Pixma IP8720 Banding across all colours

at first I thought this was a print head alignment issue but after going through all the troubleshooting I realised that alignment issues seem to usually one or two colours (i.e. the misalignment will be horizontal on the test pattern). I ran all the possible cleaning and alignment cycles. I also cleaned out the print head until all nozzles ran clear. And finally I installed new cartridges. I am trying to avoid sending this printer to the bin. I quite like it.

My iP8720 had been working flawlessly but just started printing a band across the left side of the images. I've cleaned and aligned the print heads, tired different papers and images and the problem persists.band along the left sideband along the left sideTest printTest print
