Canon CP 220- HELP

URGENT!!! Must hand in school work 2morrow and my printer isn't working, I have been sitting here for the last 3 hours trying to fix it. Can someone please shed some light because I?m now panicking!? My Canon CP 220 photo printer is only printing on the right side of the photo gloss paper. I have checked and double checked all the settings and everything seems fine. I have also uninstalled and re- installed the software (etc) but the same thing continues to happen. I've read that it might be the "printer head carrier fault" what does this mean? And how can I fix it? Please please help....

How do I open the cp-220 to fix the white plastic roller!

There are another 4 screws that you have to remove at each corner - you need a long and small headed star screw driver.

Printer is only printing on the right side of the photo paper

Check out the cartridge on the Rack moving completely otherwise clean up the Carriage rack,

remove the Cartridge once and then clean it firmly, its Nozzle and contact strip.

Then clean out with a cotton or paper the carriage rack and contract strip, also the Roller (if you are accessible to that).

If no luck then try for reinstall the printer, and use of new cartridge.

Let me know if you need further assistance. Download the Driver using this link:

I looked hard for a solution too. No luck. What a bummer. Cannon is not high on my list at the moment, I will remember this next time I'm considering their products.
