You're cartridges have dried out and/or you print head has blocked.

I'd try new cartridges and use the printer toolbox to clean the print head. You printer toolbox would have been installed when you installed you printer. I'd click on Start - All Programmes and look for Canon.

I have a Canon MX700 and suddenly I began to have problems with the color. I am using Canon ink cartridges but all my color jobs come out with only blue and black, no magenta or yellow. Every time I run...


This worked for me:
Unplug (not just turn off) the printer. Wait at least 20 seconds, then plug it back in. Hold the Feed Switch down, then turn on the printer (continue to hold the Feed Switch down). When the printer finishes cycling the paper feed, release the Feed Switch. Copy anything and it should print. You're good to go.

G600 printer dock used about 6 months ago. Only


Yes, maybe the ink dry out. Try a deep cleaning several times, from the printer options.
If you don't use the printer, you should weekly print a test page to avoid this problem.

Prints blank page my lexmarkx5150 all in one


Okay, I know this may sound silly but make sure the document you are trying to print is not using a White Font. Don't laugh, I've actually see this once before. Next, try a stand alone printer test Disconnect the printer from the PC and using the printers panel go to Maintenance Menu and either print out a test page or a demo document. If that works, then re-connect your printer to the PC and using the printer's driver, print a test page. Last step, make sure that all of the printer setup are the same, especially the Page Set-up from the application. Don

Every time I turn on my printer, a Dell 948, it prints a page


Hi
We have 30+ printers... which we use for testing empty inkjet cartridges prior to refilling with ink. Basically we inject a little Magic Inkjet Flush directly into the dried print head which allows us to unclog them. Then we soak them overnight on Magic Pillows which gives just enough to do a PRINT TEST next day.

As some of our printers always try the alignment test here´s what we do...

1. Pull paper stack slightly away from printer, when it tries to print it thinks it is out of paper and should offer a cancel print option.

2. Alternatively if you print daily? Try leaving your printer power on... Some do alignments every time you power up... so dont switch off (they use very little power in standby.)

3. When exchanging inks like HP immediately switch off printer which cancels the print test. Then just switch on again.

4. Reinserting your printed sheets each time will save paper if not ink.

Good Luck!

My printer keeps printing the test page every time it's switched on


Unplug the printer and leave it for three minutes and then plug it back in. This will reboot it and it may cure the problem.

Won't print black


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Test page


Try shutting down your PC and printer. Next,unplug PC from wall outlet. Next, unplug printer USB cable from the PC, then unplug the USB cable from the printer. Unplug the printer from the wall outlet. Wait 30 seconds. Next, plug PC back into outlet, turn it on, and wait until it has completely initialized and is ready to use. Next, plug in the USB cable from the printer to the PC, and turn on the printer. Windows should automatically detect the printer, and will proceed to install it. After the PC finishes the install, test the printer in all modes, including self-cleaning, to see if the problem is eliminated.

Take the test page ( also called : alighnment page ) that always prints when you switch on the printer and place it face down in the scanner.

Then press the scan button on the printer itself.
(this is the button at the bottom of all the buttons on the printer/scanner.)

Make sure that the printer scans the test page.
( sometimes you press the butoon and it doesn't scan )
( it makes a scanning noise when scanning succesfully )


Then it will stop printing the test page ( alignment page ) ever again.

This is a really stupid product feature on HP's part to waste ink and force people to buy more cartriges.
