    Same as before. It makes the same normal processing sounds but producing blank pages. This happens when I try printing from PC, copying from platten, or trying to print a fax. Did I mention that I also reploaded printer driver with no improvement?
    Thanks

Hi There
Try this and also try uninstall the driver close down the PC and restart and put back the printer driver, dont forget make sure you have the CD or driver first.

Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok.

There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

On my mfc 260C the black ink print keeps fading to nil but is ok each time for about 20 pages after pressing the ink management button. No problem ever with colour print.


You may need to run the cleaning fuction on your printer to clean the black print heads.

Every month (once a month), you need to clean your print heads to prevent your heads from clotting.

You are now seeing the symptoms of what happens when you do not constantly maintain your cleanliness of your print heads.

If that does not work, try buying a new black cartrige to see if the original black cartrige is defective.

If the above does not work, you may have a failing carrage and may need replacing

But do all of above first and get back to me with what happend during your diagnosis of your issues.

Printer printing balnk pages


HI i am Vortash .. chances are that the head jets have become blocked , if the printer maintance system ( ink purge and clean etc ) does not cure the problem you may try what I do periodicaly to keep my printer clean ..
  1. Get an old cartrige and make a small hole in the top ( same as you would do if you bought a universal ink kit ) then instead ok ink fill it with either Ink flush , or alchahol .. then put it in the printer and print a few test pages ..this cleans and purges all old ink and makes the printer print clearer ... hope this helps regards Vortash

Epson c84 printer not printing after installing new ink cartidges


Hi, Linda
You may buy cartriges of different producers.
Depending on producer on them can be or be not special yellow detachable labels.
These are an yellow labels must be removed from them. Then put cartridges back. And try to clean head 4-5 times. And check nozzle test.
Good luck.

Blank printout


If you are able to drag out your users manual, most lazer printers have a self cleaning process for the head, which takes around 3-5 minutes to complete, after that try to run a test page to ensure the colors are working fine.

Failing that, unless the printer is brand new, and or unless it has been sitting ( unused - regardless of age ) the print heads can dry out leaving a blockage ... hence, no ink, hence blank page.

The only other suggestion after running a Print head clean, would be to replace or refill the ink cartridges.

Printing inkless printing


Gecko17 How old is your cartridge? is there is enought ink to print your document? If so then... Take out the cartridge carefully from your printer without touching any contact points, heads etc. Clean the head's of your printer cartridge carefully by using head cleaner fluid. After that, reinstall your cartrige and please try to print again. If this deosn't solve your problems, you may need to replace your cartridge with new one. thanks

Blank pages from printer


Ahhh We love printers don't we??? Not!!! How did you clean the nozzles. Did you use the printers own maintenance system or did you do it manually. The printer can never clean them as well as you can manually, and this is probably 90% of the cause of blank pages. Clean rollers too while you are at it. Use a proper cleaning solution, and cotton buds, and clean where the cartridges go in, and the heads too. The next possibility is that the printer is set to pause, or print offline, go to your print settings, scroll down to properties and make sure thes two items are not checked. If so, unckeck them. Lastly, the drivers itself could be corrupted, and may need to download new updated drivers from epson website. Good luck
