PIXMA G6020 prints an inch and then restarts printing


I have windows 11, purchased the Canon G6020 December 1st, drivers are up to date.  The problem I'm having is about 30 to 40 percent of the time I print anything the first page it prints stops after printing about an inch then restarts printing.  I checked the system printers and found two copies of the driver listed.  I removed the one that said (copy 1) and it seemed to start printing correctly but then a couple weeks later the (copy 1) printer appeared again and the problem started again.  I'm guessing I need to figure out how to permanently delete the (copy 1) printer to correct the problem but i'm not sure where/how to do that.  any guidance would be appreciated.   Thanks,  Dan

How is your G6020 connected and to what?  (Wired, wireless, USB)?

To remove the G6020 (copy1) try the following:

Windows Start Button > Settings > Select Bluetooth and Devices in the Nav Pane > Then Devices > Scroll down and click More Device and Printer Settings

When the dialog opens, find the copy1, right-click and select remove device from the context menu.  Restart your computer.

 There might be an additional step depending on your reply.
