Photos come out blank (i.e. totally white)

My MP830 goes through the motions (makes the right noises,paper feeds through correctly, ink seems to be used) but there on no images on the photos. The machine does not give me any error messages.

    I am using a brand new printhead and Canon ink cartridges. I replaced my old printhead, which worked for 14 months, after the machine showed an "Incompatible PrintHead" error message. When I took the old printhead out, it appeared to have a small black spot on it (short-circuit?).

My EPSON Stylus Photo 1400 Ink Jet Printer is printing blank photos. The ink levels are fine, it's feeding photo paper fine, it's making the same noise as it does when it prints but the photos are...


Hi,

Your problems states that photos are being blank when trying to print it.
Please try these tips.

  • Make sure your printer is selected in the Print window or in the Macintosh Page Setup and Print windows.
  • The print head nozzles may need cleaning.
  • Make sure your printer software settings are set for the paper size you're using.

Plus,i also wanted to know if you can print ordinary documents or print a test page.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Did you already run the head cleaning cycle from the utility?

Unit makes every noise and motion as if printing, but pages blank


First thing is if you haven't printed for while the ink may have dried in the print head. Run it through a few (lots) of print cycles and see if that starts to bring it back to life.

Check to make sure that you have the paper thickness set close enough.

My bet would be on the print head being clogged.

Canon MP830 will not print Error code 5C10, And 5100 donaldbetty@juno.com


5C10 seems to indicate a paper jam. 5100 indicates either a paper jam or ink tanks not seated properly.

A) Paper jam: There is a rear cover on this model. Many paper jams cannot be seen from the outside. Sometimes even a scrap of paper from a previous jam will disrupt the paper path.

B) Follow your manual for installation of the ink tanks. Remove and replace the ink tanks carefully following the instructions.

C) Should these remedies not fix the problem, you can try resetting the device:

1) Press and hold the <On/Off> button until the display on the machine goes blank. (If this is unsuccessful, unplug the power cord).

2) Wait approx. 10 seconds and power back on. Wait until the printer completes its startup routine before trying another print job.

3) If solution fails, your MP 830 may require repair

You most likely have some ink residue on the pickup, feed, or registration rollers for the problem to be on the back of the page. Use a flashlight and a q-tip moistened with isopropyl alcohol to swab all of the rollers in the paper path and see where the higest concentration is. You could also try to LIGHTLY dampen a sheet of paper with alcohol and print a "Blank" page a few times with it then do the same with fresh paper.

Printer powers up, then down


Step1
If you're setting up the printer or changing the toner or ink cartridge for the first time, double-check the instructions to make sure that you installed the cartridge correctly and, for new printers, that you have removed all the pieces of cardboard or plastic packing material. 
Step
2
Check to see whether paper is feeding from the paper tray. If it's not leaving the tray at all, try feeding a page manually (if that's an option) or using a different paper tray. Sometimes a problem with the tray can be traced to a broken spring or a piece of plastic. 
Step
3
If paper is feeding from the tray but jamming in the printer, examine where the jam is occurring and then inspect the printer carefully to see if you can find what is causing the problem. A piece of paper, for instance, might be blocking the paper path. 
Step
4
If paper is feeding through the printer but coming out blank, check to see whether the printer is out of toner or ink. A defective toner or ink cartridge could be the problem.

Take it back for a full replacement, it sound like it has a few faults, why be stuck with it, you have the right to fair trading, which states your product must do wahta it should for a reasonable amount of time. Just out of box and faulting already is not reasonable!!! Hope you hace receipt.
