My printer prints blank pages when I want to print files from my computer, but works fine without a computer

If you don't use the printer often (at least once a month) you probably have cartridges drying up on you. If by chance you have an Epson or canon, the print head is inside the printer, so regardless of how many new cartridges you put in there, you will encounter the same problem.

If you are using a generic or third party ink, it may be too dense or of low quality clogging yourprint head.

You can try to run a bunch of print head cleanings. (your manual will tell you how) If by about 8 you are not seeing any improvement start with a new printer. Do a print head cleaning once a month ALWAYS as a preventative measure. This will ensure you get a long life out of your printer, and a top quality print from your cartridges.

Printer will not print red. The red cartridge seems fine, with ink flowing freely, but it won't print onto the page.

its the problem of print head in your printer. You are not the only one facing this problem there are many other users facing this same canon printer users out of 10 users ---- 8 users face this problem.
Now I will explain the problem
In the printer where you insert the cartridges is called the carriage there is a part called PRINT HEAD. In the print head there are tiny – tiny holes from where the ink passes.when you insert the cartridge in the carriage /head of the printer the ink from the cartridge passes from the head.but if the head is got blocked then the ink will not pass from the head and you get no print out still with the new brand in the printer there is a in built cleaning assembly , so when you give the command of cleaning from your pc/laptop the inbuilt cleaning assembly tries to clean the blocked ink in the tiny holes of the head.but if the ink is got stuck up hard the cleaning assembly in the printer does not have that much power to clean the ink in the head.the other procedure to clean the head is a manual this procedure the head needs to be removed from the printer by disassembling the printer.but in this case out of 100 only 4 to 5 heads gets cleaned and start working but that also don’t last long.its not any guarantee that how much the manually cleaned head will work.
In some cases it has been seen that ink gets used only in cleaning but after inserting new cartridges the printer starts working.if you have inserted new cartridges in the printer and still don’t get any printout then its advisable that you go for any other brand printer.hp is the best brand of printer. Or the other option is you take the printer to local printer repair shop to get the head manually cleaned if you at present don’t want to invest in new printer.a repair center have some special tools to clean the print head its 50 ---- 50 can try that first.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

I think i inserted the print head wrong in my canon pixma mp980 printer, how do i remove it?

I had the same problem and this is how I fixed it.

Seems that you can position the print head in the device a couple of ways and the way I did it was wrong. When looking at the print head I could see a white piece of plastic at the bottom of the print head. This piece of plastic was what was jammed and preventing the print head from being removed. I used a small screw driver blade to free it by inserting the screw driver on the right side of the white piece of plastic and twisting it. The head popped out and then I was able to re-insert it.

Poor design by Canon - should not be able to get the head stuck like that...

Print Head install

Hello Dear,
The Print Head in your printer is physically damaged and so even though it is present and installed it will not be detected by the Printer, you need to purchase and install a new print head for your printer.
Warm Regards,
