Pixma Pro 100 getting ink on the back of my prints

[ Edited ]

I have had my pixma pro 100 for 2-3 years now and have had no major issues.  Last night immediately after changing ink cartridges I began to get small spots of blue ink on the back of my prints.  I have run the bottom plate cleaning multiple times, I have also tried "printing" probably 30 blank photos just to run paper through the printer in hopes of cleaning out whatever ink is in there.  I checked the ink cartridges and have found no leaks, but just to be sure I did change out all cartridges earlier this morning and I am still having this issue.  The photo below shows the marks on a piece of paper after I ran the bottom plate cleaning.  Doe anyone know how I might be able to fix this?UoAenWlm.jpg

Since the multiple bottom plate cleanings plate did not resolve the issue and the ink cartridges are not leaking, the printer may require service. To find a printer repair shop you can perform a online search with the key words of printer reapair and your zip code. That should pull up any repair shop in your are that can service printers.
