Reason : the shutter of the laser is not opened by the cartridge. (I had same problem, and solved it)

Open the door and remove the toner. look inside and you will see in the upper part a rectangular window in the metal bar. This window is shut by a metal plate behind when the door is open. Try to raise it with a knife. This is the problem. Now, this shutter is here only for legal reasons (security to prevent the laser beam going out when door open, but when the door is opened the power is shut so...). Cut a piece of plastic just the width of the opening, fold it at angle in the form or an L, then place it on the left side of the opening, so that the shutter can no longer go down. A piece of scotch to fix it in place and you are done.

Now, if it works and you are grateful, I am interested in empty cartridges.If you have some tell me. Thanks.

I don't think Vista is supported for this printer and if not doubt that it will be as Microsoft are bringing out a new OS to replace it.

My printer is printing blank.


Unless drum low warnings have been ignored for a significant amount of time, this is most likely to be a toner cartridge issue.

I would recommend running off 15-30 pages in the hope that this pulls some toner through. Failing this I would recommend replacing the toner cartridge.

Paper comes out with nothing on it


On the new cartridge, did you remember to remove the plastic seal from the toner? Do you get blank sheets only when you print or when you make copies too? Were you careful when clearing the paper jam or could you have accidentally damaged the printer?

Printer prints blank pages


This is almost certainly an issue with the toner cartridge. I would recommend running off 30 or so prints and contacting whoever the cartridge was purchased from if the toner doesn't pull through.

Why does my samsung scx5530fn printer constantly prints blank sheets of paper...we have turned it off/on; changed toner and it just decides to starting printing blank pages..anybody can help me i thank...


Please clean the drum and the fuser, also check the toner cartridges if there's any overflown toner powder spilled. The problem is caused when the toner waste tank in the drum is full or overflowing.
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Our copies are streaky like the drum is not clean.... help! There is black streaks on the top of all of our copies on our canon imagerunner 3300.


A) Black Streaks, Shadows, And Ghosting
Adjust the printer's lightness/darkness setting to 2-3 different variables and see if problem disappears. Look at the fusing assembly - is the roller torn or does it have any black buildup? Use caution!!! It gets HOT!

Try another toner also.

My al-1631 gives blank copies. just replaced toner. no warning lights of any kind. no message lights. it just prints out blank paper. could it be the drum? can't find instruction manual. purchased...


Was the copier working fine before you changed the cartridge? If so I think your cartridge is the problem. If it started making blank copies right after you changed it. If this is not the case the first thing I would say is it is not the drum. Try opening and closing the right side door. There are contacts in the door that will cause blank copies. I have had several customers do this and it fixed the problem. You can also try pulling out the toner and then pull the drum unit partially out and re-seat it. Then re-install the toner.
Good Luck

I changed my toner cartridge today and now it's not copying


Having 2 (defective?) cartridges that behave in exactly the same way seems too unlikely to me. So I have to ask the obvious question....did you pull the seal to release the toner? If it's an original there should be one, if it's remanufactured, there may or may not be one on it.

Laserjet sends out a blank page, even after I put in a new ink cartridge.


It is possible that you have the wrong driver installed. You may try removing the printer and reinstalling it using the driver on the disk that came with the device.

Also, if you have recently replaced the toner cartridge verify that you removed the protective tape that is supposed to be removed before placing the toner cartridge in the machine.

Finally, if you are using Vista or an operating system other than Windows XP, you should check HP's website to determine if there is updated software for your operating system.

Hope this helps - flub

Problem printing after replacing toner cartridge


We replaced the cartridge and it is still copying in bad quality.
Printing is fine but it is the copying that is the problem.

Feeds two blank sheets then jams


Im pretty sure that the printer is broken... If you really want to spend twice as much on fixing your printer go ahead, but i sugest calling the company and asking for assistance they will probably send you a new 1 and then you just send them your odl 1 thats what i did..
