Hi, I have a Canon Pixma MG5300 printer. It has suddenly stopped printing. It is connected wirelessly and all ink jet cartridges are full. When I send something to the printer, it starts to work as if it is printing but a bank page comes out.

Thanks, ***** ***** the issue
It is the print head that has faulted.
We have ruled out all other causes for this.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the printer to have this replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
