Cannon i860 printer will not print

When we try to print something the printer just shoots out blank pages. My son found my grandson playing with the printer and he had it open. Grandson is only 18 months old. I don't know what he played with or what he touched. Can anyone help me?

Re: Cannon i860 printer will not print

I don't have specific answers, but here are some steps to check things out. When you say 'just shoots out blank pages', do you mean that the print heads don't pass over the page? If they do, check you ink cartridges to see that they are properly seated. If the printer sends out a series of blank or mostly blank pages, the drivers may have become corrupt. Download the latest drivers, uninstall the printer, and install with the new drivers. If you have the latest driver, uninstall and reinstall the printer. Run the head alignment and color tests. Check your printer cable. If you have a spare, try another cable.

My cannon D680 prints a blank page after every print or copy job. the pages print fine but at the end it always feeds 1 blank page. what can it be?

See if there is an option in your settings to print a "job owner" page after each job. That's not what it's actually called but I had a similar issue with a Canon printer and found that you can have the printer automatically print a page after the job that identifies who sent the job to the printer. It's the last page so it lands on top of a finished job and separates it from other jobs sent to the printer before you have a chance to get yours. If you don't have network identifications associated with users it may just print a blank page as a separator.

Kindly check if printer cartridge have inks or not yet frozen.

Check if you're printing the exact page or there are blank pages of documents that you're printing.

Print Head Alignment test produces only a blank page.

Yes head probably clogged. You can try cleaning head multiple times, I think this is a pigment ink machine, so get only these carts for it

Canon i860 won't print deep colors

I had similar problem: everything muted and with brownish tint. Tried everything, finally discovered that I installed wrong cartridge: 6PC instead of 6C. The "photo" cartridges are pretty much the same, make sure you have the right ones: 6C, 6M, and 6Y.
