SOURCE: Blank pages from printer

Ahhh We love printers don't we??? Not!!! How did you clean the nozzles. Did you use the printers own maintenance system or did you do it manually. The printer can never clean them as well as you can manually, and this is probably 90% of the cause of blank pages. Clean rollers too while you are at it. Use a proper cleaning solution, and cotton buds, and clean where the cartridges go in, and the heads too. The next possibility is that the printer is set to pause, or print offline, go to your print settings, scroll down to properties and make sure thes two items are not checked. If so, unckeck them. Lastly, the drivers itself could be corrupted, and may need to download new updated drivers from epson website. Good luck

SOURCE: My printing displays wrong ink levels and prints blank pages

If your cartridge is new (or full) and you know that not just from ink levels display, then you did not used the printer for a while (at least a month) and the nozzles of the cartridge are clogged. If u used the cartridghe 4 or 5 moths ago, then the whole cartridge is dryed out, so get out and get yourself a new cartridge.

If it's just a month, then you should put a paper-tissue on a small plate (like a coffee-cup plate), then put some boiling water on it, just 2~3mm of water over the tissue.
Put the cartridge with the nozzles part downside on the tissue, in the hot water.
Let it stay there in the water 30 min.
Put the cartridge in an other clean tissue, than shake it strongy as if you want to force ink to get out trough the nozzles. Then clean gentle the nozzle part of the cartridge on some sheets of tissue.
Install the cartridges it in the printer and run a few cleaning processes from the printers maintenance software.

If the cartridge is new and just installed in the printer, and you have the inklevels but it does not print, then get it out of the printer and back to the store, they should replace it for you. I hope you removed the protective plastic stripe that covers the nozzles before installing the cartridge?...

OK, let ne know please how things evolve.

Hope it helped you, rate the solution.

Almoust forgot: ink levels are displayed by Lexmark inkprinters by estimating the ink consumed trough you printing process, it has no sensors in the cartridge. It's just kind of a counter, you can evan set an empty cartridge to be seen as a full one.

SOURCE: Printer doesn't print even with new ink cartridges.

Take out the Cartridge & get a new one if the problem persists then get the printer software reinstalled & if still it is not printing then clean up the cartridge head with cotton swabs dipped in hot water!
This should clean the head & black will be on paper

DO THIS AS FINAL REFUGE
If still its not working then there's some problem in the copper contact surface in the printer on the cradle so get a new Printer.

Lexmark wireless printer 1400 series prints blank pages


Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues with your model:

  1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
  2. Go to Programs.
  3. Go to Lexmark Z1400 Series folder.
  4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print cartridge nozzles.


After printing the test page, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Printer prints blank page


Is this a brand new printer? What is the make and model of your printer? Are the ink cartridges brand new? Sometimes when the printer driver becomes corrupted it will print out blank page (page after page) I would reinstall the printer driver that goes to your printer and then restart your computer and try to print a new page.

Printing Blank Pages


Try checking the ink cartridges and make sure they have ink in them or it will keep printing blank pages. Then try printing a test page by going to control panel, clicking on printers and faxes and right clicking on your printer and going to properties. Then go all the way down to the bottom of the page and click print test page. It will clean the printer cartridges and align them to print correctly. It should work after that.

Lexmark z640 has stopped printing - goes through the motions but no ink on page


Some third party cartridges will not work with your printer as they are remanufactured from used cartridges.
It is more expensive to buy genuine Lexmark ink, but atleast you know it will work.
You may try reinstalling the driver before buying new ink.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck.

Slow and blank printing


sounds like clogged print heads. do a clean print heads, then a test page, and see how that goes. Like a sink that gets clogged, when it's not used, print heads need exercise, otherwise, they can get some gunk on them, and no more printing.
