Canon PIXMA1500 prints blank pages

My Canon PIXMA ip 1500 prints blank pages. I went to maintenance menu and tried several cleaning functions but still can't get it to print at all. I also checked the ink cartridges. The manual gives all kinds of troublshooting about different types of printing problems but nothing about printing blank pages.

Canon pixma ip 1500. Will not print black ink. Have cleaned, and deep cleaned nozzles. Color prints good, black does not print at all.


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

My printer doesnot print evenly. leaves a lot of blank spaces.


Navigate to the printer's Properties menu, then select the "Maintenance" tab. Click the "Cleaning" icon and follow the instructions to clean the appropriate Ink Group. This step might need to be executed several times before improvement will be seen.

I put a new black ink cardridge in my iP 1500 Canon printer and it is printing blank pages


how about colored pages? this normally means that the head is already busted. Unfortunately you will need to take this to cannon to get the heads fixed.

My canon i90 printer wont print. it appears to working perfect but the result is a blank paper. i have installed new cartiages & run all maintenance functions.


It sounds like the printhead is plugged, but there is also a firmware upgrade that helps position the printhead for better cleaning, Canon suggests you try deep cleaning 3 times in printer maint. from the properties menu before replacing the printhead. I use a syringe to put a couple drops of water on the cleaning pads on the right to help with cleaning.

Canon i965 prints blank pages


Yes those printheads do go bad, they burn out just like a light bulb. If you emptied cartridges then the purge/cleaning assembly is working properly, and the only other option is the expensive printhead.

Canon MP500 printer


We have the same problem. I removed the cartridges, then removed the print head. There was lots of ink gunk on the print head. I cleaned it and the problem disappeared completely for a few days but is now back. I suspect the print head needs to be replaced. Still working on it.
