    both printers have ink newly installed.

    I am attempting to print from both web and word.

    printer goes thru the motions of printing - paper passes thru the machine - but no end product.

    Exact same problem with my uncle's computer. New ink cartridges, etc. Tape DEFINITELY removed. My hands are covered in ink. When attempting to print a page in color or grey scale, the page feeds through an inch at a time as if it were functioning properly, but no ink is printed on the paper. It seems as if the bit that holds the ink is not responding. Brand new out of the box, full ink cartridges register as only partially filled on the printers display. On the nozzle check under the maintenance menu on the physical printer, only blank pages are printed. Any Canon PIXMA MP780 experts, help is needed please..

    I have a Canon Pixma MP350 and the printed ink was slowly coming out only yellow and gray. I replaced the print head and ink jets and now when it goes through the motion of printing, the paper is blank.

    You have two printers both printing blank pages? From what are you printing? Word, Web or other program?

New in brand new? Is it possible that you did not remove the tape on the bottom of the cartridges? This kind of hints at this as the printers are going"through the motion" but coming out blank. If you take out the cartridge and look at the bottom, double check that the tape is off. I've done this myself :)

Hope this helps....better...

Why does it print one blank page on one PC but is fine on another PC?

Check the printer setting. Setting may have been retained even after reinstalling drivers. Right click on Printer icon, left on printer properties. Check for print black only or the like.

To print "two-sided" (a.k.a. duplex), open your printer's properties before you print, go to tab "page setup" and check "duplex printing".

Pixma MP780 that will not print


If you have installed the driver and can print out a test page that means your computer is communicating with your printer.

Try to use wordpad and before you print, hit on ctrl-p then choose the pixma as your default printer. then try to print the document, you can use microsoft word as well for testing.

keep me updated

My printer will not auto align and will not print a complete grid when I try to align it myself. Currently I get nothing when I try to print and my ink tanks are all full

You can copy and paste any of these links in your internet address bar under a new tab to take you to your manual page.

You will need to realign the alignment, and print an alignment page. Or reset printer.

OS X - Canon PIXMA MP780 printer won't print black

Unfortunately, I can't link you directly to canon's support pages, but if you go to this link, and enter won't print black and search, you'll get a list of possible solutions to troubleshoot this error. I'd start by checking your cartridge for ink,reseating it, print a test page, recalibrate the print head, etc. But that will get you started, at least.
