Blank pages printing out/or smudged pages(new cartridge)

Hi, I thought my black ink cartridge had run out after 3 weeks - I'd hardly used it. The paper hadn't fed through once or twice and it was directly after this the prob started - it looked like the ink was running out as lots of letter on page were smudged then there was just a blank page coming out. I bought a new cartridge and it didn't solve problem - I'm still getting either some smudged letters or just nothing at all. It's obviously not lack of ink but some other problem. Any ideas?!

    Color prints good, but no Black. New cartridge, still no. Printed OK on Monday, and never heard from it since. Am using Sony VGN-N320E, Vista Premium.

Paper feeds through the printer but nothing prints. I thought I was out of ink, so bought new black ink and replaced it. The first page printed but the next sheets came out blank. It was making noise...


the problem will be on the cartridge reader. you should see if the ink disposal system is running as fluid as possible.
Check on the driver also, uninstall then reinstall it back.

Brother DCP-150C - just installed a new black cartridge (changed colour cartridges last week!) - printer will print but page comes out blank??


This may be because ink is clogged in the printhead. ? Place the clogged cartridge in about 1/4 - 1/2 inch of warm water for a few minutes. When ink starts to slowly leak out take the cartridge out of the water and dry it using a soft cloth to "Q-tip." Then place it back in your printer and run the print head cleaning utility that comes with your printer software. You may have to run this 2-4 times before printing quality is reestablished. If your print head is destroyed, as can happen, you will have to buy a cartridge and refill that cartridge before it is fully empty.

It is not printing using black ink. I have


Sounds like your black print head may be clogged. You can get a new one from Precision Roller for $60. Another fact that would confirm that your print head is clogged is if you let the printer sit for more than a few weeks without printing with it.

My printer is printing blank pages What is wrong?


You may clean the cartridge by following the steps given below:

1. Remove the cartridge or cartridges from the printer.
2. Get a damp paper towel.
3. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.
4. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean.
5. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
6. Snap the cartridges back into the printer.

Next, I'd like you to attempt this printer self-test by following the steps given below:

1. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer.
2. Press and hold the button on the printer panel.
3. Reconnect the power cord and keep holding the button on the printer panel until the printer starts to pull paper.
4. The printer should now print a test page. Please note that the test is continuous. To stop the test, disconnect the power cord.

The self-test should at least print out a set of either black or color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously). Should this test fail, try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with only the color cartridge installed. (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.

If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, let us know.
