Hello my name is***** look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem.
I want to warn you that it is possible you will need to replace a part in order to fix this.
There are a few different things that can cause this and a couple different parts so we would need to troubleshoot to find out for sure.
What model printer is it?

Does Cannon Pixma MG3259 sound right It uses 541 colour & 540 black

Look at the lights on the machine, they should be flashing in a pattern. Like 3 orange 1 green, or 24 orange and then pause before repeating for a couple examples.
