My pixma ip 2000 was printing fine, with both new cartridges, all of a sudden it has just stopped putting any ink on the page....it goes through the motions of printing, but nothing comes out. No error messages or anything like that have come up.

Re: won't print at all
Could have a corrupt driver. Disconnect
the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do
both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer
to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

In short, yes. The way printers often track ink levels is by counting the number of pages printed so you have to reset this when you put in a new cartridge. As canon uses a number of cartridges be sure to do this only for the one replaced. You will get more functionality when this is done via the computer software for printing but as you don't say which O/S you are using I cannot give details.
I have the same problem. Everything on the printer is working just fine. It'll do a test page just fine, so everything's working right. The %$^ thing just won't print. It makes noise like it's printing when you give it a print job, but it spits out blank pages.
If when you print a test page it comes out perfectly, that means that the printer works, and the problem is communication between the printer and Mac.
Try the following:
Start testing a different USB cable and a different port. Unplug Mac, and eventually remove the battery. Unplug the printer power cable and USB. Put the mac back toghether and restart it with printer usb not connected. When mac is on, reinstall printer software driver, with Mac still not connected to printer, using printer disk or download. Connect printer to Mac when asked by software.
If that still does not work, test the printer on a different computer, even if it is not common, the printer may have a faulty USB port.
It should be pretty self explanitory. When you open the cover on the all in one, the ink cartridges will be on the left. Sipmly press down on the very top front of the cartridge, and you should be able to slide it out. To put the new one in, simply slide it in, and lift up gently to get it to snap back in place and voila! Now, print a test page from the OS on your computer to make sure everything is alligned properly and that your new cartridges are on their way to a brand new life of printing!
