I know this sounds abit patronising but sometimes its happened to me and I found that the cables were not connected to the back of either the computer or the printer.
see if this works if not let me know your make and model and I will assist you further?

I need to restart my computer everytime i want to print


Sounds like you have print jobs stuck in the print queue. Try deleting all documents in the queue and resending print job. Some print drivers choak on PDF documents. Try updating the print driver by download it from the manufacturer.

Try deleting printer then re-installing printer and updating the print driver.

Whenever i try to print anything my printer prints the first 5 lines or so and then just stops and moves on to the next page where it print the first 5 lines before giving up again.


What type of document are you trying to print(PDF, MS Word doc, etc)?
Is the printer connected via USB cable, Bluetooth?

First thing I would do is try printing a different document or even a different type of document.
If printing different documents results in the same problem then I would uninstall the current drivers, download the latest drivers from Canon, then install those drivers and try printing again.
Also, if the printer is connected to your computer via USB cable verify the cable has no exposed wiring or try a different USB cable.

My printer prints email etc. but will not print anything from my computer...example: word documents


I assume you mean that you can print from Outlook or other e-mail program (Outlook Express, LiveMail, Thunderbird). Are you reading your e-mail on the same computer that can't print Word documents?

If yes, one thing to try is to change the font on the Word document. For some reason, certain fonts just do not work. (Most often it is an issue with a document (or template) created on a different computer (or before upgrading the OS) and the font info gets scrambled in the transfer.) Just select all (control-A or Edit, Select All) and choose a new font. If the document has multiple fonts, do not use select all but highlight the sections separately and change the font.

If it is a different computer, check that the network is active and that all the correct drivers are installed. (One thing to check is a Universal Print Driver (UPD) software needs both the 32 and 64 bit drivers if the network has a mix of OS's. This comes up when the printer is attached to one computer and it serves as the print server.)

Printing anything in black comes out with horizontal blank lines


Have you tried updating the printer driver (first uninstall the existing driver and make sure you have the latest one already saved to your PC before starting). I don't think your current one has mysteriously misbehaved, I suspect that it has been corrupted in some way (a new download may have done something to a critical part of the driver). By deleting and re-installing you are "refreshing" everything. Good luck!
