    Was printing with no problem.

    Attempted to print some labels.

    Started pressing buttons on panel.

    Finally got the labels fed and nothing printed.

    Now attempting to copy or print anything and nothing.

    Don't think it's the toner. There were no messages indicating that before or after the problem.

Thanks Guest with Best Solultion! OMG! I have had my machine printing blank for over a month now and reading stuff and trying to find a solution. Until finally today I found this page. I read your solution and hit the front like u said for several times and nothing. Finally, after the third try WALA...IT WORKED!!! Thanks again. If anyone has this same problem try this because it really works! Eventhough this is such a strange problem for such an expensive machine.

The laser shutter stays closed, it is very common problem, bent the lift arm on the shutter so it will slide easy.

    My last comment was directed at the layman service tech, for the layman copier user: there is a long (about 1/2" x 5") rectangular 'window inside the copier, take the cartridge out, look at the metal plate just above the cartridge, the shutter in this window doesn't open when the door is closed. with a flat screw driver you should be able to swing this shutter up, if the shutter stays closed during copying the copy will be blank. Good luck.

I tried something else that worked -- when the open-palm smacks did not work for me. I slid out the paper tray (on the front of the machine), and slammed it back into the machine - and IT WORKED!!!

After 3 hard open palm hits did not solve the problem, I performed the following steps & my copier is working perefectly.
1. Remove paper tray.
2. Using a medium size flashligh, reach inside the copier (where paper tray normally resides). Using the medium sized (8" x 2") flashlight, I tapped upward in 6 different places. After my 6th tap, I heard a sound inside the copier of plastic hitting plastic. (ie a plastic cover falling a few inches and strking another plastic surface.) Now my copier is making great copies again.

I've tried everything before for months... unplugging, new cartridges, servicing, etc. I've always avoided jarring an electronic item, but hitting the front fixed it! A couple of open-palmed smacks above the paper drawer, and it printed this very page. Apparently, sometimes the cover over the laser sticks shut after replacing the print cartridge, or removing a paper jam. Sounds crazy, but smack it!

Wow, just received a call from my uncle saying his copier wasn;t working (MF6550). So tried replacing the toner, the thing was still spitting out blanks. Did some googling and found this thread.

I smashed above the paper tray and sure enough it worked!! lol just awesome.

Try reinstalling all of the printer software. If that does not do it then something is wrong with the printhead itself, specifically the area that controls the flow and metering of the black ink.

Leaking black ink on printed pages


Hi, please attempt to run a numerous blank paper through the printer. This will dry or clean any ink found on the rollers.
Continue to run blank pages through the printer until no more ink is found on the paper, then attempt printing. If ink stains or streaks are still present, the printer may need service.

My copier won't print.


Are you sure that your scanner bulb is working. You may hear the scanner moving but the bulb may be burned out which will cause you to get blank pages.
