SOURCE: My printing displays wrong ink levels and prints blank pages

If your cartridge is new (or full) and you know that not just from ink levels display, then you did not used the printer for a while (at least a month) and the nozzles of the cartridge are clogged. If u used the cartridghe 4 or 5 moths ago, then the whole cartridge is dryed out, so get out and get yourself a new cartridge.

If it's just a month, then you should 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 cartridge with the nozzles part downside on the tissue, in the hot water.
Let it stay there in the water 30 min.
Put the cartridge 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 cartridge on some sheets of tissue.
Install the cartridges it in the printer and run a few cleaning processes from the printers maintenance software.

If the cartridge is new and just installed in the printer, and you have the inklevels but it does not print, then get it out of the printer and back to the store, they should replace it for you. I hope you removed the protective plastic stripe that covers the nozzles before installing the cartridge?...

OK, let ne know please how things evolve.

Hope it helped you, rate the solution.

Almoust forgot: ink levels are displayed by Lexmark inkprinters by estimating the ink consumed trough you printing process, it has no sensors in the cartridge. It's just kind of a counter, you can evan set an empty cartridge to be seen as a full one.

SOURCE: printer won't print. . . .ink cartridges full but

First, remove the ink cartridges and make sure you removed the protective plastic cover. DO NOT force anything. If it doesn't just slip right off, its not the cover. If it still doesn't work, uninstall, and reinstall the drivers for the printer.

Printer is printing blank pages ink levels read full.


Make sure that what you are printing from the PC is black. This sounds so trite, but if for some reason you have set the font to white you may be able to see what you have written on the screen - but it won't print. Another possibility is that somehow the print in the document has been set to 'hidden'. That doesn't help either.

Failing that you may have to reinstall the printer. Use the printer disc to do this.

Pixma MP780 Printer, not printing


sometimes those measures of ink levels are not very accurate. actually they're usually rather far off... try a new cartridge Usually the easiest solution.
