Re: printing blank pages

I am working on the same problem. While you will not like the
answer here it is for the canon mf6530. What is causing it
is the shutter over the laser is failing to open. There for
it blocks all exposer. A temperary fix is to carefully lift the
shutter and tape it open using black electrical tape. Then
try a few prints you should have an image if this is your
issue as it is mine. I do not recommending running it in
this condition very long. When I find the final answer I
will attempt to post it.

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.

I've had this happen twice with the CX5400. I've fixed it both times by following the instructions on this page: (This involves dissassembling your printer so it's not for the faint of heart!)

If the Nozzle Check Pattern page prints correctly and completely, the problem may lie within your software settings, the interface cable, or your computer.

To remove and install only the Printer Driver for your CX6600, please perform the following steps:

Driver Removal

1. Go to START then SETTINGS and click on CONTROL PANEL ( START and CONTROL PANEL in Win XP) and double-click ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS.
2. To remove the printer portion select EPSON PRINTER SOFTWARE and click on REMOVE. Ensure the correct printer model is selected on the uninstall utility.
3. Click OK and follow the prompts. If asked to confirm removal of any personal settings or shared files, click YES or OK.
4. Once the components are removed, power off your unit and disconnect the USB cable.


1. Go to
2. Under Welcome to Epson Support click on ALL-IN-ONES and select FLATBED and then your Stylus model name. Under the Drivers & Downloads section select WINDOWS.
3. Download the most current driver for your printer and operating system.
4. Follow prompts through survey and license agreement and downloading will begin. When prompted, choose to SAVE this file; SAVE it to your desktop so it is easy to find.
5. Once download is complete, close your internet browser. To install simply double-click the file you downloaded and follow the prompts.
6. Do not reconnect the unit until the point in the printer driver installation where you are prompted to check that the unit is on and connected to the computer. Installation should complete automatically.

SOURCE: The printer

You may need to clean the printhead: (make sure you have paper in the tray)

1) Press <Menu>

2) Press <Up> or <Down> arrow to select "Ink" then press <OK>

3) Press <Up> or <Down> arrow to select "Test print" then press <OK>

4) Press <Up> or <Down> arrow to select "Print quality" then press <OK>

5) Press the <Color Start> button. The quality test sheet will be printed. Check this printout for gaps in any of the colors or black in the pattern across the page.

6) The display on the printer will ask if the print quality is OK:

- If all lines are clear and visible, select "Yes"

- If gaps appear in the pattern, select "No"

7) If you select "No" the display asks (in turn) if the print quality is OK for black, and the three colors.

Respond "Yes" or "No" accordingly. (In this manner you may clean just the black or color nozzle that is giving you the problem)

8) The display asks if you want to start cleaning - choose "Yes"

9) After cleaning is finished press the <Color Start> button - the print quality sheet will print again.

At this point you may determine that another cleaning cycle is necessary. You may need to repeat cleanings (up to five times) to resolve the problem. Any more than that indicates a problem that may need brother customer support.

10) When the print quality test sheet meets with your approval, you may exit by pressing <Stop/Exit>

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.

Print page comes out blank

If the cartridges are old too this may be a problem. When ink gets old it can clog the cartridges. If they are old replace them with new ones. If they are new ones did you peel the protective covering off before you inserted the cartridges? Hopes this helps
