Assuming that you are using original Canon cartridges or a brand of Compatibles that you have used before.
If print results are blurred, colors are faded or not printed correctly, the pint head nozzles are probably clogged.
Follow the procedure below to print the nozzle check pattern, check the print head nozzle condition, then clean the Print Head. You may have to do this 2 or 3 times.
If printed ruled lines are misaligned or print results are otherwise unsatisfactory, aligning the Print Head may improve print quality.
Caution Do not rinse or wipe the Print Head and ink tanks. This can cause trouble with the Print Head and ink
Note Before performing maintenance
Open the Top Cover and make sure that all lamps on the ink tanks are lit red.
If not, see Checking the Ink Status and take an appropriate action.
Increasing the print quality in the printer driver settings may improve the print result.

> replaced the print head
Did you replace the tri-colour ink-cartridge, or did you replace the print-head mechanism?
Are you sure that the CYAN part of the ink-cartridge is not empty?

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.
