SOURCE: Prints blank pages

hi jcruisedirec

Test print shows that there is no problem with he printer.
Do this:

Type just one or two words in a new document and try to print. Before printing, look at the print setup and make sure you have the correct printer name selected.
Also when you go to print, there are few options like:

  • Print All
  • Current page
  • Pages
  • Selection
If you attempt to print "selection" without actually selecting a certain portion of the document, you get blank page.
So first check that the correct name of the printer is selected.
Then test printing one page
Hope this will help you. Good luck.

SOURCE: my printer has stopped printing from the cyan ink

Hi, did you let the ink cartridge dry out completely before inserting a new cyan cartridge???

If this is the case you may have a bit of trouble getting the ink through the printhead...you have to persevere with deep cleaning and/or head cleaning...
if that does not work you may need a new printhead...which is usually dearer than a new printer...
I would also take the printhead out and clean the contacts with Isopropol alcohol...do not get finger prints on the contacts...that will stop it very quickly...
just a thought...did you remove the sealing tape over the airholes and bottom feeder hole on the cartridge???
if the airholes are sealed the cartridge pulls a vacuum and the ink will not flow...
hope this helps you...
cheers

SOURCE: Hi,I am experiencing nothing printing on paper

your print head is either clogged or damaged, A print head is the unit your ink cartriges sit in. If its a nedw or newer printer (under warranty) you can contact the manufacturer and they will send you a new print head at little to no cost-good luck

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.

HP Officejet 6210 printing blank pages


Hi steve well I suggest that you remove the cartridges and clean the little gold contacts on the carriage and the cartridge. If this doesn't work then install brand new original cartridges as the cartridegs that you have refilled the data ribbon may have been damaged when you refilled them..

Try the above and I hope it works for you
Thanks J
