hi Richard,

We have cleaned the printer cartridges

A cause for this is a build up of waste ink in the machine. Can you follow the steps here please to clean the machine

hi, yes we tried this and still have pink lines, we have even replaced cartridges

It is the internal drum unit that will need replacing as it has the ink etched into it, If everything else has been cleaned this will be the cause.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the printer to have this replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
