Issues printing pink on Canon Pixma Pro 200


I have been using Canon Pixma Pro 100 up until a few days ago… but it's finally given up on me so I'm now using a Canon Pixma Pro 200. I'm having issues with printing the colour Pink. It comes out a very definite purple. I have downloaded the ICC profile for the paper I'm using and have ignored the printer settings and selected appropriate Photoshop settings instead. The only workaround I have found is to adjust the pink colour in Photoshop by changing the hue/ saturation. But this has meant a lot of experimenting and wasting a lot of good paper and ink. I have even tried printing from my desktop Mac (I had previously been printing wirelessly from my MacBook Air) and using the USB cable (after seeing a thread about USB printing. having better results). Both give the same purple colour instead of pink. Please tell me there is an easy solution? The Pro 100 just worked perfectly! I never had any issues with colours when using that printer.

1. have you run a nozzle check?

2. have you confirmed that you have the Canon IJ Series driver and not the Apple AirPrint driver?

Hi… I have made sure it's not using AirPrint (after seeing a lot of people suggesting this in other threads). But haven't tried a nozzle check. I will try this later today. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll update once Ive done this.
