It could be your print quality is set too high!
Go to Printer and Faxes in Control Panel!
Right Click on your printer and select properties
On the General Tab click on Printing preferences!
Look for something that Says quality or graphics or something like that!
If its set to high quality then set it to normal
If its set to normal then try draft!( but if you need to do this then there is an underlying issue!)
Try this and get back to me!

If you have gone through the process of cleaning and deep cleaning, as described by canon, and you still get no ink flow after printing 2-3 pages, the print head needs to be replaced.
Here is WHO to contact and HOW to install the print head:

HOW: Install the print head and ink tanks correctly iP4000/iP4000R/iP5000
Seat the print head
Below is the procedure for seating the print head and ink tanks:
Power on the printer.
Open the paper output tray and top cover.
Note: Gently open the paper output tray while holding it.
After confirming that the print head holder has moved to the center, open the inner cover.
Remove the orange tape securing the print head lock lever, and raise the print head lock lever.
Note: If the top cover is left open for more than 10 minutes, the print head holder will move to the right. If this occurs, close the top cover once and then re-open it.
Remove the print head from its package and remove the orange protective cap.

Note: To avoid any damage, do not touch the print head face's nozzle area, electrical contacts, and ink supply filters. After removing the protective cap, set the print head into the print head holder immediately. Do not re-attach the protective cap after it has been removed.
Set the print head into the print head holder, and lower the print head lock lever until a click sound is made.
Next, install the ink tanks.
Remove the cyan ink tank (BCI-6C) from its package. Pull the orange tape in the direction of the arrow to remove the wrap film completely.
Note: Remove the orange tape completely. If the orange tape is not completely removed, it may interfere with printing.

Close the inner cover and top cover.
Note: Check that each ink tank is installed in the correct position:
