SOURCE: Will not print---prints blank pages

This printer is 13 years old. I am a fan of keeping things around,  and those cartridges for $3 arent bad, but its not the best on the environment, and considering printers of this decade print faster, have better resolution and are capable of archival prints.

It's really worth it.


Hope this helps.

SOURCE: HP photosmart 7150 - looks like it's printing - pages blank

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

SOURCE: Prints blank pages, even test pages

Did you pull the tape off of the cartridge?

SOURCE: Red will only print on test page.

So what you need to do is clean the cartridge from the printer toolbox..do all the three steps cleaning..(clean cartridge,prime cleaning,intermediate cleaning)..
once the cleaning is done..try to make a copy..if its still the same..change both the ink cartridge and then try to make a copy..if it resolves the issue then cartridge is defective..if it does not resolve the issue then printer is defective..

My HP C4780 PRINTER WILL PRINT A TEST PAGE BUT NOTHING ELSE. How do I get it to print?


Check the settings in Windows Print Manager.

Make sure that the paper quality matches what is in the printer. If set to glossy, minimal ink is deposited on the page. Also, check the print quality - draft quality provides a minimal amount of ink as well.

Have tried printing from computer and tried printing test page from printer. both times the pages come out blank.. how do I check the toner levels in printer. thank you


The draw back of inkjet technology printers are, if it is not using quite long period of time,cartridge nozzles will dry up, result printer will act just like a printing some thing but nothing will come on paper(blank page) even ink levels are showing full.
Try to recover the both cartridges through 'clean print cartridge' process from the system,if not better consult cartridge re-filler to clean the nozzles..Replace new cartridges if above said methods are not worked out.

My HP deskjet 2050 all-in-one printer only shoots out blank paper and won't print. It used to say there was no paper in it, which there was. It scans & prints just fine - just won't print...


Any error messages on the printer digital screen or the desktop? I take it the "The ink is fine" means that there is ink in the cartridges!

Try a test print via the Control Panel> Printers and Faxes> properties > Print test page.

How do i get the ink cartridge out?


Turn the printer on.
Lift the lid.
Look inside the lid -- some printers have "instructions" printed there.
Or, just wait 10 seconds, and the print-head will slide into position.
Push down on the ink-cartridge to "unlock" it from its socket.
Gently remove the ink-cartridge.

Printer will not scan to computer.


You will probably have to go to this page to download the new Mac drivers for Snow Leopard to get the full functionality of your All-in-one printer back.

Print functions are generic enough where you don't need to have the most updated driver for it to work. But the scanning functionalities are more complicated.

Find the driver for your computer here:

Page blank when printed


remove the ink cartridges and use a qtip dipped in rubbing alcohol and GENTLY clean the printhead on the cartridge. Reinsert and try printing again. If it prints anything at all, keep going till it becomes normal. If still nothing, replace the ink cartridges.

Printer will not print in black


I will try to help but when you installed the printer and the cartridges, did you remove meaning completely remove the tape on the printed circuit and nozzles of the cartridge? Did you remove all the tapes on the machine? It's not likely that the cartridge is defective when it is that new. Hope this helps.
