OK, Canon will hate me for posting this!!!!!

Remove cartridges.
Remove print head.
Go to sink or tub (stianless steel, not pastic type), pick up roll of paper towel on the way.
Fold several layers of paper towel and place on flat surface.
Run HOT water till HOT.
Turn hot water to dribble.
Run hot water through print head, careful not to wet contacts.
When water is clear coming through print head, place print head on paper towel.
Repeat process until no colour on paper towel.
DAB print head (DO NOT WIPE) inside and out to dry.
You may wish to let print head air dry overnight but I replace it after drying.
Replace print head in printer and replace cartridges.
Start printing again
I do this on all my Canon printrs every 6 months

Install old cartriage, if you still have it, let the machine tell you that it is empty, then go through the install process with one of the new ones.

My printer just prints blank pages.


You should use the HP software (that I assume you probably have installed on your PC) to see if there is any ink left in the printer cartridges. This may sound silly if it is a new printer, but I had an HP printer ship one time with faulty color ink cartridge.
If it is not an empty cartridge, I highly recommend lifting the top of the printer to reveal the ink cartridges. Take them out, and carefully place and seat them back in. Many times incorrectly installed ink cartridges causes printing problems. Hope this helps.
Thanks for using FixYa

Black printing incorrectly


check whether there is an alignment adjustment in the printer driver, the lines may simply be one nozzle out of alignment., or the connector between the print carriage and cartridge may be dirty, causing that one nozzle to misfire

not a guarantee, just something to check

Hi there in the paper handling menu check the paper size settings as it maybe as simple as the incorrect paper size has been set in the machine
