    I am having the same issue. The only odd thing was that is started after an brief power outage. It is on a surge protector as is the computer connected to it. The computer seems ok. The printer prints the first 5 cm or so, then form feeds to the next page. Sometimes it finishes the rest of the first page, including the footer. on the second sheet.

    Same problem, the printer doesn't have any memory resource. So if the photo or document is large and your computers resources are low, being used by other systems, then this Will happen. I have tried many fixes and found best solution, make sure you have plenty of system resource free.

    Me too! My iP4300 prints 5mm, feeds the sheet thru, then prints 20mm on the next sheet, etc. Sometimes it even mixes up the colors on the second sheet!

Pixma IP4300 has just stopped putting ink on the sheets. It responds to commands to print, but only blank sheets come out. All ink tanks are in working order. Help, please!!

You print head nozzles may be clogged, and in need of cleaning. Please go to the Canon support site here, choose the support tab, enter 'prints blank pages' in the search, and follow the instructions for solutions for your printer in the results. (see 2 first). If that doesn' resolve the problem, go to step 3, etc.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Can't I print with only one black ink

I have a similar machine ip5000. Currently have a problem getting the big one to print and have posted for a solution elsewhere. If I print withjust the small tank it does some black work i.e. type but it needs the other big tank to give full photo pictures.

If you are just looking to print typing try changing your font collour to a dark blue or other. This gets round the black problem but you will need the 2nd black cartridge for full colour work.

Hope this helps.
