I know, it's an old printer. Just wondering if anyone else has seen something like this, and if it can be fixed.
Green ran out. I had a spare. Put it in. Colors WAY off, as in:
Replaced the green tank with another (and yes, all of them are genuine Canon inks). No change. Tried clean and deep clean, no change. Ran a nozzle check page - looks like this:
Weird colors and bars missing on several in bank 1.
Uninstalled and reinstalled the driver (WIn10) - same. Oddly, SOMETIMES spot color prints correctly out of Word (including green) and sometime it doesn't (green prints as yellow or blue). Photos out of Photoshop are always bad, regardless of color match or paper settings.
Has anyone seen this before?

Welcome to the forum.
When you say green ran out, did you stop printing and replace or did you continue to print until no green printed?
Have you tried a nozzle cleaning or deep cleaning?
Can you print a screen shot of the ink level page?
It complained it was running out, it finally said green was out and stopped printing, at which I took the green from my cabinet, unwrapped it, and installed it. Ink level showed fine. This is no different from what I've done countless times before.
What was different: the colors.
Yep, both nozzle cleaning and deep cleaning. Same. It just complained about cyan so I replaced that. Now it's complaing black is running low, but if I had to guess it's due to all the cleanings in an attempt to get it to work. I'm not fond of buying any more ink for this creature if it's not reparable.
Once all of the empty ink tanks are replaced, please print another nozzle check. If the nozzle check does not print correctly, please perform 2 deep cleanings. If the nozzle check still does not print correctly, your PIXMA Pro9000 would require service.
