Problem with specific Canon injet color streaking from a damaged printhead

I seem to have a problem with magenta over the other two (cyan & yellow). Using test pages of the three colors and black magenta seems to glog the worst.

This is with 2 different refillable carts and different printheads. The printer is a ip4300 with CLI & PGI carts.

I've done multiple flushes using a cleaning solution and under the faucet (warm water) when a clog develops, but neither seems to help.

Here is the question as it relates to the printhead:

Can running multiple test prints at the fine (best) setting of a single color damage the printhead from excessive heat buildup?

The ink I was using was somewhat older (not sure by how much) so I bought new ink from Precision Colors but magenta still has problems.
