My cannon D680 prints a blank page after every print or copy job. the pages print fine but at the end it always feeds 1 blank page. what can it be?

See if there is an option in your settings to print a "job owner" page after each job. That's not what it's actually called but I had a similar issue with a Canon printer and found that you can have the printer automatically print a page after the job that identifies who sent the job to the printer. It's the last page so it lands on top of a finished job and separates it from other jobs sent to the printer before you have a chance to get yours. If you don't have network identifications associated with users it may just print a blank page as a separator.

Lexmark T640 LCD blank..

To check if this is a hardware issue, please print a menu settings page. The purpose of this diagnostic is to check if this is a software issue or a hardware issue.

1. Press Menu to display Menus.
2. Press "down" until the "check" appears next to Reports.
3. Press "Check".
4. Press "down" until the "check" appears next to Menu Settings Page.
5. Press "check".
The message Printing Menus Settings appears on the display.
The printer returns to the Ready state after the menu settings page prints.

If the menu settings page printed without the dots, this would be a software issue. In that case, please call our Technical Support Hotline on (800) 539-6275.

If I am not printing continuously, the printer does not print the first 5-6 printing jobs. When print job sent to the printer I get a blank page (printing job can be more than one page). After the blank...

Hi there,
It seems that " Print on both sides (Manually)" is selected in printing options., when you want to print any document Go to file Print > select printer and click properties and disable the Manual printing option in device settings.
You should be able to get printing without errors,
if the option is not checked then check for the default paper tray,
save the settings and reboot your laptop/desktop and restart printer as well so that settings should work properly and any given command gets clear from memory, If these all settings are ok, Uninstall the printer driver and download the latest version drivers from HP website and install see links below

If you require more assistance feel free to reply to this post

I have a HPC7280 all in one. it is asking to insert a memory card for copies. why? how do i get around that.

It sounds to me like you have selected an option to print directly from a memory card at one time. Here are excerpts from the user manual for your machine to change printer settings:

Change the print settings

You can customize the print settings of the HP All-in-One to handle nearly any print


Windows users

Before you change print settings, you should decide if you want to change the settings

for the current print job only, or if you want to make the settings the defaults for all

future print jobs. How you display print settings depends on whether or not you want

to apply the change to all future print jobs or just to the current print job.

To change the print settings for all future jobs

1. In the HP Director, click Settings, point to Print Settings, and then click Printer


2. Make changes to the print settings, and click OK.

To change the print settings for the current job

1. On the File menu in your software application, click Print.

2. Make sure the HP All-in-One is the selected printer.

3. Click the button that opens the Properties dialog box.

Depending on your software application, this button might be called Properties,

Options, Printer Setup, Printer, or Preferences.

4. Make changes to the print settings, and click OK.

5. Click Print or OK in the Print dialog box to print the job.

I believe that this should help you get around your issue. Here is a link to the entire user manual for future reference.

We recently started having a problem printing from PCs to a KM C451 with a user/pswd specified -- the print job goes to the "Save" tab on the job history but never prints and does not go to a user box....

This is caps sensitive. Keep this in mind. Also, if you are using Vista, the driver may not be aquiring the setting properly to allow printing using authentication. Check to ensure that the settings for authentication or account track match the settings on the MFP. If this all doesnt work, (depending on the application youa re printing from) try turning "print without Authentication" to allow or enable.

Zebra TLP 2844-Z Test page print within Win XP

This printer requires special software to print labels with. It uses a unique PCL language to work with. Thats why when you use these printers with Fedex or UPS software, it typically downloads forms first before working.

Zebra used to see a label designer program to work with it. You might want to check with them to see if they still carry it.

Oh, it's the colors you are having a problem with. Then you probably want to perform an Auto Gradation Adjustment. It's on pages 162-163 of the manual found here:

Here is what it says:

Auto Gradation Adjustment
Auto Gradation Adjustment is a color calibration for the copier and printer. An Auto Gradation Adjustment compensates for differences between the actual and the expected toner densities for each color. An Auto Gradation Adjustment should be performed whenever there is a noticeable change in the appearance (quality) of the output, particularly changes in color
tones or densities. Performing an Auto Gradation Adjustment on a regular basis will help to maintain consistent color quality over time.

NOTE: Since an Auto Gradation Adjustment can affect all jobs for all users, it is recommended that this procedure be performed only by the Machine Administrator.

Copy Job - Text Compensates tones when a text original is copied.
Copy Job - Photo Compensates tones when a photo original is copied.
Print Job Compensates tones when printing with controller line screen.
Network Controller - 1 Compensates tones when printing with Network Controller screen type 1.
Network Controller - 2 Compensates tones when printing with Network Controller screen type 2.

NOTE: Printing the chart for Auto Gradation does not increase the meter count.
NOTE: When gradation adjustment is executed, the following
changes will be made to default copy settings set in System Settings mode: Copy density = Normal or Auto, Color Shift = Normal, Saturation = Normal, Color Balance = 0, Sharpness = 0.
NOTE: When Print or Network Controller gradation adjustment is executed, the printer’s output profiles for the available screen types are compensated.

1 On the Image Quality Adjustment screen, select Auto Gradation Adjustment.
2 Load 8.5x11 inch or A4 paper into Tray 5 (Bypass). Move the paper guide to gently touch the edge of the paper.

3 Select the desired gradation adjustment screen:
• Copy Job - Text
• Copy Job - Photo
• Print Job
• Network Controller - 1
• Network Controller - 2
Press Start. The Adjustment Chart is output.
4 Place the Adjustment Chart face down on the Document Glass with both Magenta color patches against the left side of the glass.
5 Place 5 sheets of white paper on top of the Adjustment Chart and close the DADF. Select Start.
6 To continue Auto Gradation Adjustment with other screens, repeat steps 2 to 5. When you are finished, select Close until the System Settings screen is displayed.
7 Select Exit to exit the System Settings mode.

Lexmark t420 all leds are on

What this light sequence means:
• The printer is processing a request to cancel the current print
• The printer is resetting to the user default settings. Any active
print jobs are canceled. A user default setting is one you select
and save which is different from the factory default setting. A
user default setting remains in effect until you make another
selection and apply it or until you restore factory default settings.
What you can do:
Wait for the message to clear. It clears when the printer finishes
processing the cancellation request or when it resets to the user
default settings.
