How long does it usually take for a canon mp750 printer to clean itself? I've been printing fine but suddenly after I print pages the ink is missing some spots. So I do a clean and leave it for a an hour or two it's still cleaning...

That's as common as rocks with inkjets, especially if Copy doesn't produce visible output. Fortunately the clean cycle gets results pretty often. You need to heed the printer humidity spec. and follow the manual's further actions for when 'Clean Head' doesn't work (typically cleaning its bedding and/or running some rubbing alcohol through via a handy empty cartridge.) See your local ink refiller if you want a friend to lean on for cleaning cartridge fiddling.
Several things cause that, print quality settings, good, better, or best. In draft mode all is lighter. Generic inks are sometimes not as dark as Canon inks. The printhead wears out as well and the black is usually the first to go. A couple drops of water on the pads where the printhead parks will help to clean the printhead and flush out dried ink from the cleaning pads.
Common problem with this (and other) canon printers. I usually just
lift the cover and lift the highlighted tank out and put it back in,
sometimes I have to do that 2 or 3 times before it will let me print.
If lifting that tank doesn't do it, try lifting all the tanks and
putting them back. Eventually you will get a message that the tank you
are refilling is empty (even if it's full). When that happens, press
and hold the "stop/reset" button for 5 seconds (this is from Canon)
then you will get a message that Canon will not be responsible for
damage to the printer because you are using different ink than theirs (just ignore it). You can also try cleaning the contact points on both ink cartridge and on printer w/ cotton swab lightly dipped in alcohol.
I had a similar problem. I put in a new ink tank but did not seat it properly. When I tried to print nothing came out. Worse yet, apparently it burned out those jets in the print head! A new print head fixed my problem. I got it on eBay and am very satisfied.
Sounds like a driver configuration. Go to control panel, then printers and right-click properties on the Canon icon, try reverting to default print settings or make sure you are not forcing color printing. Lastly, try printing from a simple program such as notepad - maybe your software inputs color to the printer.
Big nozzle clean up session.
Run the correction software.
Remove the cartridge[s] and assuming they are full[ish] stand it/them nozzle down on a damp tissue.
If this model is head in cartridge, make sure the contact film is clean and undamaged
