I am not using the PC with the laser connected at present as i am on a laptop and away from home. i have had this experience and found it to be an option that can be set when printing booklets and some documents.

A blank page can follow as a backing sheet to a document. Check the properties by right clicking on the printer icon and checking all the tabs to untick this

SOURCE: Printer sends out extra page everytime I print

either your paper size settings need to be adjusted in the software, or your setup has included a seperator page.

SOURCE: try to print mapquest directions and sends blank sheet out

Internet printing can be tricky because everything is in HTML which is not designed for printing but for clicking. So there are links and features but when you try to print it can be blank or half pages. Is there a button on the site that says printable view or print these directions or something similar? If you click on that it should allow you to print the page as you see it on your screen.

Check your print settings, it is possible that you enable page seporator in the settings.

You need to replace the separation pad. This printer is made by Lexmark, so parts are available through many vendors. The part number for the pad is 56P0691. You can google the part number to find a vendor closest to you for the best shipping charges. It is relatively easy to replace. Good luck.

When i print i always get an extra blank sheet that comes out


hi,
The blank sheet is actually the page separator which is used when a lot of people prints to the same printer. So that everyone can differentiate their printouts. Use can disable the 'Page separator' option from your printer settings through your PC.

After turning on printer, prints initial "blank" sheet


You can fix this by turning off bidirectional support:

- Right click your printer, select properties
- go to the ports tab, uncheck Enable bidirectional support.

Your printer has to be turned on before printing.

That fixed the extra page printing S1M problem for me.
