Re: canon wont print on glossy
This is something only Canon can answer
It seems that the perhaps the paper sensor is not
doing its job.
What Brand/thickness of glossy are you using?
May be relevant?
Check Canon tech support in the first instance this may be a replacement situation

Actually as you told that you have replaced ink cartridge sometimes ago so with the new ink the effect of primary colors is more and when you print on the high quality the effect of primary color is more. If you are printing the photos with software the try to print it on medium quality, even on low quality, The result will be fine. You can change the setting of printing in any software. After a time while when the ink will be used the result will automatically fine even on High quality.
I hope you have a clear picture in your mind.

Yeah, me too. I fiddled with cycling the power, removing and reinserting the tank, doing maintenance tasks like cleaning the jets, yadda, yadda, no dice. New full Canon tank displays empty. Boo.
I figured "What the heck, I'll try printing anyway" and sent a test page on plain paper. It warned me the tank was empty, then did a bunch of those cartridge moves it likes to do (you hear the carriage moving around cleaning or something). After like 90? seconds of cleaning noises, it figured out that the tank was full, the status went to full, and it printed the page fine.
I'm not clear on your problem but you can try this<a href="http://www.richardsnotes.org/archives/2006/05/17/canon-i9900-printer-problem-and-solution/" >Link for simular problems.</a> You may find the solution there.
this sounds like a bad black ink cart, or the fuser rolls built into the printer are dirty.
you can swap out a black cart to test that theory, you can also just print a single blank page (no text or graphics) onto a piece of glossy paper and see if there is anything there after its gone thru the printer.
if the piece of paper has stuff on it it had to come from the rollers inside the printer.
service required,unless your comfortable changing out parts in your printer.
