Re: printer isprinting blank pages

Maybe your mp 460 printer is doing the same thing mine is. My problem is that when I try to print from the computer, the printer wants to copy instead, so a blank page comes out. I don't have a solution suggested yet. Jayceedee

I need my lexmaerk z845 to hook up to my vaio laptop so i can print things off

Try a direct USB connection and get the drivers from Lexmark:
The Vista driver should work under Windows 7. Install the drivers before connecting the USB cable.

If the USB connection doesn't work, first try a different cable and then try changing USB ports. The printer does have internet connection options but those can be trickier to diagnose a problem. (Problems with firewalls or Adding the device in the Control Panel are common.)

I hope this helps.

When I send a job to my printer, it prints out a blank page. Why?I have a Canon MP460 printer

Print a test page using the menu controls. If that comes out blank the chances are either the cartridges are empty or the nozzless are clogged. If so clean them with the pink fluid you get with refill kits, or use the cleaning setting of your printer.

Cannon MP460 will feed paper through printer but not print

Check your printer sharing in the system preferences... make sure it's on.. then when you get the print window, look for your printer under shared printers... try it that way... worked for me on my wifi network here.

Printer won't print

I have had a similar problem to this: I have had a BJC 80 for nearly 5 years and carried it around with my laptop using Win 98 and a par - par cable. It worked beautifully and successfully - so much so that when i saw a number of ink tanks going at very cheap volume prices in PC World i picked up a lot of them. Changing to an XP meant that i had to keep on using the par to par cable via a docking station but prevented my use of it with my new laptop - so when i brought it out of retirement it gave the blank printing problems yoiu described. By checking some error messages that it expected a black cartridge (which is what was installed) i found that inthe setup the software indicated it defaulted to colour cartridges. By changing this on the computer, it still printed blank pages but by changing the cartridge to colour it sprang into life when the set up asked for colour. I tried 2 other print heads which i had (3-4 years old) but still blank paper when printing to a black cartridge. I am now awaiting a new black print head carrier to see if it makes a difference. When trying with my laptop using XP and a par - usb cable it does not work at all. I have removed the sware driver for the Canon 80 and manually installed the one for the Canon 85 but no luck in printing to par - usb at this time
