It is a common issue with most canon printers.....So the advice i like to share with u is,first u need to empty the waste ink tank absorber on the printer and would like to let u know that changing to a new cartridge would not solve this problem as this has something to do with the printer and not the cartridge.
So once u empty the waste ink tank absorber (something similar to a small sponge..ie: it is the place where your excess ink goes. U should take off that ink as it has reached the maximum point of absorbing and it's unable to absorb more ink) your printer should work fine.
Hope this helps.
