Any chance the ink cartridges, which are separate from the printheads, are empty or dried out? If the printheads were exposed to air for more than a few hours without an ink cartridge on top of them, they may have dried out. HPs are especially bad for this, and BTW, never use a non-HP cartridge in a D145 - the inks aren't compatible and clog up everything (at least it happened to me..) You could also replace all the printheads and cartridges, but that'll cost you more than a new printer.

How do I fix my printer it prints blank sheets it acts like its printing but the paper is still blank I did nozzle and print head checks nothing still blank


I hate to state the obvious, but how long has it been since you've changed the ink cartridges on the printer. If you have done both the nozzle cleaning and print head alignment and nothing appeared on the paper, I don't know what else it could be.
This following suggestion is very rare - if you recently replaced the cartridges and your printer hasn't printed since then, it is possible that you installed them incorrectly; OR perhaps you left the head protector tape on the cartridge. But then it wouldn't "see" the cartridge.
In the "rare" situations, you should try to remove and replace the cartridges to assure that they are properly installed.

Why won't my printer print black with all new cartridges?


Remove all inks, then the printhead & sit the printhead on a soft cloth soaked in warm water - let it sit for a few minutes then reinstall, close lid then make the machine ask for the inks once the inks have then been installed it should prime the machine. If this does not work try it again & if that fails then your printhead probably needs to be replaced.

The printer sounds like it is printing but the page comes out blank.


Problem Blank Pages; Blank Print Out Solution


Symptom


When printing from the S or Pro Series printers, you may encounter blank pages being printed.


Solution


To rectify this issue, please follow the troubleshooting steps below:


Action Image 1

While on the main screen of the printer, open the cover.

  • If the printhead stays to the left, go to Step 2.
  • If the printhead comes to the center, do not continue troubleshooting because the printhead is faulty.
ss_mainscreen.jpg 2

Place the printer into "Replace Printhead" mode using the Maintenance menu. To access this mode, follow the steps below:

  • Touch Screen Printers:
    • Tap on the Ink Levels icon.
    • Tap on More Options.
    • Select Replace Printhead.
  • LCD Screen Printers:
    • Press the Setup button and use the arrow buttons.
    • Select Maintenance.
    • Select Replace Printhead.
... 3

Open the covers and look into the printer on the left-hand side where the cartridges are inserted into the printhead - aWICKING PAD is located there.

  • If this PAD is BLACK (as seen in the right-hand image; click it for larger view), then the printer has successfully gotten ink into and through the printhead.
  • If the PAD is WHITE, then the printer has not been able to make the ink flow through the printhead. Go to Step4.
pad.jpg 4 Seat the printhead again. Unpower the printer and connect it again. Open the cover and reseat all four tanks. Press firmly on the rear of each tank and make sure all four snap in tight. ... 5

Insert plain paper and run Deep Clean.

  • Touch Screen Printers:
    • Tap on the Ink Levels icon.
    • Tap on More Options.
    • Select Deep Clean Printhead.
  • LCD Screen Printers:
    • Press the Setup button.
    • Select Maintenance.
    • Select Deep Clean Printhead.

If you cannot get all four inks to lay clean, identify which one, if any of them, is failing.

  • If there is just some ink on the page - run the Deep Clean again.
  • If there is no ink at all, then the printhead is faulty.

Hi. Printer isn't working, paper comes out blank.


Most likely the printhead is clogged. Another possibility is that the cleaning station does not work. 3 ways the printhead can clog,

1. Using Generic Ink
2. Not using the printer for a long time
3. Print a large print job after the ink indicator says the inks are running low.

You are better off replacing the unit than trying to get the printhead unclogged. Cost is usually around $40 and is only a 65% chance it willwork.

thanks

My Paper comes White from the Printer.I replaced Ink-Cartridge tow times with new and original Canon Cartridges.Thee ist no Errors in Display


You either need a new printhead or you need a new purge assembly. When the purge assembly doesn't clean or prime the printhead properly you get blank prints, on the older machines you could do a clean cycle with the ink removed and see if the ink is cleaned from the filter in the printhead which means you need a printhead.

Lots of paper, but practically no printing


Are you using a canon? It may be that the printhead is clogged up. Try "clean printhead" option supplied with the driver. Canon printers have separate ink and printhead unlike other brands. You may also replace the printhead if cleaning doesn't help.

Wont print power is on can hear jets runing


What you hear is the carriage going back and forth as well as the paper being transported through the path. The actual printheads are silent. More than likely, you have a bad or empty cartridge. Try using the printer's utility to clean the printheads - you may have to this a few times. If that doesn't work, replace the printhead.

CANON I550 PRINTER


Your printer works with the BCI-3E (bk/cyan/magenta/yellow) cartridges, that are in fact just ink-tanks, the printhead being apart of the tanks, so if the cartridges are not empty, it cannot be because of them. It doesnt matter if you replace the cartridges, the problem is in the printhead. Curious thing is that usually it starts with pour quality printing if printhead starts to clogg, not with blank pages...

If the problem occured just a while ago, you should consider that NOT PRINTING a long time (30 days) with a printer can lead to ink drying out in the printhead, clogging the nozzles. But usually not entire, so that something is still printed, paper does not come out white.

Anyway, now it comes:
If you have some tehnical skills, you can remove the cartridge and desassembly the printhead (where the cartridge are in) and do the following:

First of all, look if there is somne ink lines on the nozzle part of the printhead. If you put a paper-tissue on the nozzles and it let on paper the 4 lines (black and colors) than maybe it's useless to clean the printhead, ink is comming trough and dont know why paper comes out blank.
If there are dry:
Put a paper-tissue on a small plate (like a coffee-cup plate), then put some boiling water on it, just 2~3mm of water over the tissue.
Put the printhead with the nozzles part downside on the tissue, in the hot water.
Let it stay there in the water 30 min.
Put the cartridges back on the printhead (without installing it in the printer), rap it in an other clean tissue, than shake it strongy as if you want to force ink to get out trough the nozzles. Then clean gentle the nozzle part of the printhead on some sheets of tissue.
Get the cartridges again out of the printhead, install it in the printer, then install the cartridges again and run a few cleaning processes from the printers maintenance software.

It should work. If you dont have the tehnicall skills needed, Canon gotcha, or you can visit a local specialist to make all this for you, they usualy have better equipmens, as ultrasonic cleaners and special solvents that makes all this easyer.

If after that still dont work, it's bad, it's not from cartridges or printhead, it's something else... Dont know what, from a distance.

Rate the solution if it helped you!

Thx.
