    Replace 2 cartridges, just blank paper comes out

  • trees-r-us Oct 08, 2008

    We just got this printer and at first we thought maybe it was out of ink and stuff but even after changing it it still just spits out blank pieces of paper out. Does the same thing when i try to go and copy something as well. I called Canon and they told me that if it wasnt because of low ink then the whole system is bad. HELP

Blank paper usually comes after a paper jam, simply pull out the ink cartridge and slam it back, this will open the laser aperture, repeat this procedure until it works again, no need to do anything else.

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!

Ive repaired several of these for this problem.It comes from the laser assembly shutter not getting opened by the cartride when installed.Usally required me to dissasmble and lube the pivot point in the machine. The only workaround that may work for awile is to really insert the cartridge into the machine,this sometimes freese the frozen linkage.Not that thats a great solution,but It may get you by.

I had this problem, a large hair on the transfer roller was the reason, just clean it well.

    sorry, link didn't work

    make SURE you pulled the blue plastic tab from the new cart.

    if you do not, toner will not get to the drum and then the paper resulting in blank pages.

    this is a very common mistake I see my clients do when installing new cartridges.

    also, if you have an old cartridge that worked but is low in toner, put it in, does it print?

My epson 710 artisan gives an error message that there is a paper jam or is out of paper, when I try to print a photo, it feeds through 2 blank 4*6 photo papers. There is NO paper jam when I check it, and...

Hello, Your printer makes a "grinding sound". This is usually due to two things:
1. A dirty printhead rail. It is either ink residue or dry. Try gently cleaning it with some water.
2. Paper pick up roller(s) not picking up. Clean them with a damp terry cloth towel or a multi-purpose cleaner.
If you have unable to fix it please contact me at 1800-204-4427. I can help you out.
Good luck!!

How do u load paper? front or back side up?

Hi, It dosen`t matter how you load paper, Copy paper are blank on both side, now if you are reusing paper with prints on one side then you do it by trial and error.
Now if you meant how to load document on top, then that`s a different story, most fax machines require that you put the document face down. I would suggest that you make a copy from a document face down and if it comes out ok, fine, if the copy comes out blank then you need to put the document face up instead.
Hope this helps.

HP IIIp prints extra blank pages

HI there make sure that the paper tray guides are fully against the paper also try sending the job through the manual feed to see if you get the same problem. If you do not then it maybe that the paper cassette separation pad is worn and will need replacing. If your model has no rubber pad at the front of the cassette then you will have a metal hold over one corner of the paper make sure that when the paper lifts that the paper sits under the silver (Dog Ear) as this acts as a separator.

Hope this helps
Thanks J
