Problem with Garodcfilter Error : 3000 iPF6400

I made a print yesterday on my Canon iPF6400 which was a little light and flat, so I corrected the settings in Photoshop 6. When I hit print, it did not send any data to the printer. I checked the printer icon and saw that the print was stopped; I was getting a garodcfilter Error: 3000 (see screen print).
 
I went to Canon's support website, updated all my hardware and drivers, and tried again with the same results. I did some research and many of the people with the same problem said to make sure the Fast Graphic Process box is unchecked on the Main Print Layout dialog box. It wasn't checked, so I tried again and the same error message.
 
I haven't been able to print since yesterday due to this error, and it is very frustrating, especially since it happened after immediately being able to print.
 
I've attached some screen prints from this problem...I run MacOS High Sierra 10.13.6 on a 27" iMAC and Photoshop 6.
Please let me know how this problem can be resolved.
Serge

Patrick,

It is now able to print; however, it keeps selecting ROLL paper even though I manually load a sheet of ISO A3+ paper (13"x19"). The only way it will print manual sheets is if I change the paper setting to ISO A3+ for paper tray (Large Margins). Unfortunately, that setting gives me margins that are TOO LARGE for my precut mats (11.5x17.5 opening).

I've gone through the layout setting/page setup multiple times. It holds my preferred setting until I hit print; at that point, it tells me I need to use roll paper.This is so frustrating as you can well imagine.

I have a similar problem as above and followed instructions. I have an ipf6400, 2015 iMac with Mojave 10.14.6.

 

I cannot get the replacement printer Driver (Drv-MacX10-520) to load so I can add it. I'm sure I'm making some small mistake but I can't figure it out.
