Hi Adam. Welcome to justanswer.

This error code occurs when there is no ink at the print-head, which could occur when a cartridge is completely depleted or no ink is flowing. What happens when you go to insert a new cartridge, is that the printer automatically looks to run a default cleaning process, but if it finds no ink at the print-head, it will report an error

When did you change the cartridges?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
They were replaced last week. In fact the problem started shortly after that.
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Did the printer print anything with the new cartridges?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't think so.
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Where did you buy the inks from?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
From Amazon. They are genuine Canon cartridges.
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Remove the cartridges from the machine

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Can you do that when the ink is still full ?

Can you access the lcd menu of the printer?

The printer is taking up paper and jamming in rear paper feed. Error 1303. keeps on doing this even after I've removed paper from back.

Remove the power cord from the back of the printer

Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Now open the front cover and check if you can see the cartridges or not (in the front)

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok. Done
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I can see the cartridges.
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Slide the carriage to slight right. Don't push it far. Just little bit so that it remains accessible to you

Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Now see on the left side inside the printer. You will see a white plastic circular wheel. Turn that gear clockwise until it clicks. Now move the carriage towards left to the cartridge removal stage

Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Now press the blue button to remove the cartridge. Are you able to follow this much?
