The problem may be the lever that presses on the spring is not making contact when the output tray is open. But when you press on the tray it moves just enough to make enough contact so it operates. That contactor is just visible through the little opening. It may be possible to bend it carefully, ever so slightly until it works the way it supposed to. Also shine a bright light into the opening and see if the plastic part of the tray is not broken. I don't think that it should affect CD printing (if you jumped the switch) because the tray needs to be open to access the CD tray. So if the microswitch does not contact the tray nothing will work. Remember the doctor should look down the patients throat before he removes the tonsils

This is Printhead problem. The nozzles are blocked so it does not print the colors, Try replacing the Printhead

For canon you need to install the CAPT driver. Make sure you have done that. If it doesn't work try clearing your spooler file which may be causing problems. Look up guides to do that. It would be better if you could clarify what error it is.

You may have to download a new driver from Canon. Delete it first then reinstall. Also try using a different port.

Which operating system are you using?

Try reseating the print head and the cartridges. If this does not fix the problem, you will have to replace the print head or replace the printer.
