The print heads are all gunked up with extra dried ink. Go to start, to the control panel next, to the printer, right click on your mouse and the preferences for the printer should come up and MAYBE it will allow you to clean the print heads. Not all canon's have this ability.

Prints half page


Printing half a page with an Inkjet machine is not normally a computer issue. So windows 10 would not normally have any effect on the printing for a printer that has been accepted by the Windows 10 Operating System. If there was an issue in the software it would be printing gibberish or not printing at all.

Printing half a page is quite possably something stuck in the printer stopping the ink from getting to that half a page if it is printing down once side but not the other.
Printing half a page being that the top half is printed but not the bottom half (Or the other way around) it could be an air bubble in the feed line which can be cleared with a printhead clean or two.
Printing half a line rather than a full line such as the top half of each letter is clear but the bottom half of each letter is not visable is a blocked printhead. A couple of printhead cleans can also fix this.
Also check to see if the printer is not confused and actually has empty cartridges even if the printer thinks they are full. Brother printers can easily get confused about ink levels. If the cartridges are actually empty, replace them and away it should go again.

Hope that helps

The top portion of the text in each line is not printing. I have cleaned the ink cartridge, but the problem persists.


1. Shake ink cartriage and Re-clean the print head, dripping alcohol to drain off and wipe clean w/tissue (do not touch with fingers).
2. Apply slight suction to print head to clear clogged ink (if by mouth, spit out ink and water rinse etc.).
3. Re-clean per step 1
4. Insert ink cartiriage, seating it all the way into holder.
5. Run a "cleaner sheet" through printer to clean al printing parts
("cleaner sheets" are available at office supply stores).
6. Printer should print all parts of letters.

My read out says check paper size, when i reload tray all it does is print out an old fax. I have letter in there and have gone though the trouble shooting in the manual.


Did you try clearing your remaining jobs? Fax, menu, arrow down to #2 (fax), menu, arrow down to #6 (remaing jobs)....

The top half of letters on certain lines of print are offset by about half a letter space from the bottm half of the letters. Usually but not always the same lines. help please


This usually indicates a need for a new print cartridge or the printer head is dirty. You can run the automatic printer cleaning utilities. Note: do them several times.
Also, if you are a little handy, use Qtips and rubbing alcohol and clean the print head.

You need to check your printers nozzles. Should find it under Properties of the printer and then you can select clean nozzles where you printer will clean the nozzles. Also do a Head alignement.
