Go to the settings on your computer hit properties and do an alignment, sometimes if you take out the ink cartridge and put it back in it will say do you want to do an alighment, then after the page prints you have to scan it, then pick which one looks the best
When your printer seems to be skipping lines it's mostly because your printhead needs cleaning. This cleaning must be done ONLY by using the printer utility on the PC. If you cleaned them manually you might have damaged the ink cartridges or the printer itself. Try replacing the ink cartridges and trying again.
Note : Be sure to install the ink tanks in the correct order indicated by the label on the Print Head Holder. The machine will not print if an ink tank is installed in the incorrect position.
Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern.
If lines are missing or if white streaks appear
Print Head Cleaning.
If the problem is not resolved after performing Print Head Cleaning twice
After cleaning the Print Head, print and examine the nozzle check pattern (Step 1) again.
Print Head Deep Cleaning.
If Print Head Deep Cleaning does not resolve the problem, turn off the machine and perform another Print Head Deep Cleaning after 24 hours. If the problem is still not resolved and if you are sure that the ink didn't run out, then the Print Head may be damaged. Contact your Canon service representative.

That's about right for the amount of printing you've done before this problem started to show up.
The solution is to run programs accessed from your printer control menus.
Run first, print head cleaning... perhaps twice.
Then, run print head alignment. In this routine you get several lines printed off and you choose the number correspoinding to the set of lines that line up together the closest. Then, enter that ID number for those aligned lines. Sometimes, its good to do this twice.
You will normally want to do these two routines each and every time you replace print heads.

You need to put the test page that was printed into the scanner part of the printer and then press the scan/blue button. This is so the printer can calibrate the new ink. When you have done that the next time you turn on the printer a blank page will not be printed.
When you next change ink you will have to repeat the above procedure.
Try removing the driver from the computer and install it again. Remove the driver by going to the printers folder, click on File, select Server Properties, go to the Drivers tab and then find your printer's driver on the "Installed printer drivers:" list. Highlight it and click Remove.
Then try installing the software again.
