Printer is only printing half of the text it should be printing?
Please help, yesterday the printer printed the first few sheets properly but after a while it only printed half the text on each page. Today it's giving me a third of the text i should have on each page but doesn't print the missing text on other pages??
Sometimes it prints a half page and other times a third. Can i fix this myself? I don't think the printer has ever been serviced and this isn't really an option at the moment....? It's about one yr old...

Sounds like the Photo-conductor is going bad. If it's a separate part in your printer, you just might want to change it out. Otherwise it might also be built into the toner cart, and you'll need to get a replacement toner cart. Not usual but, i've seen a few bad toner carts.
Printers try to fit web pages on a single sheet of paper. If you configure the printer, in the print dialog, not to shrink images and text to fit the paper, it will print on multiple sheets of paper, but the correct size for the images and text.
In a Word document, it depends on what font size you have selected. Most people would rather have the web page print on a single sheet, with smaller images and text than were on the monitor; than tape together multiple sheets for 100% size printout.
I noticed that when I restart Windows, I can print one sheet fine, the second sheet prints only half. Restart again, and I can print one more sheet. My local Canon helpdesk proves as unhelpful as all helpdesks these days.
