If it feeds fast, there may be dust or dirt on a sensor. Compressed air or a vaccuum might help.

If it feeds at a normal pace, you might be out of ink / ribbon / toner.

My Canon Pixma MX882 is not printing though lots of ink. Paper goes through when I press print on my PC but nothing is printed


Print a test sheet to see if the printer is OK. If tthe sheet prints fine has this printer worked on this computer before? Did you change anything or update anything? You may have the wrong driver installed or the cable could be defective if it has worked before.

HP LaserJet 4L quit working It's connected to my PC and it's on. All 4 lights are on; 2 green and 2 orange. When I try to print, the paper goes through but nothing is printed on the paper.


Empty cartridge maybe?
Otherwise it's simple: selt-test page(by printer button) printed ok - it's outer problem. Self-page is blank - it's inner problem. And so on... use Golden Section method

The printer isnt working keeps telling me printing complete


Follow the steps below to fix the problem:
1. Align the print cartridges (open the Lexmark Solution Center on your computer > from the Maintenance tab, click Align to fix blurry edges > click Print) 2. Clean the print cartridge nozzles (open the Lexmark Solution Center on your computer > from the Maintenance tab, click Clean to fix horizontal streaks.) 3. Remove and reinsert the print cartridges. 4. Wipe the print nozzles and contacts using a slightly moistened soft cloth to clean it from dirt or clogs.
Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

My dad has Kodak 5500 series printer that will scan and copy fine but when it prints the paper goes through but nothing prints on the paper. Any ideas?


If the printer has been sitting idle for a long time, it is possible the jets on the cartridge have gotten plugged. Try running a cleaning cycle on the printer a few times and see if that helps. If not, try replacing the cartridges.If it only has this issue when trying to print from a computer, reinstall the drivers for the printer and try printing again.

Acts like it's printing, ink is good, but nothing prints out on paper.


Nothing at all? Poor you are. The pump may damage or lost electricity.

Nothing prints out on paper.


Did you remove the little sticky tabs from each new cartridge? They allow air in, and ink out.

Have you removed the tear off tape from top of cartridges, it lets the air in and ink flows.

Will not print


Try printing a test page from the printer. If you have the same problem, your cartridge is cloged or bad.
