Question about Canon PIXMA MP780 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I am no longer able to print anything from the computer (using WinXP, Canon MP780). The printer will print about the first inch of the page, and then the rest of the page is just blank. What's worse, is that it continues to spit out blank pages until I manually cancel the printing. I tried uninstalling the drivers, rebooting and reinstalling but that didn't help. I can print nozzle check and head alignment pages just fine. Copy, scan and fax appears to work fine as well. ''Print Test page'' or any page printed from the computer does not. Can someone out there rescue a damsel in distress?
I had this problem printing out photos with my ix6520. Ended up the resolution was wayyyyy too high on the photo, like 16439 PPI and I lowered it to 300 PPI and it then printed just fine. Probably wasted some ink not knowing it sooner, definitely wasted some time.

If the printer works ok on another PC, it seems quite clear that the problem is definately software (Driver) related. If you haven't done so already, I recommend adding the printer through the Printer\Faxes Add Printer Wizard and pointing it to take the drivers off the install CD (if you have one) rather than installing the printer from the CD Autorun. Just make sure that you've deleted the printer completely from Printers\Faxes and rebooted before each install attempt.
I hope this helps!
