Re: Printer prints blank pages

I too have had some of the same problems. It worked great while it worked. Then i started printing crazy, I kept cleaning it, but it slowly got worse untill it just went throught the motion but only blank pages came out! I searched on the internet and found that it might have a bad print head and that this was an expensive repair. I lso saw that it was a very common issue appearing in these printers. I have taken the printer to several places to be repaired and all tell me they cannot find what is wrong with it and that I pretty much have an expensive boat anchor.
I also tried Epson technical support and they were useless!!!!
My next printer will not be an Epson.
I did find on the Epson site where they will send you a free shipping lable to recycle the thing if that is any consolation, but I keep seeing them repairing it and reselling it as reconditioned to stores like Fry's Electronics.

Don't waist mony repairing this - it can't be repaired. Try selling it as-is on eBay for a few bucks.

Re: Printer prints blank pages

I have the same problem, I am told the print head is clogged. there is several products on the market for cleaning them, but none of them seem to work for everyone. including mine.

I found a website selling new print heads for it, but its the same price as the printer was.

I'm throwing it out and buying a HP. which I should have in the first place.

My computer is reading the printer,and it stating that ink cartridge is full but the page is blank after printing

The print-head part of the cartridge is probably clogged / dried up. Remove the cartridge and wipe with a link-free rag dipped in rubbing alcohol. Wipe several times until ink appears to be flowing from the print-head and reinstall. Do the alignment / and cleaning routines if needed and try to print.

I have installed a new ink cartridge and the z645 printer. It sounds and acts like it is printing, but the page is blank. After I first installed the new cartridge, I printed a test page, but only about 2...

Doing the "clean printhead/cartridge nozzles" multiple times would have cleared clogged nozzles. You can also try to manually wipe the cartridge nozzles with a slightly moistened soft cloth. If that still won't help, try to replace your cartridge with a different known working cartridge to determine if your other cartridge is faulty.

All the pages I print are blank. There is sufficient ink the print preview shows the image but the actual print out is blank

Sounds like your print heads are clogged. This is quite common. Go into your printer's menu and find the maintenance menu and follow the steps to clean your print heads. Run the process everal times until the prints are 100%. Then run a printhead alignment. Regardless of whether your not your ink is full, if cleaning the heads several times does not solve the issue, put new ink cartridges in because you may have bad cartridges. If that doesn't work, you've got bigger issues, contact the manufacturer.

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.

Won't print(after changing cartridges

blank pages and bad print are not the same problem. Regarding costly ink, a epson printer tech told me once that the secrete to cleaning a bad print head was to run deep clean 7 times in a row and then a head test and it has worked for me several times on other printers (not an expert here, just personal experience).

Additional note, I have seen both cleaning chemicals and cleaning cartridges on the web, example, searching google for one for my printer I would search for cc-bci-6c which is for a canon cyan cleaning cartridge. Don't know if they work but in case it helps.. good luck.
