1. Check for a paper jam. Paper jams occur when one or more sheets of paper become stuck in the feeding or printing mechanism. Gently remove any jammed paper and reset the printer. 2. Check ink levels. Those ink cartridges run out fast. If your printer looks like it is printing but nothing comes out on the page, you might be out of ink. Try replacing the cartridge and printing again. 3. Check for a clogged print head. If you know you have ink, the print head might be clogged. Navigate to "Control Panel > Printer > Right Click > Properties > Maintenance > Clean Cartridges" to attempt to clean the print head. 4. Reinstall printer drivers and software. If none of the above helps, try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer and software to correct possible software bugs, errors or conflicts. Canon-Specific Issues 5. Check printer drivers.

The flashing light on the printer indicates there is a problem. Make sure there is no paper jam or cartridges are properly installed. Disconnect the printer from your computer. Remove the sheets of paper from the printer. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, re-insert the cartridges (make sure the cartridges still have ink in them). Close the printer cover and check the power light. If not blinking, proceed with loading of paper. Reconnect the printer to your computer.
Make sure the print queue has no pending print jobs before sending another print job.
The solution depends on which type of printer and which model it is. Generally, you must open the access door/compartment and try to get the paper out. I had a bad paper jam last week and I had to open the access door (same access area you use to change out the ink cartridges) and do a lot of pulling and maneuvering. Don't force the paper too much or you might break the printer.
Do the cartridges ride on the printing carriage, or do they plug in somewhere else in the machine and have hoses that run the ink to the print head? If they ride on the printing carriage and the cartridge is new, there could be a short in the printer and it needs repair. Check if there's ink smeared on the print head or part of the printer. Generously clean the print heads with lots of paper towels and rubbing alcohol. If that doesn't work, to see if it's an issue with computer, print a test page from the printer, but don't send the print job from the computer. You need a print job generated from inside the printer itself. Not every printer can do this, but try pressing paper feed, holding down paper feed and power, or holding down cancel and power. If the blue lines disappear then but they didn't when you cleaned the heads, it's a software issue.
