What model are you using?, if you are using windows as your operating system all you got to do is go to the printers folder, find your printer icon right click then left click on printing preferences, on top there is a tab for maintenance, either use the cleaning cycle(3x to 6x in a row) of use the option replace ink button then wipe it off with a soft cloth.

just to set your expectations if it was printing blank the possibility is that you might have clogged nozzles.

i have tried to remove the inks and used my wd40 on its nozzle (pin that punches the hole on the ink) let it dry for 2-3hours. then try again and for me it worked. it will clear out the clogg

Print sounds but blank paper


Try a few print head deep cleanings if that does not help then you could try soaking the print head in a shallow plate of hot distilled water. Soak the tip of the print head only in no more than 1/8th to 1/4 inch of water.OR

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.

1320 printer given blank print hjo wcan i solve


This may be because ink is clogged in the print head. Place the clogged cartridge in about 1/4 - 1/2 inch of warm water for a few minutes. When ink starts to slowly leak out take the cartridge out of the water and dry it using a soft cloth to "Q-tip." Then place it back in your printer and run the print head cleaning utility that comes with your printer software. You may have to run this 2-4 times before printing quality is reestablished. If your print head is destroyed, as can happen, you will have to buy a cartridge and refill that cartridge before it is fully empty.

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.

Verify they are installed correctly.
Remove the print head or ink tanks properly following the procedure below.
1. Confirm that the printer is powered on and open the top cover. The print head moves to the replacement position.

Note: When the top cover is opened more than ten minutes, the print head moves to the right side. If this occurs, close the top cover, and open it again.

2. Open the paper output tray and pull down the inner cover.

3. Remove the ink tanks by pressing the tab of each tank.

Note: Handle the ink tanks with care so that your clothes and surrounding area do not get soiled. When replacing multiple ink tanks, make sure to replace one by one.

Horizontal streaks on pages


Streaks at 2.82 inch intervals: Horizontal marks at this interval are the result of a mark on the fusing roller of the printer. In some cases, these marks can be cleared up by running a cleaning page through the unit. Laser Printer Cleaning sheets can be purchased at your local printer/office supply store. If the marks persist, this can indicate a more serious problem with the fusing roller that would require service attention.

Streaks at 3.74 inch intervals: Horizontal marks at this interval are the result of a mark on the image drum of the printer. There is no way to repair a damaged photosensitive image drum, so in the case that it is scratched or otherwise damaged, the entire CRU (toner/drum cartridge) would require replacement to clear up these marks.

Printing intermediately


When you say print an inch then blank an inch. Does the paper move and the head work and imply leaves blank paper? Or do mean the printer stops a while then picks up from where it left off. Is this a bubble jet?- That is does the cartridge come with the heads built in and a contact strip on the side - Or is it the other sort where the cartridge is an ink tank and the head stays in the machine, but are removable? If you get a completed document but with blanks this is a head problem. If you get a complete full document but the takes breaks this is a computer spooler problem A head problem Take the cartridge and/or head out of machine and stand in a saucers with a tissue damped in a water /alcohol mix -Windex, or car screen wash, even Jack Danials or your favorite spirit. When the tissue is thoroughly discoloured[leave overnight]- replace and give the machine ar un and come back. If it is taking breaks but eventually giving a complete document then check out drivers/Scratch disk and software on the computer.
