Canon MG5350 Printer - shouldn't do this!

Aft'noon Chaps, Just purchased this recently - a few times now I've sent print jobs which it will start, but stop after a few moments - wasting ink/paper etc. Why would it do this, d'ya know? REALLY getting on me nerves!!

It pauses to do print head cleaning half way through a print job? or do you mean it only prints half the page and then ejects it?

HiYa Lotvic, no - prints only part of a page then ejects. Been onto Canon support, they suggested the printer was too far from router (next room, about 16 feet as the 'crow flies'.

Just bought it to within 6 feet of router... works perfectly. HOW ANNOYING is that? lol. Looks like I'll need to re-site it in the LOUNGE then... not the best of places...

Many thanks for your time,

Particularly with all those crows flying about.lol.

Can you not just run an Ethernet cable to it, I assume you are wireless printing which is causing the problems.
