Dear sir arthur,
Paper feed problem is usually caused by broken sheet feeder unit. But if you can print nozzle check pattern successfully it seems that paper cam sensor broken so it cannot reach paper end properly.Rarely, faulty paper feed sensor may cause the same problem.

make sure you are printing high quality on chose different color management options.

FINALLY TRY THIS:

When Printing Becomes Faint or Colors are Incorrect

When printing becomes faint or colors are incorrect, even if ink remains in
the ink tanks, the print head nozzles are probably clogged. Follow the
procedures below to maintain the print head.
Important Before maintaining the print head, check the following;
􀁺 Open the front cover and make sure that the ink tank
contains ink. If it is out of ink, replace it.
􀁺 Ensure that all the orange tape of the ink tank has been
peeled off.
􀁺 Press "PUSH" on the ink tank and ensure that the ink tank
is installed securely.
􀁺 Increase the Print Quality setting in the printer driver
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern
Print the nozzle check pattern to determine whether the ink ejects properly from the print
head nozzles, and to verify print head alignment. Use this function when printed results are
blurred or the color is incorrect.
1 With the printer on, load a sheet of Letter-sized paper in the printer.
2 Open the Printer Properties dialog box.
See "Opening the Printer Properties Dialog Box Directly from the Start Menu" on
page 25.
3 Print the Nozzle Check Pattern.
(3) When the confirmation message is displayed, click OK.
When the confirmation message is displayed after the nozzle check pattern has
been printed, click OK.
See "Examining the Nozzle Check Pattern" on page 52.
Note Nozzle check pattern printing can be executed also from the printer
itself. With the printer on, load a sheet of Letter-sized paper in the
printer. Hold the RESUME/CANCEL button until the POWER lamp flashes
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Print Head Cleaning
Clean the print head if you suspect that the nozzles might be clogged. Cleaning the print
head consumes ink, so perform print head cleaning only when necessary.
The print head can be cleaned also from the printer itself. With the printer on, load a sheet
of Letter-sized paper in the printer. Hold the RESUME/CANCEL button until the POWER lamp

See "Opening the Printer Properties Dialog Box Directly from the Start Menu" on
page 25.
3 Start Print Head Deep Cleaning.

print head positions allows you to print without shifts in the color registration.
Print head alignment is performed either automatically or manually. This section deals with
automatic print head alignment only.
1 With the printer on, load a sheet of Letter-sized paper in the printer.
2 Open the Printer Properties dialog box.
See "Opening the Printer Properties Dialog Box Directly from the Start Menu" on
page 25.
3 Print the pattern.

(2) Click Print Head Alignment.
(3) Check that paper is loaded in the

operations appears, click OK.
It takes about one minute to start

Printer attempts to print but no ink is on the paper Printer attempts to print but no ink is on the paper If the print quality is poor or no ink is appearing on the page, it may be because of the following problems:
  • The ink in the BJ tanks has run out.
  • The print head nozzles may be clogged.
  • The protective cap or tape may have been reattached to the BJ cartridge.
  • The BJ cartridge may need to be replaced.
  • You may be using the wrong side of the media.
To check the level of ink in the BJ tanks
Open the printer's front cover and visually check the level of the ink in all the BJ tanks. If a BJ tank is low or has run out of ink, replace it. Failure to do so may shorten the life of your BJ Cartridge
Check the status of the print heads by printing a Nozzle Check Pattern
The Nozzle Check Pattern confirms whether the inks are being correctly ejected from the print head nozzles and whether the print head is correctly aligned.
  1. On your printer, press and hold the Resume button until the printer light flashes two times.

  2. When you release the button, the Nozzle Check Pattern will be printed.

    You can also print the Nozzle Check Pattern by clicking on the Test Print button in the Maintenance tab of the printer properties dialog box.

  3. After the Nozzle Check Pattern is printed, check the results.

  4. Look at the Nozzle Check Pattern for each BJ cartridge. If any colors are missing or if any horizontal lines are broken or missing, perform the print head cleaning procedure.

  1. On your printer, press and hold the Resume button until the printer light flashes one time.

  2. When you release the button, the print head will be cleaned.

    You can also clean the print head by clicking the left Print Head Cleaning button in the Maintenance tab of the printer properties dialog box.

  3. When the print head cleaning begins, the POWER light starts flashing. This will continue for about 30 seconds. Wait for the light to stop flashing before you resume normal operation.
  4. Perform the Nozzle Check Pattern test again.

  5. If the results are satisfactory, resume normal printing.

  6. If the results are not satisfactory, you may need to execute a print head deep cleaning.

  2. Display the printer properties dialog box and click the Maintenance tab.

  3. Click the right Print Head Cleaning button.

  1. In Windows, display the Maintenance tab of the printer properties dialog box.

  2. Click the right Test Print button.

  3. Follow the instructions on the screens to perform an automatic print head alignment.

  6. The BJ Printer Status Monitor displays the Printer Status. The driver will align the print heads then will print an alignment pattern.

  3. Remove the empty BJ tank by pressing in on the release tab and then lifting the BJ tank up and out of its slot.

  4. Dispose of the tank properly, taking care to avoid spilling ink on your hands, floor, furniture, or clothing.

  5. Remove the new BJ tank from its package and pull the orange tape up and against the perforations to open the package film.

  6. Be careful not to remove the label from the tank. You will need it to match the tank to the correct slot in the BJ cartridge.

  7. Twist the orange protective cap to remove it.

  8. Do not attempt to reattach the protective cap; instead, discard it along with the protective tape.

  9. Insert the BJ tank by holding it at a slight angle, aligning it with the correct slot. Press down gently on the top of the tank until it locks into place.

  10. Lock the ink tank in place by pressing down on the circle mark on the top of the tank.

  11. Close the printer cover.

  13. Perform another test print to make sure the new ink tanks are performing correctly.
To remove the protective cap and tape from the BJ cartridge
  1. Open the printer's front cover.

  2. Unlock the BJ cartridge by raising the cartridge lock lever. Make sure you raise it all the way up.

  3. Remove the BJ cartridge by holding it by the circles on the left and right sides.

  4. Make sure that the orange protective cap has been removed.

  5. Make sure that the protective tape has also been removed.

  6. Replace the BJ cartridge and move the blue cartridge lock lever until it locks in place.
To check the media:
  • Make sure that you are printing to the correct side of the media that you are using.
  • Be sure to read any instructions that come with your Canon specialty paper. These instructions provide important information regarding how to achieve the highest print quality with these papers.
