    I have the same problem with my 880 as I changed both ink cartridges and no lights are showing but I am getting blank pages. The colour went out first and then the black so I do not want to buy more ink if the printer has died. I really liked this printer as it has been reliable but getting tired of trying to repair it.

    Same exact problem. Changed cartridge, then another, and still blank pages coming out.

    printer was working fine!

    2 min. later when i changed cartridge now nothing prints. black or colors. i tried the paper towel chemical solutions of cleaning the print heads.

    I have cleaned off a lot of black and all colors, but it still prints blank pages, no matter what i try to print.

Look to make ALL of the tape is gone from the top.
if using off-brand cartridges, make sure holes wore poked in bottom. (if instructions said to do so!)

Many printers require you to print a test page and go through a process to align the new cartridge. If you haven't done this I would suggest this as your first step. This will confirm if the printer is working.

If still no joy, disconnect printer from computer, uninstall it then reinstall it. Can often save hours of messing using this method.

Canon i450 Printing issue

this clearly indicates that the printhead of your black cartridge is completely blocked and it needs internal cleaning which cannot be done by printers cleaning commands.the print head has to be removed from the printer and and then cleaned with isoprophyll and soft tissue very slowly and gently.if u dont have a technical idea taking it to the repair center is advisable.

hope this helps.....

Printer goes throught the motions of printing, but what comes out is a clean page - no ink

I had the same issue when I replaced the printer and kept the old cartridges I had just purchased. The OK button I pressed was on the PRINTER not the PC. You dont say the model printer you have. Mine is an all-in-one J6480.
