1) Under printer options make sure that greyscale is NOT selected. I.E. Color Printing.

2) Make sure page layout is set to 1 (Not 2 per page)

Check margins of page are set to minimum size.

The page prints to a small version in top left hand corner. everything is set to A4. Have tried all settings Have tried paper feed from back and front. Unable to get it to print a full size A4 page even...

Make sure on the Page Setup tab that the Page Layout says 'Normal-size' and not 'Poster' (poster tries to place four documents on a single printed sheet). If this is not the problem, try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer driver.

Won't print black when set for plain paper

Try removing all ink bins except black then you won't have any problems. You should also be able to go into your printer settings and select "Black and White" or "No Color" and it will print ok. Removing the ink trays is the easiest way though.

MP760 printing not at 100%

On the Printing Properties/Printing Preferences page, Page Setup tab, check and make sure that 'Normal-size printing' is selected, and that both Page Size and Printer Paper Size are set for the size paper you are using. It sounds like your settings are currently set for Scaled Printing or maybe Poster Printing.
