I have a Canon i9900 and have used the OA100 cartridges for about 2 years, and I use a LOT of them. They consistantly work as good as Canon's. I rarely have to clean the heads. The fact that only one color was causing a problem certainly sounds like a print head nozzle problem.

Just popping up to say that since I replaced the print head with the new one Canon sent, I have had no trouble with colour contamination - and I continue to use a variety of compatible cartridges, even Poundland ones! I have just put in one of the new "Thinkplus 30% more ink" cartridges from Choicestatinery.co.uk to try it out.
I occasionally have to clean heads a few times after changing a cartridge but it usually resoves itself.
One problem is the screeching sound that occurs a few seconds after I finish printing, don't think it has anything to do with the printhead, maybe the parking mechanism wearing out?
unlike my old epson, you can't lift up the lid and see what is happening with this Canon, as it just stops working!
