When I print only a white page comes out, with no text. Do you know why this happens? It just started 2 days ago. It's not an inc problem.
STEP 1: Clean Print Head
The print head gets clogged due to frequent usage. Therefore, the ink will not be able to get out of the cartridge. Hence, the printer only prints blank pages. The solution to this problem will be to clean the print head. This can be done by cleaning it with a damp cloth or with an Iso Propyl Solution.
STEP2: Check if Cartridge is Empty
If this does not work, your next step would be to check if there is any ink in the printer cartridge. You might be giving a command for a high resolution printout, but the ink might not be enough for such a purpose. Look out for the printer prompts that will tell you about the low levels of ink.
STEP 3: Install the Correct Printer Driver
Many a times if you are downloading a printer driver from the internet, you might download the wrong driver. This will result in the computer not recognizing the printer. The result is blank pages.
STEP 4: Check for Appropriate Paper Size
Another facet to be taken care of is the printer size. You must check the Page Setup Dialog box whether you have selected the settings that are in tune with the paper size that is being used for the printing.
