Normal print results in a blank page

When I print in normal mode, the printer seems to print, but the page comes out blank. I have to use best mode in order for it to print. The print quality is light. What should I do?

If you try and print a test page form the printer it will be light also. If this is the case you have a cloged cartridge. You can try to clean the cartridge, or replace it.

Canon mf5750 prints blank pages


Can anyone tell me where the formatter is located?
Is it part of the mainboard of the mf5750?
I read somewhere, that the formatter is responsible, if standard printing works (status reports etc), but normal printing tasks do not.
Really no solution guys? I cannot believe this.
Thanks for any advice.

My brother printer DCP 395CN does not give option of printing odd or even pages in fast or fast normal mode. When i switch to normal printing mode it provides option. I want to print pages on both sides...


Some printers automatically print automatic duplex printing, other printers allow you to manually reinsert pages to print the second side .and some printers do not support duplex printing at all.

To find out whether your printer supports duplex printing, you can check the printer manual, contact the printer manufacturer, or check the printer's properties by clicking Properties in the Print dialog box

Note that If you have more than one printer installed, it's possible that one printer supports duplex printing and another printer does not.

Everything seems ok on my printer but when try to print something it comes very light not dark enough


Generally one can set the "Print Quality" in printer "defaults" often they are noted as, Fine, Normal, Fast Normal, Fast, or similar... now that means the amount of INK on the page, the faster you go, the less ink... the less darker it is. Try setting your printer to it Highest/best quality setting see if that helps.

Paper comes out blank


Ok here is the code you need.
The waste ink are in the inside of your printer you need to get at it to clean out, but after this you got to reset it after you cleaned it or it will still not work, you may not have to get inside to clean it try this first to reset it.
Reset CANON PIXMA IP5000 printer To reset the counter or to find out about it’s reading you have to use the service mode.
Turn off the printer, push the resume button and keep on pushing.
Press the power button and keep on pushing. Now let go off the resume button,
but not the power button. Push the resume button twice, then let go off all buttons.
You are now in service mode.

To leave the service mode, give the power button one push.

Push the resume buttons once, after that the power button once.
The first information page appears.
Push resume twice, then power once: You get the second page.

Newer PIXMA-printers print the first page as a test for the nozzles.
The second page contains a lot of information.

Our advice: Print the second page before and after reset of the waste ink counter.
Only then can you be sure that the reset was a success.

To reset the waste ink counter right now, push resume four times and after that power once.

Important: Before starting with normal printing again, switch off the printer.
That gets you out of service mode.

Then switch on the printer again and print, as you like

Page blank when printed


remove the ink cartridges and use a qtip dipped in rubbing alcohol and GENTLY clean the printhead on the cartridge. Reinsert and try printing again. If it prints anything at all, keep going till it becomes normal. If still nothing, replace the ink cartridges.

Printing blanks


Usually, the thing to do is turn off the printer, shut down your PC and then reboot. Just remember this has to be a cold shutdown, meaning completely off not just hibernating or in sleep mode. You may also want to shut down and then pull the plug on the PC. This flushes away the jobs left in RAM.

In Control Panel, Display, Screen Saver, Power settings is a setting for what happens when you press your power button. Check this setting to make it power off, not Hibernate, not Standby.

All of this is meant to flush out any odd ball print jobs locked into your print queue.

Once you successfully do this, your printer should resume to normal operation..

If not, *please* let me know so we can move on to the next step in a possibly long process of troubleshooting.

Extremely slow copying


Cartridges may give a very slow printing if internally damaged, or :
When using colored paper in the all-in-one, printing or copying is slow.This issue is a result of the automatic paper type sensor misreading the colored paper as photo paper. The print out takes longer because the unit is printing in Best mode instead of Normal mode.
  1. Click Start , point to Settings , and then click Control Panel .
  2. Double-click Printers and Faxes .
  3. Right-click the appropriate all-in-one, and then click Printing Preferences .
  4. Click the Paper/Quality tab and under Type is: select Plain Paper . This sets the default paper type setting to Plain Paper.
Hope this helps.
