Likely your purge unit needs cleaning...
Make sure by printing out a test page from printer (not from computer).
If test page is good, you have a software issue. If test page is bad, you need to clean your head and/or purge unit.

Hi , printer need head cleaning until the black ink visible and dark black appear. Replace also the retaining tank with absorbent pudding.

Assuming that you are using original Canon cartridges or a brand of Compatibles that you have used before.
If print results are blurred, colors are faded or not printed correctly, the pint head nozzles are probably clogged.
Follow the procedure below to print the nozzle check pattern, check the print head nozzle condition, then clean the Print Head. You may have to do this 2 or 3 times.
If printed ruled lines are misaligned or print results are otherwise unsatisfactory, aligning the Print Head may improve print quality.
Caution Do not rinse or wipe the Print Head and ink tanks. This can cause trouble with the Print Head and ink
Note Before performing maintenance
Open the Top Cover and make sure that all lamps on the ink tanks are lit red.
If not, see Checking the Ink Status and take an appropriate action.
Increasing the print quality in the printer driver settings may improve the print result.

Checked ink cartridge's, two had dried out, still had ink in them but the exit apertures were blocked.
So new set of ink cartridges and problem fixed.
