Printer prints out blank pages


Follow these steps:

1. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the sheet feeder.
Turn off your printer.
Hold down the paper button as you press the power button to turn the printer back on. Hold down both buttons until the power light begins to flash, then release the buttons.

The printer prints its test page, which includes a nozzle check. Does the paper print out without any gaps or with gaps? If there are do this:

2. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the sheet feeder.
Make sure the printer is on and the ink light is off.
Right-click the printer icon in the bottom right corner of your screen (the taskbar) and select Head Cleaning.

Follow the on-screen instructions to start the cleaning cycle, which lasts about 1 minute. The power light flashes throughout the cleaning cycle and stays on green when the cycle is finished.

Caution:
Never turn off the printer during a cleaning cycle or you may damage it.

When the power light stops flashing and remains on, you can check to see if the nozzles are clean. Click Print Nozzle Check Pattern and click Print. Check the printed nozzle check pattern to see if there are gaps in the lines.

If there are no gaps, click Finish.

If there are gaps or the pattern is faint, click Clean to clean the print head again.
You may need to clean the print head up to 4 times. You can also turn off the printer and wait at least 6 hours. Then try printing again.

If this doesn't work then double check that you have the toner cartridges in correctly. If you do then your print head is broken and/or burned out and it's best to just replace the printer. Fixing it would cost more than the printer itself

Help. Cannot print from black ink cartridge


Hi ....

There could be many reason for black ink not printing. You could try couple of steps starting with cleaning the print head ... Follow the below steps to clean the print head ...

After confirming that the cable is connected (if applicable) and the printer is powered on, perform the following.
Note: Standard print head cleaning can also be performed by holding down the <Resume> on the printer until the power light flashes one time. Deep print head cleaning (a more power process that uses more ink) can only be performed from the computer.
  1. Open the Printers folder.

    For Windows Vista
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel', 'Hardware and Sound', and then click on 'Printers'. Note: If you are in 'Classic' view, Click 'Printers' directly from the 'Control Panel'.
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.
    For Windows XP Home Edition
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel,' 'Printers and Other Hardware,' and 'Printers and Faxes.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.

    For Windows XP Professional Edition
    • Click 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, and 'Printers and Faxes.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.

    For Windows 2000/Me/98
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, and 'Settings,' then 'Printers.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.

  2. Right-click the printer icon and select 'Properties'.

  3. Click the Maintenance tab, and then click the 'Cleaning' icon.

    ip1500_win_cleaning1.jpg

  4. Select which nozzles should be cleaned.

    i80_win_clean_3.jpg

  5. Click 'OK' to continue with the print head cleaning. The power lamp will flash and print head cleaning will start. Do not perform any other operations until print head cleaning completes.

    ip1500_win_cleaning2.jpg

  6. When the print head cleaning has finished, print the nozzle check pattern by clicking on the 'OK' button to determine if further cleaning is necessary.

    i80_win_clean_4.jpg

  7. Once the page has printed examine the nozzle check pattern.

    ip1500_nozchk_pattern_good.jpg

  8. If the pattern does not print correctly, click the 'OK' button to return to the Maintenance tab.

  9. Click the 'Deep Cleaning' icon.

    win_maint_deep_clean1.jpg

  10. Click the 'Execute' button after selecting the nozzles to be cleaned.

    i80_win_deep_clean_3.jpg

  11. Confirm the message, and then click the 'OK' button to start the Deep cleaning.

    ip1500_win_deep_cleaning3.jpg

  12. The Power lamp will blink and print head deep cleaning will start. Deep cleaning completes when the Power lamp stops blinking and lights. (It will take about a minute for the Power lamp to stop blinking and light solid.)

  13. Print another nozzle test pattern. If the pattern still does not print correctly, replace any ink tank that may be low, and then perform another deep print head cleaning.

  14. If printing is still not satisfactory, there may be a problem with the print head or the printer may need to be repaired.
This resolves the problem most of the time but if this does not work, please just leave me a note and we'll move to the next step which is checking the cartridge installation to check if its inctalled correctly or not ....

Please vote if this helps .... Cheers :)

7. If the nozzle check pattern has no gaps in its lines, click FINISH. If the pattern has any gaps, click CLEAN to clean the printhead again.
