Re: HP Deskjet 712c prints only blank

I had the same problem and what worked for me was to make a PDF and then check the box "print color as black" I only say this is a fix because I was desperate. I realize this is a time consuming workaround. also if you are going to do this make sure that your printer settings are for Color but then the print color as black box is checked. hope that helps.....

My HP deskjet 2050 all-in-one printer only shoots out blank paper and won't print. It used to say there was no paper in it, which there was. It scans & prints just fine - just won't print...

Any error messages on the printer digital screen or the desktop? I take it the "The ink is fine" means that there is ink in the cartridges!

Try a test print via the Control Panel> Printers and Faxes> properties > Print test page.

My HP DeskJet 712c InkJet Printer's "ink light" won't stop blinking!! I have tried changing ink cardridges, checking for paper jams, unplugging and replugging cords and re-starting computer. None...


Give this a try:

1. Power off your printer
2. Remove and reinsert the cartridges. You should hear a "click" when properly seated.
3. Power on printer.
4. If light is out, print a test page for realignment.

Note: Be certain that the tab is removed from the cartridges and you are using "genuine" HP cartridges.

Hope this helps.

My hp 712c printer prints only the pink band when I run a color test. I have replaced the original cartridge. Any ideas about the cause and solution.

The cause is either:
* clogged ink-jets not allowing yellow & blue ink to move from the ink-cartridge onto the paper;
* busted electronics inside the printer, causing the ink-jets to not "spray" at all.

Use the software to try a "print-head-cleaning" cycle.
If that fails to improve things, it's time to replace the printer.

HP 920c Deskjet feeds blank paper constantly. Will not print. Just shoots paper out.

deskjet 920c will not print, green light flashes and blank paper comes out. Printer will print test page perfectly.

Trying to install HP Deskjet 712c on computer with windows xp

You shouldn't need any software to print to this printer under XP, just let XP find the best or closest match to your printer and install it. It might be a Deskjet 700 or something but it'll work as a printer. The old software was probably for Windows 98.

HP 712C Printer won't print envelopes

hi dear

Choose envelopes that are close to 20-lb paper in weight and thickness. Also, make sure that the adhesive on the envelope is capable of withstanding the heat that the fuser puts out to keep the printing on the page. If you don’t, the envelopes will come out of the printer already sealed. If envelopes are coming out of the printer wrinkled, they may be too stiff for the paper path. Open the rear of the printer and let them exit at that location instead.
