Have tried printing from computer and tried printing test page from printer. both times the pages come out blank.. how do I check the toner levels in printer. thank you


The draw back of inkjet technology printers are, if it is not using quite long period of time,cartridge nozzles will dry up, result printer will act just like a printing some thing but nothing will come on paper(blank page) even ink levels are showing full.
Try to recover the both cartridges through 'clean print cartridge' process from the system,if not better consult cartridge re-filler to clean the nozzles..Replace new cartridges if above said methods are not worked out.

When I try to print the page comes out blank. My ink levels are at more than half


Hi, 1st check whether your ink cartridge includes ink or not.( this can b checked within the software came out with your printer; the ink level) and some times not all softwares have these feature. Another way to check is print a test paper and check the the visibility of the font or pic if exist. 2nd try to update printer''s drivers to the latest. Or re-install software+drivers again. 3rd May be you bought the cartridge along time ago or recently but you didnt print frequently or use it ; to avoid letting the ink dries , after all these trials you get new one, and I have another solution which I do not recommend and you can try on your own responsibility, ( uninstall the ink cartridge and put half of the cartridge(don't put it all) 10 minutes in hot water ,of course not boiling one, this may let the dried ink to melt again and you would be lucky if it worked. Again you should try to buy a new ones if the 3 ways I mentioned didn't work with you. And if they are expensive, I recommend buying a new printer because their price seems close to a new ink cartridge(black+color) in some countries. good Luck.

The black ink on my Brother DCP-130C won't print and it's a brand new ink cartridge. I thought it was a defected cartridge so I bought another one, same thing. The other 3 colours print ok though....


I have the same problem. Everything on the printer is working just fine. It'll do a test page just fine, so everything's working right. The %$^ thing just won't print. It makes noise like it's printing when you give it a print job, but it spits out blank pages.

Black Horizontal lines


hi!



Horizontal white lines usually indicate the ink cartridge is running out of ink or has some clogged ink nozzles. Try the following steps:
  1. Some of the ink cartridge ink nozzles may be clogged with dry ink. Use the ink cartridge cleaning service to try to clear them. Follow the steps below:
    1. check if there is plain white paper in the Input tray.
    2. Press Setup .
    3. Press < or >to select Tools and then press OK .
    4. Press < or > to select Clean Print Cartridge and then press OK . The unit prints a test page.
    5. Examine the test page. If the print quality of the page is good, stop here. If the print quality appears to be getting better, run the Clean Print Cartridge utility again
  2. If the self test appears better, Increase the copy quality setting (Normal or Best) and try copying again. If the quality is still poor, continue to the next step.
  3. If the quality is still poor, one or more of the cartridges may be low on ink or empty. Follow the steps below to check the ink levels.
    1. Open HP Solution Center .
    2. Click Settings .
    3. Click Print Settings .
    4. Click Printer Toolbox .
    5. Click the Estimated Ink Levels tab.
    6. Replace any ink cartridge that is low on ink.
  4. If the ink levels are not low, clean the cartridge face and electrical contacts at the back of the print carriage.
    1. Open the front of the unit to access the ink cartridges.
    2. After the ink cartridges are at the center, unplug the power cord from the back of the unit, and remove the ink cartridges. The power cord must be removed to ensure that the unit is not damaged during the cleaning process.
    3. Clean the cross-hatched area of the ink cartridge with a soft clean cloth that is slightly dampened with clean water to remove any build up. Avoid cleaning the ink cartridge nozzle plate. Cleaning this area can force foreign matter into the ink nozzles and plug them
    4. With a soft lint free cloth slightly dampened with clean water, clean the copper-colored contacts on the back of the ink cartridges.
    5. Allow the cartridges to dry before reinserting them.
    6. Close the unit, and plug the power cord back in.
    7. Print a self-test page to check the results. Follow the steps below to print a self-test page.
      1. Press Setup .
      2. Press <or > until Print Report displays and then press OK .
      3. Press < or > until Self-Test Report displays and then press OK . The self-test report prints.
    8. If the problem is not corrected by cleaning the ink cartridges, replace the ink cartridge(s).
- hope it will help to resolve you problem...

    It prints ok, but paper is blank (no ink at all)


    1. Remove the protective tape from the cartridges:
    1. With the printer power on, open the front cover of the printer. The cartridge carrier should move to the middle.
    2. Remove the cartridge(s) from the printer.
    3. Look on the underside of the cartridge(s). If there is yellow tape and/or transparent blue tape there, remove it.
    2. Clean the cartridge nozzles:
    1. Go to the Lexmark Control Program or Solution Center and run the Clean print nozzle test.
    If a black cartridge is installed, you should see black lines only.
    If the color cartridge is installed, you should see yellow, magenta (a reddish purple), and cyan (a dark sky blue) lines.
    If a photo cartridge is installed, you may see different colors.
    2. Examine the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. These diagonal lines should be solid from left to right, with no gaps.
    If there are gaps in the lines, you could run the Clean Print Nozzle page a few more times to try and clear it up or try the "wicking" procedure below to conserve ink.
    If the page is faded from left to right and the wicking procedure doesn't clear it up, your cartridge is probably out of ink.
    3. Clean ("wick") the cartridges:
    1. Remove your cartridges following the instructions in your User's Guide.
    2. Take a warm, damp paper towel and fold it so that it has about 4- to 6-ply thickness.
    3. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are touching the towel, and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds. The nozzles are where the ink comes out of the cartridge.
    4. Now drag the cartridge lightly across the paper towel in one direction only (left to right) until the bottom of the cartridge looks clean.
    5. Turn the cartridge over so that you can see the bar code sticker on the back. Note: Only perform steps 6 and 7 if the contacts look dirty or corroded.
    6. Using a clean pencil eraser, clean the contact points on the copper strip (only the little squares just below the bar code). Caution! Do not use the eraser on the nozzles that were cleaned, as this will damage the cartridge.
    7. Using a clean part of your dry paper towel, wipe the eraser dust off the contacts; ensure that they are dry, and snap the cartridge back into the printer.
    8. Make sure to install the cartridges following the instructions in your User's Guide, selecting Old Cartridge. Failure to do so could reset your ink levels as explained above.
    9. Repeat the nozzle cleaning procedure one more time. At this point the diagonal lines should be solid.
    10. If they are not and you think the cartridges should have ink in them, contact our technicians by e-mail and let them know the results of this test.
    4. Reset the ink levels:
    Lexmark printer cartridges do not have ink sensors. The levels of ink are produced by a mathematical calculation of ink drops and page counts. The printer stores this information and then writes it to the win.ini file on your computer.

    Ink levels can be reset by telling the printer you have installed a new ink cartridge or by reinstalling the printer drivers and selecting Cartridges Installed. Once ink levels have been reset, there is no way to change them except by printing.

    Accordingly, even if your computer says that your ink is full for a particular cartridge, it may be incorrect and the cartridge may need to be replaced. You may want to try a new cartridge to see if that clears up any print quality problems.
