As for installing new cartridges:

will automatically move the ink cartridges to the center of the opening.
Unplug the printer's power supply cord from the electrical
outlet to avoid the risk of an electrical shock.

top of each cartridge housing. Pressing down on the cartridge housings
will cause the top of each housing to automatically lift up, thereby
exposing the cartridges. Lift the cartridges out of each cartridge
housing to remove them.

cartridge, depending on the particular type of cartridge. The safety
tape ensures that the cartridges do not leak ink before being installed.

Align" option. The printer will produce several printed pages to confirm
that the cartridges have been aligned. Other Canon models allow the
user to align the cartridges directly from the printer. These printers
features a display screen on the printer. Press the "Menu" button on the
display, then use the arrow keys to select "Settings." Press the "OK"
button, then use the arrow keys to highlight "Maintenance." Press the
"OK" button, then use the arrow keys to highlight "Manual Head Align."

printed pages confirming that the cartridges have been aligned.
The paper is jaming or not going through the printer evenly.Open it up and look for anything loose or broken like teeth on wheels or somethng sticky or even paper dust. Then try one piece of paper alone first.
