CANONPIXMA /THE PRINTER DOSE NOT PRINT AND IT COMES OF BLANK THE PAGE


Hi, If you didn't used your inkjet printer for a long time the most common problem is that the nozzles of the cartridges are clogged with ink, so no ink can go down to the paper and that's why you see a blank sheet of paper. The other option is that you think you have ink in the cartridges but in fact it was finished. I suggest you to replace the cartridges. Hope this helps Alex

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.

I455 printing totally blank pages


Don't know that particular model but try this.

Sounds like the lines are a bit plugged and are running dry again after the script page.

Never leave an inkjet or deskjet for more than a week or so without using it because the ink wells can dry up.

Take a Q-tip and dip it in alcohol.
Remove the cartridges and soak each hole with a brand new Q-tip.
Let it dry.
You may have to do this a few times before you get results.
Now put in the cartridges.
Go to
Start
Control Panel
printers
Click on your printer
Go to Properties
Go to Maintenace
There should be some kind of thing in there that will allow you to clean and deep clean your cartridges.

I have recovered many "seemingly hopeless" printers this way. A lot of printers that can be rescued end up in e-waste, wasting a lot of money.
Look in the yellow pages and find you local dealer if all else fails. These people are often quite helpful.

Have you removed the pull off tape from the top of the cartridges, it lets air in enabling the ink to flow, easy mistake!

Lexmark X1270 Not printing.


Did you put the right numbers of the cartridges?

Blank printout


If you are able to drag out your users manual, most lazer printers have a self cleaning process for the head, which takes around 3-5 minutes to complete, after that try to run a test page to ensure the colors are working fine.

Failing that, unless the printer is brand new, and or unless it has been sitting ( unused - regardless of age ) the print heads can dry out leaving a blockage ... hence, no ink, hence blank page.

The only other suggestion after running a Print head clean, would be to replace or refill the ink cartridges.
