How can I print on both sides of paper?


Unless your printer has a "duplex" feature, you'll have to manually take the paper out, flip it over and put it back in to print on the other side.

White lines on photo


Take the cartridges out, then take the print-head out and run it under warm water for a few minutes. You could stand it in a saucer of warm water if you like - just the nozzles . Dry it thoroughly - use kitchen town and then refit it into the printer. Put the inks back in and then do some test prints.
It might take 2 or 3 goes but it should clear the blocked nozzle(s)
Inkjets like to be used - it keeps the nozzles clear.

I have plain paper in machine and haved used this paper at least 2 cases (not reams)without problem. The message on the printer states Paper mismatch. Replace transparacy paper with plain paper, Then press...


If you have the install disk, go to the program for your printer and uninstall it. Then restart the computer, it should recognize it again. Re-install the printer and it's program. That usually solves most problems when a gadget goes nuts.
Also keep a can of air around, blow out insides; sometimes there's a photocell with dust on it.

Printer keeps printing blanks...


We have found a reset that we use.
We unplug the printer and then we hold down the feed button and we keep holding down the feed button while we plug back in.
It goes through some sort of a reset and this sometimes works.

Just started printing blank pages


you may need to prime the new cartridge by "charging it" if you go to printers/faxes menu then select "printing preferences" and clcik on the maintenance tab you should have the option to do this also to reset to default settings.

Paper not feeding into the printer properly


This is usually caused by the pickup rollers. When they get worn just a little they will start doing this. You can try cleaning them with alcohol, this helps sometimes.
