Why do my prints have a strong magenta cast on my Pro 9000? The head is clean and produces a good print pattern.
I have tried printing directly from the camera with the same result.
Any help would be appreciated.

It is my experience with Canon "pro level" printers is, they tend to have a redish bias. This is very difficult to remove.
Canon engineers seem to prefer this warm look. This is built in.
However, on portraits I do like it, too. They look very nice. But on other stuff I know your problem.
I sometimes add a small amount of a 'coolong' filter in Photoshop. This usually counter-acts the built in warming effect of the printer. Remember a small amount, a little is good, a lot is not. It will look slightly blueish on your screen. I mean sloightly!
Hope this helps.

And u/l them here?
I guess you can but you are going to add several systems idea of what they 'should' look like. Give it a go. I would be interested in seeing what you have.

I have had a Pixma pro 9000 for a number of years which has worked well. About six months ago I replaced the head unit when some of the cartridges weren't jetting ink evenly, and again it worked well-- until now. A few days ago I noticed that one ink cartridge, Photo Magenta, had depleted itself in a single day, and without my using that color much. I replaced it, and again, the new Photo Magenta cartridge depleted itself in a day-- less than a day, actually.
There doesn't seem to be any similar useage problem in any of the other cartridges. What's going on, and what can I do about it?
