    I'm having the same problem. This morning it worked fine. Now it prints blank paper

  • Anonymous Jan 04, 2008

    I replaced the cartridge with a new cartridge, removing all of the packing and it just prints blank pages. I tried turning the printer OFF, tried unplugging the printer, tried rebooting my computer from a cold boot, nothing works. Would appreciate hearing any suggestions to try. I even put the old cartridge back in, and now it just prints blank pages, where before there was some ink coming out.

    Prints Blank as mentioned in all these other reports. Was told that the "Laser Shutter" gets stuck after a paper jam. I will try the "unplug reset" as well as the "slam the toner door" technique because I have tried everything else to no avail.

I just beat up the copier and now it works again! What kind of moral lesson is that?

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!

We tried reseating the cartridge, turning off the printer for 10 minutes and other solutions. Then tried Printer Settings>Reset Printer>On. It worked on our MF6550.

My printer was printing blank pages after I changed ink cartridges. I unplugged my copier and left it unplugged for 10 minutes, then plugged it back in and it went into an initialization mode and now it is printing normal again. Thanks for all the help!

Possibly sounding silly here, (again) but have you removed the seal from the toner cartridge (This is a breakaway plastic tab, connected to a length on plastic, which seals the toner for transit)

If this has not been removed from the cartridge then it fails in just the way you are describing

Paper comes out with nothing on it


On the new cartridge, did you remember to remove the plastic seal from the toner? Do you get blank sheets only when you print or when you make copies too? Were you careful when clearing the paper jam or could you have accidentally damaged the printer?

4TH LIGHT FROM THE TOP KEEPS COMING ON LEXMARK E232


What this light sequence means that the printer has a paper jam.

When a paper jam occurs, the printer stops and the operator panel's Paper Jam light and Continue button lights come on. Press and release Continue twice quickly to display the specific secondary error paper jam light sequence.


How to clear Paper Jam

Press Continue button twice quickly to see the secondary error code.


To get the secondary error codes

When the Error light (!) and Continue button lights are both on, a secondary error has occurred.

When the Paper Jam light (4th light) and Continue button lights are both on, a paper jam secondary error has occurred.

Press and release Continue button twice quickly to display the secondary error code light sequence.


Press Continue button to resume printing once all the jammed pages are cleared from the paper path.

We recommend that you clear the entire paper path when a paper jam occurs.


To clear a paper jam:


1 If you are feeding paper from a tray, remove the tray, and then remove any jams.

2 Open the front cover and remove the print cartridge assembly.

NOTE: Do not leave the print cartridge assembly exposed to direct light for an Extended period of time. Extended light exposure can cause print quality problems.

3 Remove any jams in the area behind the print cartridge assembly.

4 Lift the flap at the front of the printer and remove any jams beneath the flap.

5 Open the rear exit and remove any jams.

6 After you have cleared the jams, reinstall the print cartridge assembly, make sure all printer covers and trays are closed, and then press Continue button to resume printing.

NOTE: The printer reprints the pages that caused the paper jam.

Reading no paper paper tray is full


Instructions
  1. Check the display for an error message. If the display reads "Clearing paper from printer," the engine has detected a jam and is attempting to eject the jammed pages automatically. These pages will often be blank.
  2. Check the display for "Performing PRINT/STOP TEST" or "Performing SERVICE TEST." Either of these messages indicates that the printer is going through a test procedure that may eject blank pages.
  3. Reduce the amount of paper in the input tray if the printer is feeding multiple blank sheets at a time. The printer will pull extra pages through if the input tray is overfilled.
  4. Replace the paper in the input tray with the correct size if needed. If the 4600 printer detects the paper as an incorrect size for the print job, it may eject the paper without printing anything on it.
  5. Replace the ink cartridges if certain colors are blank on the page. Replace the black cartridge if printing a black text document that is coming out blank. The printer may attempt to print even if the ink level is low or empty, but will unable to print anything on the page, causing it to come out blank.
  6. Remove the sealing tape from newly installed cartridges. The tape covers the print heads and should be removed before installing the cartridges. If the tape is left on, it will prevent ink from getting on the pages as they print.
  7. Press the "Check mark" button on the control panel to enter the printer menu. Run a diagnostic so the printer can attempt to determine the cause of the blank pages printing. Press the up or down arrow to select "Diagnostics." Press the "Check mark" button. Press the "Down" arrow to highlight "PQ Troubleshooting." Press the "Check mark" button. The printer runs a diagnostic and returns to a ready state when done.

The pages just come out blank. the printer has not been in use for some time now. it kept on saying paper jam when there was no paper in it. i gave it a real paper jam and that fixed it. but now its...


What probally happened is that the inkjet cartridges either dried out or the holes where the ink comes out became plugged up from lack of use. Try replacing the ink cartridges and see if that fixes the problem.
