My Canon Pixma MX882 is not printing though lots of ink. Paper goes through when I press print on my PC but nothing is printed


Print a test sheet to see if the printer is OK. If tthe sheet prints fine has this printer worked on this computer before? Did you change anything or update anything? You may have the wrong driver installed or the cable could be defective if it has worked before.

My HP 3550 deskjet will simply not print. It goes through the motions and seems to be printing --but the page is blank or very faint. I have already cleaned and re-calibrated the printer


Check ink-levels -- no ink means no printing.
Run a few more "print-head-cleaning" cycles -- clogged ink-jets cannot spray ink onto the paper.

No black ink is appearing on paper


If this is an old printer. The nozzles might be clogged. A Q-tip with a little alcohol might get some of that dried ink out. Be careful it could get messy. Also see if your printer has a built in cleaning test. you might have to access the test from the printer tools on your computer.

Deskjet 930c printer


Good for you for being on the internet and posting the question! The yellow light usually means, paper, ink or a jam. If it's got paper and ink, check for jams and even power cycle it and see if that helps. And try printing, it may just be reporting low ink. Good luck!
