I have a lexmark pro 901 and it suddenly just started to print blank pages. all the ink cartridges were replaced and is full, but is still just print blank pages. what is wrong?


It's because of your page set up.

If you have very small margins this will cause it.

Also Headers and Footers even though you haven't put anything in them
the printer and the word processor will allow for them.

Set up your page with a [or the metric equivalent] margin all round.

Set the Header and Footer margins to zero or remove the ticks.

When you do a printer set up remover the ticks [or however it's shown]
so the Headers and Footers are not included in the printing. In Case You Still face Problem and Need Online Assistance Then Please Follow Us For On : Lexmark Printer Support

I want to remove the date at the bottom of the page when it prints


Information in Headers and Footers come from whatever program you are printing from, not from the printer. Go into whatever program you print from and make the changes.

MY HP PSC 1315V WILL PRINT THE HEADER AND FOOTER OF PAGES I TRY TO PRINT FROM THE INTERNET BUT THE REST OF THE PAGE CONTENT IS ALMOST INVISIBLE


Most web pages are in color. Your web browser adds black headers and footers. I would suggest printing a test page to make sure the unit produces color correctly. If not, you can force the output to be in black and white, which should be legibile.

On Windows, go to Start>Settings>Printers and Faxes, then right-click on your printer and open the Properties page. There should be a "Print Test Page" button at the bottom.

Good luck and please rate me, thanks.
