It sounds very much like your print heads are blocked. If you have not tried already then run your maintenance program or right click on your printer item in the control panel and select the properties option. Then select maintenance.

Prints blank page


Have you checked the print que
Printer problems can be a real hassle.
From time to time, due to document layout or settings on your computer, in your software of choice, or even on your printer, a blank page may get "printed" with the rest of your document.
Fortunately, this issue is a simple one to troubleshoot.
Click "Print Preview" when you are finished with your document and ready to print.
Observe your document.
If you see an extra, blank page, you have created a second page.
To delete the second page, close Print Preview, go back into the document and eliminate any blank lines in your documents that you may not need.
You may also find an inadvertent page break at the end of your document.
Place your cursor on its symbol and delete it.
Locate the symbol by clicking on the Show Formatting paragraph icon in the toolbar.


Circumvent this "ghost page" if you do not see a second (or additional) blank page in Print Preview.

Specify the number of pages you wish to print, within the Print dialogue box.
This is typically done by selecting the "Print From" option, then entering the page numbers desired.
If your document happens to be ten pages (without, of course, that final blank page), then enter in the "Print From" field the numbers "1-10".
This will print only pages 1 through 10, without an eleventh (blank) page.

From the file > print dropdown menu only prints first page of multi-page document - will print all pages if using the printer icon in hotmail


Check in the file print option that ALL is selected instead of pages. If yes, delete printer from printer folder in control panel, unplug printer, replug printer, reinstall software. It will work fine.

Printer has started spitting out one clean page for every page that is being printed. That is, if I have a two-page document to be printed, it spits out four pages, two pages without anything on them, and...


Go to START, Printer & Faxes, right click your printer and select properties. Under the advanced tab, click seperator page, delete whatever is in the box and click OK. This should stop the blank pages from printing.

Hope this helps

Photosmart 7960 prints blank documents; prints from internet ok


If it can print from the internet, it is working properly. I would disconnect the printer from the computer, uninstall the drivers and reboot twice. Reinstall the drivers and hook up the printer when instructed. Make sure that you select this as the default printer. (unless, of course, you have another as default)

Normal 0 Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
