Consistent colour cast on first print (PRO100 + PC inks)

Hi, I've got a PRO-100 using PC inks (using their pre-flushed OEM CLI-42 carts)

What I'm noticing is that the first print always has a slight magenta cast. See the picture below as an example, with the hat on top right depicting best this color cast difference. The left one is first print after turning printer is on and the right one is how all subsequent prints turn out.

I then start re-using printer after a day or two and the same thing happens - first print has that magenta cast.

Anyone else experience this? Could this point to a defect in one or more of the carts?Maybe a difference in ink flows from cart to cart?

Left is first print and right is any print after that.
