Black printing in pink hue - Pixma TS9521C


I Printed an invitation two nights ago and it printed completely fine. Last night I went to print the rest of them and they are coming out this pinkish hue, I replaced PLBLK and magenta, I ran test and did a cleaning -even though my test came back correct, I even brought my background into photoshop and made it grey scale, that didn't fix it either. I'm thinking my only other options are shutting down my printer? maybe replacing the BLK ink? I'm attaching photos below. You can see the black is working though because there's text that prints black. Any ideas? I need to have these done this weekend!

I changed the black in and it fixed my issue


changing black ink didn't change my problem. I had just changed my cyan when this happened a few days ago so I put in ANOTHER new cyan cartridge. Then it still has been happening...

Hi chybaskids,

Please print a test page on plain paper following these steps:

1.  Please tap the gear icon at the bottom of your printer's display.

2.  Tap Maintenance.

3.  Tap Print nozzle check pattern and then Yes.

A test page will print.

Please scan or take a photo of the test page that printed and then please attach that image to your reply of my post.
