Prints blank pages

I put in a new black printer cartridge. I have some color ink left from old color cartridge. When I try to print, the pages come out completely and absolutely blank.

    The color cartridge light was blinking so I changed the color cartridge and then the black cartridge light was blinking so i changed it as well. I tried to resume printing my document which it had done 2.5 copies moments before the cartridge lights came on and it sounded like it was printing. (The document was slides from a power point presentation that contained both color images and black text.) But, 2 blank pages came out and then 2 pages that had images but only the blue came through. Still no text. It would make sense that maybe something is causing a blockage but how do I get rid of it?

My HP C4780 PRINTER WILL PRINT A TEST PAGE BUT NOTHING ELSE. How do I get it to print?


Check the settings in Windows Print Manager.

Make sure that the paper quality matches what is in the printer. If set to glossy, minimal ink is deposited on the page. Also, check the print quality - draft quality provides a minimal amount of ink as well.

Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached. To reattach the cartridge, turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head. Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report. Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

My printer is printing blank pages


I used to have one of these printers.

1. Check the ink levels.
2. Try printing on DVD.

The C309 has a black photo cartridge.

Text prints from the regular black cartridge and pictures print from the photo black cartridge.

THe best way to tell if by checking first the ink levels and replace cartridge if necessary.

One thing you can do to check if the printer is printing is by adjusting on the Printer Setttings and printing on one color.

To do this you need to choose the color from a circular palette .

Another way is to use Word or any other processor and change the font color to blue and print it.

Hope it helps.

Try to print some more pages. The ink will take time to go down as it is not free flowing. This is due to the air beetween the new ink and the old ink, after some printing the air is push out and then you can have a clear print.

No ink output from Epson Stylus Color 777


I don't have an answer for you but I have the exact same problem.

I have an Epson Stylus Color 777 and I put in new cartridges (black and color) that I bought yesterday (03/05/10).

I pulled the tape off the cartridges and inserted them in their carriages. Everything works like usual except that no ink at all prints on the page. Comes out completely blank.

Only prints color--black ink is full, just put in a new cartridge


Instead of trying to change or find a "setting", the fastest resolution is to uninstall and reinstall the Printer, If not sure how, click start, click control panel, on the left of the window if you see switch to classic view, click there, IF XP, click Add/Remove Programs, if VISTA, click programs and features, remove all entries and reinsert install disk and repeat setup

Black Cartridge Not Being Used While Printing


try printing in monochrome mode or gray-scale mode, and specify that it use only the black cartridge.

another problem could be that the head have gotten dry, remove the cartridge, get a soft cotton towel, wet it with a little bit of water, put the head of the cartridge (where the ink comes out from) on the cotton towel, you will see some ink come out of the cartridge, if yes, then put the cartridge back into the printer, and give it a try.

if not try to blow some air into the cartridge as if doing CPR ;) to the cartridge, this will help the ink get out of the cartridge.

if all this fails, get a new cartridge, as sometimes the head could have gotten damaged.

good luck

Printing not complete


you may check your ink cartridge
1) the cartridge some color almost empty, need to change a new one or refill the match color ink. test it and go next if not fixed
2) long time less using cause some color ink chanel(holes) dryer, you may take out the color ink cartridge and put it's surface of bottom (just touch ) in the clean water 1 Hr, then set back and test it. still not fixed, you also need to do same thing if your print head is separated from your ink cartridge
