Our printer is no longer under warranty. It was purchased in December of 2005. I just changed the toner cartridge 2-3 weeks ago, we tried putting a new toner cartridge in the printer but it still didn't print. I am not sure how many pages it has printed this month so far. We are a small office, so the number is probably not very large.

Re: Printing Blank Pages - Answers to your questions
Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came withthe printer. When the software program asks you to connect theprinter to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly. Hope this helps. Bud

Run a head cleaning cycle by pressing ink button for 3 seconds or longer. Try printing after 3 cycles, if getting blank pages still. Nozzles are clog, better get a new one than having it fix, more cost effective.
Check whether the "print preview" on the screen shows blank too... Make sure the document you are printing doesn't have blank pages. You may think that it might be one page, it might be two. Somehow you may have inserted a blank page or two. Running a printer operation check If you are unable to determine the source of the problem, performing a printer operation check can help you determine whether the problem comes from this product or the computer. get more information from here....... http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100905152100AAMq5Iv
I can help you troubleshoot your printer. Just be prepared if your printer never prints again. This is rare to say the least. I just want you to know that in advance. OK? Laser printers use a static charge applied to the paper to represent your document and then this charged paper passes over the toner and finally the toner on the paper passes under a tungsten wire heated up high enough to melt the toner into the paper. This is why newly printer pages are warm to the touch. So, with three systems doing the magic any one of them can fail due to fatigue.
To start with, when was the last time you changed the toner cartridge?
How old is your printer and how many pages per month has it printed so far, on an average?
if you left your printer for two weeks or more without using, the print heads may be stuffiness. In this case (aparently yours cases) you must take your printer to a authorized service, they will can clean (with a proper fluid) or replace the ink heads, if cleaning is not possible.
