope that someone can help out.
