There may be a little stick in the back of the paper tray that detects if paper is in the printer. When paper is placed in the tray, it pushes the stick down, and sends a message to the printer that paper is ready. If that stick is broken, or is not being pushed down fully, it could cause the printer to think that there is no paper.

Not all printers use this method for paper-detection, so there may not actually be a stick in your printer. Make sure you're putting in the paper all the way, and if nothing else works, you could try reinstalling the print drivers, as well as updating the printer's firmware.

My Canon Pixma MX882 is not printing though lots of ink. Paper goes through when I press print on my PC but nothing is printed


Print a test sheet to see if the printer is OK. If tthe sheet prints fine has this printer worked on this computer before? Did you change anything or update anything? You may have the wrong driver installed or the cable could be defective if it has worked before.

Epson R220 won't print. Paper feeds through OK, print head moves as if printing but no ink comes out. Tried several sets of cartridges and this makes no difference. Cartridges are recognised fine and no...


Nothing at all? Problem with micropiezo (micro pump) at head. But you said, replaced print head. So it might just lost electricity to head (problem with board).

Print heads and test prints fine......will not print ay documents


I subsequently discovered that only black would not print - the other colours did. The following solution should work for any colour

Turn on the printer
Lift the front cover so that the ink tanks line up at the front
Move the grey arm to the right of the yellow upwards
Remove the ink tanks (in my case 4)
Carefully lift out the plastic holder for the ink tanks, this I believe holds the print heads
Clean the head(s) using cotton buds and injet refill ink cleaning fluid. I get mine from Tescos with my refill inks.
Replace everything and hopefully your printer will be o.k. Mine was

HP LaserJet 3550 spits out blank paper when job sent from computer but prints fine when printing directly from printer


Try connecting the printer via the USB port on either one of the computers. Then test if the machine prints fine then likely possibility is that the Network interface card is faulty remove the network card and install in a different slot and test. If the same thing happens then reinstall the drivers and test.

Hope this helps
Thanks J
