Uninstall its Drivers and reinstall

As wee eddie says , reinstall drivers , unless you have already done it before you read this , run ccleaner to fully get rid of old driver leftovers , use the registry tab in ccleaner.

I have a canon ts8050 , I don't have your print problem but on some sites I get blank squares where thumbnails and adverts should be.

Print tip .... many years ago you could enlarge on screen print and you could print that exact size , due to adverts locking margins this is no longer possible.

To save paper and ink I use windows snipping tool to capture the section of the page I want then use the tools edit/paste tab , I then open up word and use copy tab . You can also stretch the pasted area to make it print bigger once it is in word.
