Question about Dell A940 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Sounds like it's printing, but nothing appears

It sounds like it's printing but nothing comes out on the paper. I didn't use it for a long time, but the computer says the ink cartridges are pretty full. What do I do?

This sounds odd. Anyway, if printer prints, there's nothing wrong with printer detection.

First and foremost, what type of paper and color of paper are you using? What text/image color do you have in your file being printed?

Prints but nothing is there


If it is printing, but there is nothing on the paper, it would lead me to believe that the print heads would require cleaning. Have you done maintenance on it recently? I do not think it would print if it were out of toner totally but perhaps that is an option also?

My printer print without no writting , paper just come out blank and it's new ank model hp d500


Hi, If you didn't used your inkjet printer for a long time the most common problem is that the nozzles of the print head are clogged with ink, so no ink can go down to the paper and that's why you see a blank sheet of paper. What you can do is Deep Head Cleaning from the printer properties menu a couple of times. If this does not help you will need to replace the print head

Canon MP360 not printing


You probably need a new purge assembly, it draws some ink to both clean and prime the printhead. When it stops working you won't get any ink to the paper.

Nothing prints out on paper.


Did you remove the little sticky tabs from each new cartridge? They allow air in, and ink out.

The print cartridges are not moving correctly, the sound "rough" "bumpy" and the error "print cartridge jam" keeps coming up. Nothing appears to be wrong when I look at them... and the print keeps saying...


Greetings,
Before you making any assumptions about whether or not a cartridge is good or bad, always clean the cartridge and carriage electrical contacts with a cotton swab and alcohol.

HP holds the patents on their cartridge technology. They are not about to share their cash-cow with anyone. All non HP branded cartridges are remanufactured unless someone is counterfeiting them in China.

Canon bjc-80 - no print appears but cartridge & paper move normally


I had this problem too. It turned out there was old dry ink in there clogging up the printerhead and it was fixed after I ran the cleaning programme several times. However I can't for the lifeof me remember how to do that now. I know I found it online but it has since vanished. Maybe check your manual?
