Question about Epson Stylus C46 InkJet Printer
I have recently renewed the cartriges so there is plenty of ink
I just recently experienced this same problem and was of course perplexed. I began my troubleshooting with the printer itself to determine whethter or not I could at least get a test page printed which I was able to do. This rules out bad cartridges or bad printer. By deductive reasoning I was able to determine that the printer was still in communication with the computer otherwise it wouldn't do one thing when I hit the print button. Finally I opened up my task manager and noticed my total memory being used at the time was 2.9 gigs out of a maximum of 3.5 gigs since that's all Win XP recognizes period. The majority of that memory usage was for web pages which I closed but the memory was still not released. I then turned of the computer and the printer and restarted them both and Viola!!!, it prints again. I summized that within the intricate workings of the Win XP OS it no longer had enough memory to store the print queue thereby causing a blank page to just pass through the printer printless. I hope this helps.

Even when you change your ink sometimes you get dried up ink in the feeder lines take your ink cartridges out, take a damp cloth and wipe over the tiny holes were cartrides go, replace cartridges and press down several times firmly about 5-6 times on each cartridge that should start ink flowing
