canon Pixma iP 8500 printer problem

  johnemi 14:38 01 Jul 2007

printer only 16 months old.
When choosing glossy,matt or any of the canon papers the print appears with a pink tinge on items which should be grey.only prints made using "plain paper" setting come out correct but have streaking.Have used different drivers,printed ,by-passing computer, carried out all head cleaning programmes but problem still exists.
Canon say I need a new print head £100.
Anyone with same problem ?

It's perhaps worth a manual clean first. Not a lot to lose if Canon are saying £100.
