How to Identify and Fix Common Problems ?

Sometimes there can be some left over data in your `print spooler` – the temporary area data is stored in as it is handed off to the printer. This can cause all sorts of issues with prints, including prints that only partially complete.
It`s usually because the printhead inside your printer is clogged or dried out. Like with most printers, Canon printheads can clog due to ink or dust drying up and collecting in the nozzle.
Setting Your Printer

Choose “Printing Preferences” from the pop-up menu, then look at the setup options your print driver provides. Usually, there will be one called “Layout” or “Page Layout.” Once you`ve clicked “Layout,” you should have the option to manually set your margins to zero.

Check the Margin settings under File>Page Setup to make sure that the right margin is OK. Also check the paragraph format to make sure that you do not have a negative right indent which could be causing the text to extend into an area that is unprintable by your printer.
To resolve this issue, change the default paper size of your printer: Click Start, point to Settings, and the click Printers. Right-click the appropriate printer, and then click Properties. Click the Paper tab, and then click the paper size you want to use in the Paper Size box.
After printing, trim the page down to its intended size. For instance, to achieve a full bleed 11×17, run the job on 12×18 paper, add an extra half inch all around your design (11.5 x 17.5) and trim the edges with a paper cutter such as an MBM Triumph 4315 or 5255.
This is most often caused by using paper that is damp, is of poor quality, or not designed for this machine (ie: Inkjet paper) It can also be caused by the machine not being placed on a solid, level surface, poor calibration, or uneven distribution from a low toner cartridge.
If there is plenty of ink and the printer does not print, clean the Print Head then print the nozzle check pattern to ensure ink is ejected properly. If the problem is not resolved after performing Print Head Cleaning twice, carry out the Print Head Deep Cleaning.
When the aspect ratio of the image does not match the paper size and [Borderless] is selected, part of the image will be cut off when printed. Confirm that the paper size matches the image aspect ratio before printing.
There are numerous possible causes for a printer that`s randomly producing blanks. The most common ones are empty ink cartridges, improper cartridge installation, and congested nozzles. Driver and software issues can sometimes cause this problem as well.
If the printer has been printing continuously for a long time, the print head or other parts around it may overheat. The printer may stop printing at a line break for a period of time and then resume printing. In this case, wait for a while without operation.

Canon Pixma MX882 won't print black text
ANSWER : Yeah I’m having the same problem with my Canon MX882. I’ve refilled the pigment tank, cleaned the print head and I still get no pigment black at all. I think it has something to do with the purge unit, but I don’t see any instructions on how to clean it. If I can figure it out, I’ll let you know.
