B209a printer prints blank pages: test, diagnostic, word, etc. I have run all kinds of tests and printer is functionable, but pages are blank.


Check to be sure that the tape on the inkjet cartridges is pulled off. They come with tape to prevent them from drying out before you buy them. This tape needs to be removed before the cartridges can be used. If the tape is removed, have the cartridges been sitting in the printer without being used for months? Maybe the cartridges are dried out. You can try soaking the cartridge's print heads (the bottom shiny part that is rectangular (box) shaped, but not the electrical contacts) in rubbing alcohol overnight. Then re-install and see if they work. If not, you need new cartridges.

Reading no paper paper tray is full


Instructions
  1. Check the display for an error message. If the display reads "Clearing paper from printer," the engine has detected a jam and is attempting to eject the jammed pages automatically. These pages will often be blank.
  2. Check the display for "Performing PRINT/STOP TEST" or "Performing SERVICE TEST." Either of these messages indicates that the printer is going through a test procedure that may eject blank pages.
  3. Reduce the amount of paper in the input tray if the printer is feeding multiple blank sheets at a time. The printer will pull extra pages through if the input tray is overfilled.
  4. Replace the paper in the input tray with the correct size if needed. If the 4600 printer detects the paper as an incorrect size for the print job, it may eject the paper without printing anything on it.
  5. Replace the ink cartridges if certain colors are blank on the page. Replace the black cartridge if printing a black text document that is coming out blank. The printer may attempt to print even if the ink level is low or empty, but will unable to print anything on the page, causing it to come out blank.
  6. Remove the sealing tape from newly installed cartridges. The tape covers the print heads and should be removed before installing the cartridges. If the tape is left on, it will prevent ink from getting on the pages as they print.
  7. Press the "Check mark" button on the control panel to enter the printer menu. Run a diagnostic so the printer can attempt to determine the cause of the blank pages printing. Press the up or down arrow to select "Diagnostics." Press the "Check mark" button. Press the "Down" arrow to highlight "PQ Troubleshooting." Press the "Check mark" button. The printer runs a diagnostic and returns to a ready state when done.

My printer is printing blank pages. The test print prints all the colors though. But when I print a document all I get is a blank page. I just installed a new color cartridge.


Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached. To reattach the cartridge, turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head. Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report. Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

I am trying to print a document however nothing is printing. I have placed new ink cartridges within and the printer takes in the paper and the noise suggests it is printing and recognising the text within...


First thing I always check is the last thing that I did... so ..i fi t worked prior to replacing the ink cartridge/s ..and you replaced them,... did you: peel off the protective tape from the cartridge before installing them? Did you install them correctly.. meaning are they properly seating into the printer and making proper electrical contact with the printer connector? Lastly, are you sure you have the correct ink cartridges installed? After verifying all those things, try printing a test page by going to the control panel..then printers... then select that printer shown with the right mouse button ... and properties in the popup menu for that printer.. it should allow you to 'print a test page'... you may also have a loose cable ( usb or parallel connector ) not seated right between the priinter and the computer... Hopefully, one of the suggestions listed above will get you going... Good Luck..

Hi. Printer isn't working, paper comes out blank.


Most likely the printhead is clogged. Another possibility is that the cleaning station does not work. 3 ways the printhead can clog,

1. Using Generic Ink
2. Not using the printer for a long time
3. Print a large print job after the ink indicator says the inks are running low.

You are better off replacing the unit than trying to get the printhead unclogged. Cost is usually around $40 and is only a 65% chance it willwork.

thanks

Hi,

To isolate the exact cause of this issue please print a self test page and check whether the same issuse persists.

Print Self test page:
Please click here and follow the instructions to print a self test page.

If test page is not printed properly then clean cartridge contacts and nozzles.

If issue still persists then replace the cartridges.

My printer is printing blank pages What is wrong?


You may clean the cartridge by following the steps given below:

1. Remove the cartridge or cartridges from the printer.
2. Get a damp paper towel.
3. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.
4. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean.
5. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
6. Snap the cartridges back into the printer.

Next, I'd like you to attempt this printer self-test by following the steps given below:

1. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer.
2. Press and hold the button on the printer panel.
3. Reconnect the power cord and keep holding the button on the printer panel until the printer starts to pull paper.
4. The printer should now print a test page. Please note that the test is continuous. To stop the test, disconnect the power cord.

The self-test should at least print out a set of either black or color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously). Should this test fail, try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with only the color cartridge installed. (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.

If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, let us know.
