I had a similar problem. Are you sure that the head in back in contact with the paper. There is a small blue slider button on the head. It should be pushed to the right for printing and to the left in order to free any paper that gets stuck. With ours it looks like someone freed some paper then never put the slide back so that the head and paper were in contact.
Once that was done we had a major cleaning task to do because the printer hadn't actually printed for a while but that is another story.

SOURCE: Canon MP500 Printing Problem
I had same problem today. Removed print head and bathed it in alcohol for half an hour. Then I removed the two screws underneath and used a syringe to squirt alcohol into the ports and clean. I noticed clumps of ink coming out (i guess some ports were blocked). I then dried the head and reinserted and reinstalled ink tanks. All looks good so far- black printing again and printed test patterns all look correct. Good luck.

I replaced the Office Max ink substitute with an original Canon ink. This did not help. I decided this problem most probably had to be a printer head issue, so I gave up and bought a new printer instead.

1. Get compressed air
2. Run Printhead under HOT water, do not worry about contacts getting slightly wet.
3. Blow compressed air with straw attachment into screens where the cartridge nozzle sits on printhead. then let it sit and dry.
4. reinstall print test page
5. if this fails open paint/photoshop and print a page of the color that is not printing correctly. rinse and repeat until colors flow freely.
I have several ip4300s and I have yet to give up the ghost on a printer with a clog ujsing this method.
