Re: Prints blank pages only (2nd question)

You will probably have to replace the print head. But you can try this first. Take out all the cartridges. Using distilled water, a print head cleaning solution, or alcohol. Take a Q-tip dip into solution and saturate the nozzle area when the in flows through for each section. Slide a sheet of or paper towel underneath the printhead to soak up fluid that comes through. Take a paper towel fold it making a strip. Run hot tap water on the towel..not too much. Then place the cartridges on the towel. The heat will pull the ink down. Let it sit until you see ink on the towel from each cartride round 5 minutes or so. Take a dry cutip and clean out the ink residue inside the print head sections. Then reinsert the cartridges. Run the clean utility from your software a few times until the print is good. If this does not work replace your print head. Hope this helps.

My Printer started randomly printing blank pages when looking for color. Prints color every now and again, but generally blank. Prints fine when I set to Black/white only.

It is more likely that the settings need to be changed on a print job to job basis in the program you are generating the content from. There are usually defaults set in the software and you need to check these settings every time you print.

My deskjet 5550 printer stopped printing in color it only print black ink i have replaced the color cartridge still only prints in blank only; i have tried calibrate printer and clean cartridge options;...

If the Cartridge and printer alignment is successfull and you are still not able to print in color, mostly the Color print is disabled in your pc

Click on START Button
Open Printers and Faxes folder
Highlight the Printer icon for Deskjet
Right click on the printer icon and choose Printing Preferences
Under Printing preferences, you will find Printing mode - It must be on BLACK or GREY SCALE, Change to COLOR/ ALL
try printing.

Mp960 color prints ok but black and white not printing

When was the last time you printed in color? New ink printers are built so with a "use it or lose it" theme. The print heads are now built into the machines and are not generally replaceable. Yours luckily is, but I don't know how easily. The link below is to the replacement which costs $130 + shipping. Sometimes it can be just as worth it to buy a new machine, in this case I would probably prefer to repair the damaged machine as the new printer cartridges cost more and have less ink.

Prints only blank pages

I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck
