My Canon 5450 has recently started to feed a second sheet of A4 photo paper near the end of the print causing part of the image to print on the second sheet. I have carried out cleaning recommendations in manual to no avail. I use 170gsm paper pictures.

Can you tell me which cleaning procedures you have already done please. Did you clean the rollers in the printer?

cleaned rollers and cassette.

Thanks Keith
Just to be sure nothing is up with the paper, have you tried a different batch of paper?

with a new box of paper it runs OK while and then starts to play up after about 5 pictures. I also used some thicker paper without trouble. I do buy a lot of paper at one time in boxes of 20 from Wilko. The problem has only just started to occur.

ok, it is either the rollers are sticking to the paper (and if you cleaned these then they would need to be replaced) or the paper is sticking.
Try to fan the paper really well (flick the edges against your hand on both sides to make sure none of them are sticking) then try printing.
Let me know the results please
