Please try upgrading firmware before doing anything else; new firmware was released just a few months ago. The firmware literally reprograms the printer to work differently. It's available here:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=123&modelid=16279#DownloadDetailAct

Click on the tab furthest to the right, drivers and downloads. Then download the firmware (Mac or PC) and follow instructions.

That may not fix your problem, but it can have some beneficial effects. It won't do any harm, and can narrow down further troubleshooting if needed. Please post back if new firmware doesn't solve it.

Hi,
if the error is change paper size also, under printer properties set the paper size i.e. A4, by default its ltr and these can cause problems.After that turn off and on.

Clicking sound and in use/memory light flashes. Canon PIXMA MX850


I had this problem and found that I had plugged the usb cable into the wrong plug hole. I had tried a reinstall of teh printer which failed when it tried to recognise that teh printer was on and connected. When I moved the usb cable to teh correcr socket (closest to teh side of teh printer) it was fine.
