Re: Printing help

This may sound a little trivial but if its an inkjet have ou taken the protective tape off the bottome of the cartridge? if its a laser make sure you have taken all the transportation pins/plugs/caps out/off as these physicaly stop the toner coming into contact with the drum. if you have done the above check to see if its an original: some compatable/reman toners needs chips which tell the printer its there, if this is dislodged or faulty (ie wrong chip for the cartridge) then again it will not work. if all else fails just try the normal screaming at it!

Re: Printing help

Maybe you could tell us what type of printer you have and what system you have it hooked up to.

Canon MP970 prints blank pages. How can I FIX that problem?

Some times when you get a new cart. a fine film can be blocking the
exit hole,check that this is clear by shaking the cart. up and down
over a large piece of paper ,if you do not get any ink out ,take a small
pin and gently insert it into the exit hole and move it around in a circle,
don't go to deep,then try shaking it again..? Another idea is to replace
all the carts.(colour ones also) as some printers wont work unless you
do this, after changing carts. disconect your printer from mains supply
and leave for about 15 minuets to reset..Hope this works for you
good luck. T.C.

My printer is printing blank pages

I used to have one of these printers.

1. Check the ink levels.
2. Try printing on DVD.

The C309 has a black photo cartridge.

Text prints from the regular black cartridge and pictures print from the photo black cartridge.

THe best way to tell if by checking first the ink levels and replace cartridge if necessary.

One thing you can do to check if the printer is printing is by adjusting on the Printer Setttings and printing on one color.

To do this you need to choose the color from a circular palette .

Another way is to use Word or any other processor and change the font color to blue and print it.

Hope it helps.

Dell 720 printer , new ink cartriges but prints blank pages

I know it sounds silly, but never underestimate the obvious.

Did you remove the plastic protectors from the cartridges?

Another solution maybe to return the cartridges to the store for an exchange. It has only happened once to me, but I exchanged the cartridge for another "new" one and it worked fine.

Good luck

Not printing microsoft office documents, VIsta Software

Try to press the photo and copy at the same time it will print a diagnostic page
look how is the quality of the text.
if it prints very light or if it doesnt print open the access door and try to remove the ink cartridges and put it back again and make sure you hear a click sound after you put the cartridges back in and close the printer access door
try to print again a demo page press photo and copy and check if there is improvement
if no improvement open the kodak aio home center software click on the question mark(?) on the upper right corner and click on maintenance..then select printhead cleaning.After the printhead cleaning print again demo page (press photo and copy at the same time) if still no improvement on the quality of the text call the kodak hotline 1 800 421 might need a printhead replacement..

My Dell 962 printer only prints blank pages.

The ink is dry.

Try repeatly going through a cleaning cycle.

If not, remove all ink cartridges and pour some 100% Alcohol where the cartridge is and leave it there for 1 hour.

Afterwards, go through a few more cleaning cycle.
Make sure you have spare ink.

Left side of page prints blank

Hi there in the paper handling menu check the paper size settings as it maybe as simple as the incorrect paper size has been set in the machine

Hope this works for you
