Sounds like a software issue, uninstall printer driver, restart, load software with the usb cable unplugged, software will prompt for connection to device

Can use a glossy paper?

If the glossy paper is rated for the printer you are using yes. Never use paper that is only rated for inkjet in a laser printer. Many special inkjet papers have coatings that will melt or break down due to the heat of a laser jet and may damage your printer.

What they mean by change Fuser?

There are a few more parts that are needed for a Laser printer to work than a inkjet. the fuser is a component that literally superheats the ink and "fuses" it with the paper once the powder in has been laid down. It needs to be replaced when it cant properly fuse anymore;
I reccomend you contact their tech support to properly resolve this issue

navigate here

down at the bottom where it says "contact customer service", select "Multi-function center (MFC and DCP series)" and give them a call.

Printer will not print: Canon imageCLASS D320

The paper size selected in the menu system must match the paper size in the rec. (recording) paper tray. If you have 'letter' size paper in the tray and the menu system is set for 'A4' paper you will get this message. Either put A4 size paper in the tray, or change the paper size in the menu system to 'letter'.
