Make sure:

  • The ink cartridges are not empty.
  • If you have put in new ones make sure you have removed covers from both connections and nozzles.
Do a head cleaning on the printer:
  1. Push "Ink"
  2. Select "Cleaning" by pushing up and down arrows.
  3. Push "Menu/Set"
  4. Select "Black","Color" or "All"
  5. Push "Menu/Set" to start the cleaning.

Can do the procedure up to 5 times.

As a last resort you could take out the cartridges and rinse the nozzles under the tap water for a few seconds, wipe the cartridges dry and put them back in the printer.

If none of the steps help contact Brother for further assistance.

This machine needs a new fuser. That is a common issue.

SOURCE: Prints blank pages when I try printing a document

Hi


Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this I put down here. But after you don 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 it got to be the heads blockage
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.

Replace toner and drum and when i make copies they come out blank


This comes from the manual for your device:
A blank sheet is ejected.
You placed the document facing the wrong way when using the copier.
The other party placed the document in their fax machine the wrong way. Check with the other party (KX-MB781 only).

Try putting a page in and seeing if it copies blank and then putting it in the other direction. Have you had the same issue with printing?

If everything comes out blank it is the fuser or heating element.

When printing or copying, I just get blank sheets


You may need to clean the printer heads. First try going to your printers properties and you should have an option via troubleshooting to clean, if this does not help, look inside the printer depending on the model, near the cartridge, you'll find where the ink comes out. Take a damp qtip and wipe them good. They are most likely clogged. I cleaned mine with alcohol but I'm also a risk taker :). Hope this helps!

Canon MF5750--copies come out with black streak (smear) from top to bottom of pages when printing. Changed cartridge and cleaned window.


run twenty blank pages through the printer by printing just a period (.) on a document. Otherwise the sheet should be blank. This is a way of cleaning the toner or inkjet ink from the printer. By the time the twentyth page is printed, the page should be clean. If not, you may have to get the printer serviced. The canon service number is 1-800-423-2366 option 1.

Big Black not printing


Sounds to me your print head is plugged up. This is not usual though because the majority of people use black ink much more. So, in your printer utility, do a deep cleaning. If that does not work, there is a thing called a purge unit in it. This is a usual way of draining waste ink to a pad that soaks it up. if the hose, or other parts are clogged, it backs the ink up and causes the print head to clog. If this is the start of it, do not waste your ink cleaning, and try not to let it sit too long. Contact canon, and let them kno what you think it is.
