This answer was rated:

My Canon MG5250 stops printing in mid-sheet. I deleted all the software from my PC and allowed it to be reinstalled; I replaced a cartridge which was close to empty. It still does it. I get a message on the PC that the printer is not responding. BUT it has printed seven pages OK this morning!
Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

Can you remove the power from the printer and wait 10 minutes.
Then connect the power and restart the computer and tell me if it now prints.
Let me know the results please

the printer would not switch off so I pulled out the mains plug. I also reseated the USB plug at the PC. After ten minutes I reinserted the mains plug and switched on. It has printed two jobs completely.

ok, is it still functioning ok Tom?

Richie, two sheets don't make a summer! But I realise there's nothing much you can do. This has been a chronic problem for several months. May I come back if it recurs? Tom
