My Gestetner copier # 3225 prints blank pages.

it sounds like you may have a part of the unit that is out of alignment. If everything isn't securely fit back into the machine, it won't image properly.
If it will neither print (if it has the option installed) NOR copy images, NOR will it print a test page from its memory, then the places I would look first would be:
1: The connector on the transfer belt which is the brown, flat thing found on the door of the machine...sometimes the connector is bent and doesn't make good contact, which prevents toner from transfering to the belt from the drum.
2:The drum unit may not be secured well to the back of the machine and the Charge Strip above it may not be in place. I can't recall immediately if it has a grid or just a wire, but the hair thick wire can break, which can cause exactly your problem, though you should be able see the wire easily with a flashlight.
Unfortunately, when the office "Mr. Fixit" tries to remove a jam and save the company an easy 100 bucks it often can cause other problems...I've worked with copiers since 2001 and I'd safely say that at least 1 in 10 routine calls revealed complications from someone unqualified who tried a little too hard to fix the unit.
But check on those two things and if it still doesn't work then let me know and I'll try to help you more. :-)
