When printing on my Canon MP730, it beings the process as normal, I will hear the usual spooling sounds, etc. Then it prints out maybe a line or two of the document and stops completely, only to finally finish the job 30 minutes to an hour later ... maybe. The same happens whether on a B&W or heavily colored doc.
What to do???
Is the issue the same with a anormal text document or just with heavily colored docs?
If the text doc gets printed fine, then it is an issue with print spooler and we might need to work on that.

Theres a few things you can do, HP normally makes you install a slew of programs with the driver, see if you can find the program called something like "HP Scan" and try to use that to scan things. If that does that work, reinstall the driver.
Hope that helped!
Unclip it again and clean contacts on both printer and cartridge with a lint-free paper and a little alcohol (isopropyl alcohol if you have it). Clip it back and run the head cleaning and alignment routine; that should be enough.
You could either kick it or try this (less expensive) trick:
Click "start" and go to "Run"
Type "services.msc" at the prompt which will open the Services window (ooh, pretty...)
Scroll down the alphabetical list in the right window pane until you come to the entry with the name "Print Spooler"
Right-click this entry, then select "stop". This will stop the computer running the process that holds your print queues.
Leaving that window open for now, click again on "Start", and then click "My Computer" to open a Windows Explorer window.
We've stopped the queue service, now we just have to clear the jam that is already there. To do this we navigate to the print spool folder which is hiding within the Windows folders. Usually Windows is installed on C: drive, but you should be easily able to tell when the Explorer window opens which drive it is on.
The usual path to the spool folder is C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS, but yours may be slightly different. Your windows drive may have another name for instance, but this would be uncommon. So click on your Windows drive (usually C), then double-click on the Windows folder, and then find the System32 folder and double-click on that. Windows may warn you that you are about to view system files, but click "View files anyway" message and search out the "spool folder". Within the Spool folder is your Printers folder, and you should open that.
Delete every file within this folder to empty the jammed print queue (pressing the "ctrl" and "a" keys will select all files and then you can just hit "delete").
Close the explorer window now that we have emptied the cleared spool files, and return to your Services window. we must re-start the Print spool service, and do so by right-clicking the Print Spool entry and selecting "Start" from the list. Close the services window and try printing again
You may need new print heads. They are around $50. Or, you could do this: Take the print head out of the printer, and run warm water from the tap (not high pressure), over the ports for about 5 minutes. Ink will drop out of the jets. Dont touch the electrical contact end of this head. This may clean the head enough so it works again. If not you need a new print head.
sounds like you have an empty ink catridge. even though the catridge doesn't look complete empty the sensor can decide it is and won't work until you change the cartridge. You might want to remove and reinsert all of the cartridges making sure they are in the proper slot and properly setted.
Have you tried doing some maintenance like nozzle check,printing head alignment,clean the nozzles if not then try it by going into control panel - printers and faxes - where you see your mp730 right click and go to properties then click on the last tab which would be maintenance.Try those options if none worked then u might have to replace you print head and that should work
