Re: double sided printing
Yes..this sort of thing is usually in the settings for the page, for each print job. Unless your print manager has this option, my understanding is that it's not an automatic, but a manual selection issue.

You might want to double check to make sure that your printer takes two color cartridges? If I remember correctly, the Pixma takes one black and one color cartridge? If you put a color cartridge in the black ink assembly that would cause it to stop printing.
Double check and make sure that you have one black cartridge in the correct place and one color on the other side.
I would try using something like rubber renew on the pickup rollers and make sure that the paper is being fed correctly. If this is happening then start looking at the ink.
Open the printer and remove the ink. Clean around the ink carriage and
the under the ink with alcohol and a cotton swab. Pay special attention
to areas with copper contacts. Some
printers will let you re-run a cleaning utility from their system menu or the computer printer properties. Keep
in mind too that some printers will not print correctly, even with full ink, if
the exact type of ink it expects you to have is not installed. If all else fails change out the ink, but double
check that the ink is correct against the manual or written
instructions inside the printer. Not every cartridge that fits the
printer necessarily is the right type and using the wrong ink can cause unexpected results.
1. Do you use refilled or genuine Canon cartridges?
2. Anyway, try to clean the printheads, because they seam to leak.
3. Verify if the cartridges are correct alignet (in maintenance software you have soewhere an "align cartridges" function
