Did you run a test sheet print? It might be that the nozzles are clogged. Run the ink cleaning cycle.

Dont clean the metal rail with WD40 oil! The printhead (and the rail) has to be lubricated with a special molycote that doesnt attack the plastic.

Hi Gera.
The above problem sounds like the rail that the printer unit runs along is clogged up, open up the top cover, spray a little WD40 on to a cloth and wipe the rail. (Do not spray WD40 directly onto the rail that runs through the printer unit), if this does not work you will notice a thin plastic strip running through the print head this may also require cleaning, be very careful with this as you may dislodge it, it will require an engineer to reinstall it.

I have Canon ipf 650 , it doesnt show any eror, the problem is it is new plotter, printed very few, and stoped printing only empty sheets were coming out, we changed printhead and again the same, empty...

With this type of plotter there really is very few possibilities. Replace the ink cartridge with a manufacturer original cartridge. If that doesn't work, change your paper. If still no print, send it back to Canon on a warranty replacement.

Printed out a inkjet magnet sheet now won't anything else! Help!

OK Christina, did the whole magnet page come out without any missing tear outs or pieces? You probably have a stuck piece of sticky paper in your feed or rollers. Look in your manual for clearing paper jams and examine your rollers while your at it from stray pieces of paper.

How do i make double sided copies for my HP 2840

When you call up your printer (usually [Ctl][P]) tell it to print even numbered pages only, but in reverse order, This means the last page to be printed will be page 2, and it will be face down on the top of the pile (blank side showing) Take the printed sheets and rotate them so the top (head) of the sheet is feeding back into the machine, with the blank sides up. Now call your print up again and tell it to print the odd pages only. The first sheet to be printed will be page 1 which will print on the blank side of page 2, and all the rest will follow in sequence, with the correct sides up. Works every time. The print control is part of the Windows system, so your application should provide the full functionality.

Problem printing multiple pages on one sheet!

This is not the fault of the printer but the fault of word.

The way I did it successfully was as follow:
File > Page Setup > Layout = Landscape (sounds like you have already done this)

In the print dialoge, instead of OK, click Properties. On the layout tab, select landscape and below that select pages per sheet = 4 and then click ok... Then click OK to print.

Hello, you can print a calibration sheet from the front panel of the printer. Hit menu on the panel of the printer and scroll down to calibration printer and hit ok. Then hit ok on print calibration page and it should proceed to print a calibration page. After it is done printing, it will tell you to scan the calibration sheet.
