Prints everything blank

Wenn I try to print anything it'l just give me a blank paper, but it takes the time it would to print everything normaly. I'm sure the toners have ink, and Im sure the problem is with the printer itself, already tried printing in linux and other PCs and the result was the same.
Thanks for any reply.

    First of all thanks for the sugestions, the printer is 3 years old, so this aren't the original cartridges, and Im sure they have ink (they print fine on another HP I have). Im pretty sure they are well placed,and yes this are the right ones for this printer, but im gona check for dried ink... Strange thought that both the color and black cartridges would be blocked at the same time....

  • joaoneves792 May 23, 2009

    duh, if they print fine on the other printer of course they're not blocked...
    Anyway thanks for the advice, but this seems to me more like a printer hardware problem.


  • joaoneves792 May 24, 2009

    I tried both the drivers that came with the instalation cd, and the ones availible at HP website, but it still doesn't work...

    It started working! Don't know what did it, but its printing again.
    Anyway, thanks for the help.

Check the print cartridge. Open the printers top cover and find release lever for the ink cartridge. Lift out the cartridge and check the jets (copper coloered foil with holes) for blockage. New cartridges have a piece of tape over the jets which must be removed before installing. If blocked with dried ink, dab gently with paper towel and rubbing alcohol. Dry by dabbing on paper towel. Other things to check are: Incorrect cartridge, empty cartridge, and cartridge not snapped in all the way. The cartridge that comes with the printer usually is only partly filled and runs out earlier than normal. You could always try a new cartridge which you will need eventually anyway.

Good luck,
Techjoel

    O.K. so the basics are out of the way. What about device drivers? It sounds like you may have tried this but I would go to >control panel >device manager >printers (imaging devices >driver >update driver.



    Good luck,

My Dell 3115cn MFP prints 3 blank pages between prints or copies if I print more than 1 copy how do I fix this? What is causing it?


I will do first a full printer cleaning, that mean take off all dust and anything can that can be inside the printer (ex.bugs and dirt accumulation).
Second try to locate the printer rollers and check if they are in good condition.Printer rollers need to be in good condition because those are the parts that move the paper inside the printer.
Also when you feed the papers into the feeder make sure you air the paper so they don,t stick together.

Brand new printer with brand new ink prints BLANK pages


Hi Mike This is an odd one. If it prints the bars then ir should print everything else - cleaning is just wasting ink in this case.
I'm guessing that this is still under warranty, so I would take it back and get it replaced.

All the symptoms of an empty toner cartridge. Take the cartridge out and gently shake it a few times. If this gives you a few prints it is time to invest in a new cartridge.

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

P3150 printer runs but doesn't print


Are you saying that the printer prints in B&W but not in color, or only that it will print a test page with B&W? It might be that the color ink cartridge is dry.
