It may have lost track of where the head is, even though it calibrates when starting up. (Like when you remove jammed paper forcefully).
First check: make sure the front flap used to print a cd is closed - it tends to come loose easily.
If that isn't the problem, then:
Switch the printer on. When the head comes in view, remove the power plug. Then move the head all the way to the left. Close the cover. Put the power plug back in and switch on.

A support tech at Canon suggested I try this.

find the file ImageCache.ic - I found it in application data folder in My Documents, delete it.

Uninstall CD Label Print, search for any other "CD Label Print" files or folders and delete them too.

Re-boot and re-install CD Label Print.

This worked for me. Hope it works for you too.

Cheers
OM

SOURCE: Canon ip4300 color ink empty but I only want black

No, Canon does not have this facility. Also mostly greyscale is not light black but rather a mixcture of the 3 primary colours. You should have a reset/resume button on the printer - hold this in for a slow 5 seconds to de-activate ink warnings per cartridge that is giving alarms. Proceed carefully and only print text that is black so that the colour printheads do not burn out.

SOURCE: canon IP4300 flashes orange and green

Try keeping the paper only in the bottom tray (there's a tray in the bottom) Try pulling any paper out of the top and just close that top tray. Open up the head so that u can see the ink cartridges and turn the printer on and off and maybe it will center itself again. If it's still not working (even if lights aren't red and print head wont align in the center) try manually moving the head back and forth like 18 times so you can lubricate that rail in the back that's holding it. After that, re-turn it off and on again.

The orange light on pixma iP4300 is flashing 5 times. I have cleaned the printhead (gold contacts) with alcohol PJ


Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water or a mixture of hot water and isopropyl alcohol
Use it to clean the print head and the electronic contacts on each ink cartridge
Once done, allow to dry and try again
If the error still persists, you have a damaged print head which needs to be replaced with a new one
Hope this help!

CANON ip 4300 - 5100 error & prints skew onto DVD


I had this eror. It was caused by indexing error left to right.Would print some then cancel after starting to make clunking and left to right error gets to large.(white edge up the side of full page print).
There is a toothed print head carriage drive belt and a clear indexing strip above the heavily white greased bar behind print head carriage.
If this clear indexing strip gets grease or anything else on it the print head cannot index.
With print head at full right position,power off, I carefully wiped the clear strip by pinching between clean dry fingers and wiping up and down the strip a few times,maybe use cotton wool buds and IPA or methalated spirit if you can't get your fingers in there without breaking the strip. then with power on print head in change cartridge position,push carriage to far left and wipe right side of clear strip.I pushed carriage full left to right a few times,Then ran print head alignment.Fixed without taking apart.
