It appears that the print head nozzles are blocked, it is difficult to clean, it may be cleaned with a ultrasonic cleaner. Most likely you will need to buy a new print head, these are not cheap and you may find it better to buy a new ink jet prnter.
Inkjet printer heads tend to block up if used infrequently, inkjet printers should be run/used every several days to prevent nozzels blocking. If this is your case and you only want to print black & white, I suggest you get a laser printer. It is cheaper to run and don't suffer from infrequent use.

Run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles, to get the black ink flowing through the ink-jets inside the print-head.

Some printers REQUIRE an "alignment" step every time you change the ink-cartridges.
It only takes a few minutes, and it prints one or two pages of paper.

My 5500 printer is printing blank pages - can you help?


Hi

Does the ink cartridges are new or old? How long did you stop printing? Because if you stop printing for a very long time, the ink dries up and you need a little cleaning for the print head. Remove the ink cartridges and rub the print head into a plain paper with alcohol until ink flows and the run the cleaning maintenance like print alignment or print nozzle.

Please let me know if you need more help.

Printer prints blank pages


The print head is a part of the printer itself and unlike other printers, you cannot remove it or soak it without ruining your printer. So just try the print head cleaning option and perhaps replace cartridges, especially if you are using a third party or refilled cartridge which can clog even if it is full.

Canon i965 prints blank pages


Yes those printheads do go bad, they burn out just like a light bulb. If you emptied cartridges then the purge/cleaning assembly is working properly, and the only other option is the expensive printhead.

Canon iP90 stopped printing in BLACK


hi... it might be that you need some time to let the ink absorb into the pads in the print heads ... this can take between a few hours and a day... Must be frustrating to deep clean three times and just seem that you are wasting ink cartridges, my "solution" would be to give it time or possibly clean the print heads manually.. hope it will solve it out..

thank u!!

Blank paper comes out


Please clean the print head for 3 to 6 times and after each cleaning print a nozzle pattern to verify if the cleaning is successful or not. After 3 to 6 cleanings and issue still present, reinstall ink cartridge. By doing all those steps and issue still present - the print head is clogged badly by dried inks or contaminants. If your printer is under warranty - I suggest call your printer's manufacturer and ask for replacement if not decide whether sending it to service center is cost effective or buying new printers.

Hi, I haven't used my Canon S330 printer for some months, and when I plugged it in just now, it wouldn't print. I replaced both cartridges, and still no printing. The cartridge moves fairly quickly back...


in the print head there are hundreds of minute holes from where the ink of the cartridge comes out when you remove the head check whether the ink is coming from the holes in the head .if the ink is not coming the head may be dry and if the very less ink is coming then some of the holes are blocked. the ink has to come out from that holes for printing.

thanks.

Blank printout


If you are able to drag out your users manual, most lazer printers have a self cleaning process for the head, which takes around 3-5 minutes to complete, after that try to run a test page to ensure the colors are working fine.

Failing that, unless the printer is brand new, and or unless it has been sitting ( unused - regardless of age ) the print heads can dry out leaving a blockage ... hence, no ink, hence blank page.

The only other suggestion after running a Print head clean, would be to replace or refill the ink cartridges.
