Canon ipP4300 refusing print jobs

Here’s a problem that arose recently. I hope somebody can help with it.

Briefly, my Canon Pixma iP4300 will print one picture and then refuse to print more unless I shut the computer down and reboot. Then it will print another picture, and I have to reboot again to print another one. I have tried a few suggestions from relatives but nothing has worked, including uninstalling and reinstalling the driver.

Then I noticed a few days ago that after a print is produced, the print job remains in the print queue and seems to block further print jobs, which pile up underneath it. I’ve tried to delete the roadblock but the usual procedure - - select the file, click on Document and then on Delete, doesn’t work on the job at the top of the queue.

Clicking on Printer, then Cancel all documents, deletes the stuck print jobs but not the one at the top.

The printer has been well-behaved since I bought it about two years ago. I have no idea what I might have done to send it off the rails. The Help files don’t help.

I’d be grateful for any suggestions.

SOURCE: Printer failing to print

start --> run --> services.msc

press enter / click on ok

scroll down to print spooler and right click on it and click on restart and then go back into printers and faxes and right click on printer and cancel all documents or delete the print job

If that fails to work you may need to use the utility that came with your printer to cancel it - short of that you can just turn the printer off for about 5 seconds and back on.

I am trying to print a document, that has some coloured text sections, all in black and white. I am using Word for Mac on a Canon ip4300 Pixma printer. But I can't find out how? Any suggestions?


Go to file, then down to print, when the print dialog comes up click on copies and pages and go down to print settings and change from color to black and white or grayscale. Hope this helps.

My ip4300 keeps printing the same page over and over again. There's nothing in the print Q, but no matter what new job I send to the printer it prints the same old page. Is there a way to reset the printer...


Have you rebooted your computer? The printer's memory is very limited -- certainly not enough to hold an entire page. Your computer feeds the printer a line at a time, so it would seem that your computer's print spooler is 'stuck' on that print job. Try shutting the computer down completely, then restarting and see if that print job clears out.

Canon Pixma IP4300 - cartridge recognition preventing any printing happening.


I seem to be having a similar problem with my cannon pixma 4300 as certain others, i have just recently replaced all the inks with " original" cannon inks and all of a sudden it refuses to print anything, it says that one of the inks is not working, ( Yellow) I remove it, replace it again and the light comes on but when the slide retracts the light seems to go off. any ideas would be great, this seems to be a fault i have read a few times.
