Does the Printer have its own separate Utility in your Applications folder? It may need to be running to address the queue from system preferences (even if waiting for paper). I don't use the Canon printers, so I can only offer general suggestions, sorry. I do realize you have probably tried this. Have you looked up similar problems at Apple? [discussions.apple.com...]

There is a Utility App but it has nothing that addresses this problem. A reset usually involves a combination of key presses using the on/off switch and the stop/reset key... but there isn't anything in the manual or in that Utility app.
Frustrating to say the least.

The Utility app is not related to the printer, it is for your system. What I meant was to ask whether you have a Canon supplied app for the printer in your Applications folder, sorry for the confusion. I use Epson printers and there is an Epson folder and an Epson Printer app in the apps folder to manage them, that's why I thought you might have the same kind of thing for your printer.

But you can generally get to the printer's own utility apps if you keep clicking everything in sight and following all possible links from System Prefs ;)
Admittedly I am more familiar with printers that forget their entire queue if you have to straighten the paper on the printer's own request.

Some printers have an on board buffer. You'll need to clear this. How to do that for this particular printer I cannot say (don't use Canon products).
Had an HP product that acted the same way some time back. Had to remove the printer memory, power up. Shut it down. Put the memory back in. Cleared it.

an extended time left unplugged should do the trick...its not like it has battery back up keeping the memory alive.
give it a while for all the caps to discharge and die and it should be fine.

With the HP 2200, shutting the printer off is the only thing I've been able to do. Powering down and waiting a slight interval clears the memory. My worry has always been creating a paper jam... but the paper path is simple enough that I've never had a problem.
