Re: Prints blank pages only

Try brand new genuine cartridges, if that does not work, it is your printer's print heads. Canon has these built into the printer as opposed to having them built into each new cartridge. Sometimes cleaning the heads a few times does not do much at all. On some occassions I have cleaned the print heads over 20 times and have succeeded eventually in getting it to print. Good luck.

Check the settings in Windows Print Manager.

Make sure that the paper quality matches what is in the printer. If set to glossy, minimal ink is deposited on the page. Also, check the print quality - draft quality provides a minimal amount of ink as well.

Brand new printer with brand new ink prints BLANK pages

Hi Mike This is an odd one. If it prints the bars then ir should print everything else - cleaning is just wasting ink in this case.
I'm guessing that this is still under warranty, so I would take it back and get it replaced.

Printer "prints" but when it's done, no ink shows on the page.

When you filled your cartridges were they empty? If so there is a good possibility that the nozzles are gummed and dried up. If you are going to fill them yourself watch the indicator that comes up on the screen it will tell you when you are getting low. If you get a low indication fill it asap. This will keep your nozzles wet and free flowing. Waiting until its empty can cause them to gum up and altimately dry out. My solution is to go to the store buy brand new cartridges. Go through the the full set up that your manufacture recomends. This means using the install new ink cartridge utility that came with your printer. Print a test page and print a nozzle aligment page. Just remember never let your ink completely run out before filling. If you follow this you will never run into this problem again.
