It sounds like a driver problem, maybe caused by installing some new software that interferes with your printer settings.
Try downloading the latest drivers and software from the Canon website.
Before you install them, un-install all of your printer software then shut down your computer, even if the un-install program doesn't tell you to.
Switch off your printer, then unplug the usb cable from the printer (not the pc).
When the computer restarts, install the new software and drivers exactly the same way as in the original instructions that came with the printer.
Only turn the printer on and plug the usb cable in when the instructions tell you to.
If this doesn't work, the printer may be faulty. If you contact the dealer you bought it from, they may have a warranty running with Canon that lasts more than the guarantee period. It's worth a try, though you may have to pay for a courier to pick up and bring back your printer.

Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water or a mixture of hot water and isopropyl alcohol
Use it to clean the print head and the electronic contacts on each ink cartridge
Once done, allow to dry and try again
If the error still persists, you have a damaged print head which needs to be replaced with a new one
Hope this help!
Orange light flashes if there is any issue with the printer. Please check all the hardware is functioning properly. Check if there is any paper jam. If printer cartridge is installed properly. Printing head is ok.

These printers are FULL of very sensitive sensors, and chances are that one of them may have a small piece of paper blocking them. If you can get the covers off by finding the "Triangle" arrow markers, you can inspect all these sensors.
I had this eror. It was caused by indexing error left to right.Would print some then cancel after starting to make clunking and left to right error gets to large.(white edge up the side of full page print). There is a toothed print head carriage drive belt and a clear indexing strip above the heavily white greased bar behind print head carriage. If this clear indexing strip gets grease or anything else on it the print head cannot index. With print head at full right position,power off, I carefully wiped the clear strip by pinching between clean dry fingers and wiping up and down the strip a few times,maybe use cotton wool buds and IPA or methalated spirit if you can't get your fingers in there without breaking the strip. then with power on print head in change cartridge position,push carriage to far left and wipe right side of clear strip.I pushed carriage full left to right a few times,Then ran print head alignment.Fixed without taking apart.
Your actual computer print settings may need re-setting if this makes sense, check your pc's print settings, not just the printers own settings. Yoou can get help with this by going to control panel, printers and faxes, troubleshooting, help and supposrt, and follow links. Did you try specifying the paper type to your printer in properties or settings or selecting fit to page which can override printer default settings. It may be that your printer has a glitch like spyware too, try unplugging all cords, replug and turn on. This will rest it. Sometimes this does the job, and run antispyware etc just to be sure. Some programs have their own "printer" guide, go to printers annd faxes settings to see if you need to select a program specific printer setting.
