I had same problem this pm. Be sure you have not pressed the button to change paper source to the back feed. The green light on the paper feed button should be illuminated at the top of the printer icon. This solved my problem.
Google "canon ip4300". The canon.com entry near the top has a support tab. and enter "paper skew", you'll get a roller cleaning procedure. As a matter of fact, it didn't solve my problem. The alternative, of having the machine repaired, is, of course, silly vs. buying a new machine. But in the meantime, the lower paper feed still works, albeit slightly less convenient.
To solve this problema, proceed with LF correction procedure, which is well documented on Canon IP4300 simplified service manual (it can be found at Emule network). This procedure prints some patterns and the user has to choose the best among them. One of them will probably enough to compensate (or, at least, to minimize the problem to the point that naked eyes can't observe it) the line feeding error which causes dark horizontal lines along the printer lifetime (probably because of feed roller wearing).
