SOURCE: Printing blank page at the end of every printing job

Hi Keren,

1) Are you sure it is the printer, not the software application ?

Try printing a single "Hello World" message from "Notepad"

If there is no blank page at the end of it, the problem is in
the specific software app: Office, Word, Excel, etc...


2) What application are you printing from?

a) Check the page and print setup.

b) Make sure the application's "page size" and the printer's
paper size are consistent. Pay special attention to
metric paper sizes vs English:

E.g. A4 vs Letter

If the page with margins is bigger than the paper, it will
generate a new page, even though there are no visible
characters on it.

c) Check the print margins within the page setup:
In MS-Office: File ---> Page Setup --->

d) Add a single character to the very bottom of your
document, and see if it wraps around onto the last page.

Microsoft office applications are notorious for wrapping
the last PARAGRAPH character onto the next page if
it does not quite fit onto the paper.

e) if you are using MS WinWord, go into options and set it
to display all special characters:

Check to make sure that there are no page-breaks at
the end of the document.

Also look for extra paragraph marks/ carriage returns,
and check the format settings on the last paragraph
mark in the document:

Page brake before...
Keep lines together ....
Widow and orphan control ...

which can cause the last paragraph mark to generate a
new page. If the last paragraph mark is not formatted
the way you want it, make sure that you save the
TEMPLATE after you change it, since this is the
DEFAULT setting for all new documents.

Finally it is also possible for Windows applications to look
different on the screen than the final print due to small
(but cumulative) True Type Font (TTF) computation erros,
such that a 10 page document on the screen can actually
page-split in weird places printing as 11 pages.

====
I have the identical model of printer, and it does NOT seem
to have any settings for printing banners or adding separator
pages, at least not in my printer driver, but this is NOT to say
that the applications you are using are not causing this
problem.

I hope this gets you started.

Please rate my answers.
Martin

SOURCE: Printer prints blank pages from notepad, word, and excel.

Hi tim8094

Obviously there is nothing wrong with the printer, because you are able to print from the Internet.

Before attempting to print from word, excel etc, make sure you have the correct printer selected (check it through FILE MENU -> PRINT ->PROPERTIES)
Do a print test by typing just couple of words -may be in different color-
Best of luck

SOURCE: printing blank pages


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

SOURCE: prints only blank pages

I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck
RK

Inconsistent printing


In the printer's dialogue find the print pages number. Print page from/to and select 20 pages chunks. In effect print only part of the document at a time. Add all chunks together in one pile. Work around I know, but it works.

if your printer is already, click file -> print, then do you hear the voice from printer. if not, your printer is not boot.
and you said your preview is blank. you not load the page with content. I guess you don't have the right to print it.

Epson workforce 545 is printing & coping blank


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles, to get the black ink flowing through the ink-jets inside the print-head.

Some printers REQUIRE an "alignment" step every time you change the ink-cartridges.
It only takes a few minutes, and it prints one or two pages of paper.

HI there,
It sounds like you've done everything right, and it still won't print. Your printer is dead - and you need a new one.

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.
