Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question. 1. you could turn this difficult case over to Canon Servicing.or2. you could replace this chronically troublesome printer.or3. if it is less than a year old, turn the whole problem over to Canon Servicing, free of charge, under warranty. When the printer demands stuff that goes in a circle like that, it is a bad sign, just as it would be with people. Therefore, one thing is certain:Try *one* printhead cleaning. Just one.If it demands more, the question is: are you using true Canon-OEM-made ink supplies? or, are you using 'canon-compatible' or refilled or remanufactured ink supplies? if the ink is not Canon-OEM-genuine, then it may be causing trouble.
