    I use Windows XP and after clicking on 'Printing Defaults' there was no option available to cancel the separator page so I clicked on 'Print Processor' and changed the Driver from Winprint to MS XPS and that seems to have fixed that problem, however I'm not sure if it will cause other problems! I had this problem when I initially installed my HP Printer and was able to resolve it but could not remember how. It was not a problem for years but I just recently upgraded to the latest version and that problem reoccured so it's something HP needs to fix.

Clarification please.
"It prints out a blank sheet of typed information"

Is it printing out a blank sheet or is it printing out typed information????? It can't do both.

"it will not display information in the screen" What screen are you talking about?

Brother MFC 4420C prints plain sheets of paper.


To start ensure that is not a software problem.
Go to Control Panel >> Installed Printers. Remove the printer. Install the printer again using the software disk or downloading the driver software from Brother website.
If that does not fix the problem, and the printer prints blank sheets, then it is usually a clogged printhead.
The printheads can be cleaned removing the ink carriage and soaking it in isopropyl alcohol overnight. If that does not work, then the printhead must be replaced.

Try to print mapquest directions and sends blank sheet out


Internet printing can be tricky because everything is in HTML which is not designed for printing but for clicking. So there are links and features but when you try to print it can be blank or half pages. Is there a button on the site that says printable view or print these directions or something similar? If you click on that it should allow you to print the page as you see it on your screen.

How do i make double sided copies for my HP 2840


When you call up your printer (usually [Ctl][P]) tell it to print even numbered pages only, but in reverse order, This means the last page to be printed will be page 2, and it will be face down on the top of the pile (blank side showing) Take the printed sheets and rotate them so the top (head) of the sheet is feeding back into the machine, with the blank sides up. Now call your print up again and tell it to print the odd pages only. The first sheet to be printed will be page 1 which will print on the blank side of page 2, and all the rest will follow in sequence, with the correct sides up. Works every time. The print control is part of the Windows system, so your application should provide the full functionality.

Printing is printing blank sheet of paper


Lots of reasons here but usually it is because the software you are using to print is not compatible with the operating system anymore. Example: you used MS Photo Editor which was discontinued in 2003 and never supported under Windows XP. The one function that is broken is printing...it looks like it printed but a blank sheet of paper comes out. (exactly what you described)

Instead, use MS Picture and Fax Viewer or the follow-on product, MS Office Picture Manager.

If you remove the MS Photo Editor application under Control Panel/Software Programs then your picture files will open with a different (more print compatible and friendly) program.
