PIXMA G3260: Photos printing lines and very pink


I have a Canon Pixma G3260 printer and I've never had issues printing. I was wanting to print pictures on glossy photo paper and it had some pink lines on photos and a pink undertone. I printed a nozzle check and there are some white lines in the colors so I did the cleaning. Printed a nozzle check again and everything was in pink. I did a cleaning again and then another nozzle check and everything was pink and had some of the color lines not printed at all. Nothing has improved. I looked at the bottom plate and noticed some of the magenta in a weird pattern on the foam at the bottom and wasn't sure if that meant anything.

Based on what your G3260 is doing and the steps you have already performed, the next step would be to perform an ink flush.

To do this, please follow these steps from the manual:
