I was away for a week and my printer was left on and now it prints double images.  I am self employed and need to use it!!!  HELP!!!!

AMAZING!!!  So easy but not somewhere you would look to fix it!!!

 

When I went to print something it didn't respond to CNTL P the first time so that must have been the message that something was wrong.

 

Thanks so much.

My printer is MG5460, and has started to double image on printing

pixma mg7100

 

I have the same problem, just after I had to shut down the printer and disconnect the power cord at both ends, to fix a problem with "cover open" misreads.  

 

I have MG5420

 

Seems to be black ink only in duplex printing.  Never had this problem before the last shutdown I mentioned above.
