i9900 problem

My prints have been coming out with a magenta cast since last week. I have color corrected my monitor with Spyder, use Canon inks and paper and "deep cleaned" the printer. I realigned the printer heads, and did a nozzle check pattern.

These procedures have revealed the following problems as seen in the attached image(s) that I reproduced from the Canon tests.

The "print head alignment" looks normal for all inks except the photo cyan column. It doesn't have a group that blends all the lines together as seen with the other inks.

In addition, the "Nozzle check" test looks normal until you look carefully at the cyan rectangle - horizontally, half of it is lighter than the the other half.

Has anyone seen a similar behavior with the Canon i9900? Second, is there a simple fix for the problem that won't cost me an arm and a leg?

Thanks for any help you can give me - Frank.
