Replace the ink tanks with new genuine canon inks and start cleaning nozzles procedure from Maintenance tab on Printing preferencies.
You can try also taking out the printhead and soaking it in hot water for 10 minutes but this rarely gives good result. Air blow to dry the contacts afterwards.

    tried all i was told to do but no luck, just wont print ewt, there is a small ? mark on the printer icon at bottom of screen.. graham

    the ? mark is something different. The communication with the printer has failed. Double click the icon and delete the pendig documents. Then try to connect it to another USB port or replace the USB cable.

Won't print at all

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Runs through the motions, however, no ink to paper

If you changed the ink cartridge and the printhead......try removing the cover and make sure all the data ribbons are connected properly. The widest one that goes from the top to the main circuit board can be damaged quite easily. A pinch or hole will stop data from being transmitted from the PC to the printhead. The printer will go through all the motions but nothing comes out. Also check the rest of the plugs and cables. Canon may suggest you need a new Chassis Platen (guts). But unfortuantely, they do not make or stock those anymore. Our company bought the last of their stock. Time to look on eBay.
