SOURCE: my printer doesint print magenta on test page

Did you use third party ink? Insert a genuine (original) brother ink cart and do the cleaning twice. there should be magenta again. If there is no magenta after that, this could be either because of air in the system (thats why you should do the cleaning twice!) or the nozzels are clogged (and cant be cleaned anymore).

This has to do with the document printing properties. When you are ready to print a document, choose properties and make sure you go through the printer settings under that software.
The test page only verifies the cartridges. The printer properties of the software control the printer during printing.

Prints blank pages


hi jcruisedirec

Test print shows that there is no problem with he printer.
Do this:

Type just one or two words in a new document and try to print. Before printing, look at the print setup and make sure you have the correct printer name selected.
Also when you go to print, there are few options like:

  • Print All
  • Current page
  • Pages
  • Selection
If you attempt to print "selection" without actually selecting a certain portion of the document, you get blank page.
So first check that the correct name of the printer is selected.
Then test printing one page
Hope this will help you. Good luck.

Printing multiple test pages


Check for a sticking button on the printer itself. The big Green button will produce a test print if pushed. Also try disconnecting it from the wall outlet overnight to reset it.

I have a HP Deskjet 1300n printer. I can print my email, pictures and items off the internet, but cannot print any word documents or notepad documents. When I print an excel document, I get an incomplete page-the grid lines will print,and text garbage from a adobe program but not all the text. When I do a test print page, I get an incomplete text page, but do not know how to solve this. I have removed and reloaded the printer software-no improvement. There are no new drivers to be installed.
