Check the cartridges first

Try doing this
disconnect printer from computer
cancel documents in queue
if using a straight USB connection, delete all instances of printer. else remove duplicate printer icons.

Epson 2280 printing blank pages


Run a head cleaning cycle by pressing ink button for 3 seconds or longer. Try printing after 3 cycles, if getting blank pages still. Nozzles are clog, better get a new one than having it fix, more cost effective.

What should I do with my Lexmark printer x3430? It will not print an entire article. It will print only one page.


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
  7. Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/AbnM39. Select your operating system, download and execute the file. After the install process, try to print again.

Printer problem


Sounds like a hardware problem. Try connecting the printer to a different computer (plug and play) and then install the software. Try a different cable.
Silly question but is power getting to the printer?

HP 1610 Printer...prints a test page, copies and prints but will not print anything from my computer..it is connected..I have uninstalled and retinstalled...the printer goes through the "printing" mode and...


try an updated driver for the printer (download it from the HP website). Its possible that the current software installed on your computer may be incompatible with your OS. Be sure to uninstall the current software before doing this. It could also be that you have a bad cable connected to your printer.

Recognizes printer, won't print


What i'm getting at is if the printer was not used for a long time the cartridges may have dried out.
