Hi, I'm not clear as to if you have been using this printer before or it's a new installation.
If you have been using it before, Check to see if you have it chosen as the default printer and that it is selected to print in the printer display that come up on your screen immediately before printing..
If that does not work, locate the install disk adn reinstall the printer. If it is your only printer now, set it to default. Otherwise the previous printer which is not connected to the computer will get the command to print. Of course, nothing will happen.
That should handle it. However, if it doesn't
VISUALLY check carefully to make sure your USB cables are inserted all the way in.
Particularly the one connected to the back of the printer. This one has even stumped experts.
I hope this helps you.
Have a Happy New Year,
Mark

My EPSON Stylus Photo 1400 Ink Jet Printer is printing blank photos. The ink levels are fine, it's feeding photo paper fine, it's making the same noise as it does when it prints but the photos are...


Hi,

Your problems states that photos are being blank when trying to print it.
Please try these tips.

  • Make sure your printer is selected in the Print window or in the Macintosh Page Setup and Print windows.
  • The print head nozzles may need cleaning.
  • Make sure your printer software settings are set for the paper size you're using.

Plus,i also wanted to know if you can print ordinary documents or print a test page.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Reading no paper paper tray is full


Instructions
  1. Check the display for an error message. If the display reads "Clearing paper from printer," the engine has detected a jam and is attempting to eject the jammed pages automatically. These pages will often be blank.
  2. Check the display for "Performing PRINT/STOP TEST" or "Performing SERVICE TEST." Either of these messages indicates that the printer is going through a test procedure that may eject blank pages.
  3. Reduce the amount of paper in the input tray if the printer is feeding multiple blank sheets at a time. The printer will pull extra pages through if the input tray is overfilled.
  4. Replace the paper in the input tray with the correct size if needed. If the 4600 printer detects the paper as an incorrect size for the print job, it may eject the paper without printing anything on it.
  5. Replace the ink cartridges if certain colors are blank on the page. Replace the black cartridge if printing a black text document that is coming out blank. The printer may attempt to print even if the ink level is low or empty, but will unable to print anything on the page, causing it to come out blank.
  6. Remove the sealing tape from newly installed cartridges. The tape covers the print heads and should be removed before installing the cartridges. If the tape is left on, it will prevent ink from getting on the pages as they print.
  7. Press the "Check mark" button on the control panel to enter the printer menu. Run a diagnostic so the printer can attempt to determine the cause of the blank pages printing. Press the up or down arrow to select "Diagnostics." Press the "Check mark" button. Press the "Down" arrow to highlight "PQ Troubleshooting." Press the "Check mark" button. The printer runs a diagnostic and returns to a ready state when done.

Printouts come out blank every time. Same happens when you try to photocopy. Ink levels seem ok. Some probelms experienced with paper feed.


Sorry for underestimating your knowledge, but did you remove the protective tape from the printheads?
If the communication between printheads and the printer is lost, the printer will not just print out a blank page, but will ask for new cartridges. That's why the printer have to be OK and the printheads should be faulty.
The printheads actually does not have level sensors in them. The printer calculates the levels according to the print history and may vastly deviate. They may be empty. But they may just be clogged by dry ink. Try to clean the nozzles using the procedure in Printer Preferencies, Maintenance or Troubleshooting tab. If fails, try to soak them in hot water for 15 minutes and dry them with a napkin.
If everything else fails, install new cartridges.

If ink is ok , then you may need to reinstall printer drivers.

Unplug printer USB.
Go to control panel>>Installed printers and delete existing printer installation.
Reinstall printer driver software using printer CD.

Printer will not print black ink


Hi please try these steps:::

Right-click the printer icon, and then select 'Properties'.
2. Click the 'Maintenance' tab, and then click 'Deep Cleaning'.

3. Select 'All Colors', 'Black' or 'Color' for the print head to be cleaned.

4. Read the message displayed, and then click 'OK'. The power lamp blinks and print head deep cleaning starts. (Do not perform any other operations until print head deep cleaning is complete. Print head deep cleaning takes about 1 minute.)

IF ABOVE STEPS DOESN'T WORK TRY THESE STEPS BELOW

Check ink tank vent hole The ink tank requires air to flow through it so ink can move from the reservoir to the print heads.

  1. Confirm there is no orange tape across the top of the ink tank

  2. If the orange tape is as shown in Figure (1), it is properly removed.

    ink_tank_tape.jpg

    *BCI-3's shown in this example.

  3. If the orange tape is as shown in Figure (2), remove the remaining tape to the level shown in Figure (1).

  4. Make sure each ink tank is snapped into the printer.

    IF THESE STEPS DIDNOT WORK THEN YOUR PRINTER NEEDS REPAIR(You might need to change the printer head.)
