Take the test page and place it on the scanning table. press the "start scan" button which realigns the new cartridge. this should then cure your problem.

Reading no paper paper tray is full


Instructions
  1. Check the display for an error message. If the display reads "Clearing paper from printer," the engine has detected a jam and is attempting to eject the jammed pages automatically. These pages will often be blank.
  2. Check the display for "Performing PRINT/STOP TEST" or "Performing SERVICE TEST." Either of these messages indicates that the printer is going through a test procedure that may eject blank pages.
  3. Reduce the amount of paper in the input tray if the printer is feeding multiple blank sheets at a time. The printer will pull extra pages through if the input tray is overfilled.
  4. Replace the paper in the input tray with the correct size if needed. If the 4600 printer detects the paper as an incorrect size for the print job, it may eject the paper without printing anything on it.
  5. Replace the ink cartridges if certain colors are blank on the page. Replace the black cartridge if printing a black text document that is coming out blank. The printer may attempt to print even if the ink level is low or empty, but will unable to print anything on the page, causing it to come out blank.
  6. Remove the sealing tape from newly installed cartridges. The tape covers the print heads and should be removed before installing the cartridges. If the tape is left on, it will prevent ink from getting on the pages as they print.
  7. Press the "Check mark" button on the control panel to enter the printer menu. Run a diagnostic so the printer can attempt to determine the cause of the blank pages printing. Press the up or down arrow to select "Diagnostics." Press the "Check mark" button. Press the "Down" arrow to highlight "PQ Troubleshooting." Press the "Check mark" button. The printer runs a diagnostic and returns to a ready state when done.

I have installed new cartridges the colour prints perfect but the black is blurred with lies through it. i also found a small t shaped rubber piece about about 4mm x 6mm in the paper tray could this be the...


this rubber piece can be actually locket from printer rollers, but, returning to your smudgy printing

1. remove cartridges from the printer
2. check if there is bit of paper stuck anywhere in paper path, if so, remove
3. check if rollers on paper path are clean
4. touch bottom of the cartridge with absorbent tissue to check if ink is flowing through, if yes then insert cartridges back and print test page.
5. if cartridge do not allow inkflow, check what solvent is used (water, isopropyl alcohol or methylated spirit - this which do not cause precipitation is correct solvent), soak absorbent paper (tissue) with proper solvent and whipe head of the cartridge with it, 6. put drop of the solvent on golden knobs inside seats of the cartridges of the printer, allow it to soak in, wipe off with lint free tissue and put another drop of solvent in. allow soak in,
7. install cartridges back, print test page, it should start printing very weak and improving as it goes through the page (solvent will be printed first)
8. create "strip page" one line yellow, white space, one line cyan, white, magenta, white, black - print that page, this print will clean printheads and establish good inkflow.

all ink printers must print at least one page per week as to keep heads free of gum and ink in flow.

Not responding to PC instructions to print data


Hi,

You need to load the PRINTED ALIGNMENT PAGE on the scanner glass, then press on "OK" button. It should start scanning the alignment page. That way, you are completing the PROCESS of ALIGNMENT.

Thank you so much.
