Is the colour adjustment set to auto?

start the status monitor in properties>maintenance tab, and see how your ink levels are. Have you installed ink and not reset the counters?

I don't suppose you have PRINT TO FILE enabled?

It may be that the print head has dried out, seems a common problem with certain Canon printers especially if not used for a while. I sorted mine my taking the print head out and soaking it in a saucer of lukewarm water and giving it a good clean, dry out using paper towels and then run a deep clean with a new cartridge. I make sure to print something weekly. Also see this post click here
