Pulls paper through, but doesn't actually print anything on the paper

Hi there, I would simply pull the ink cartridges out completely and then put them back in. It should act as if you are putting in new cartridges and go through the install process again. I hope this works for you!

Paper comes out black when printing and copying.


A. The drum is not being charged. The charger corona wire is probably broken or not making good electrical contact. The charger corona wire may be part of the toner cartridge. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the toner cartridge. If that doesn’t work, try another toner cartridge.

I recently changed cartridges and now the paper always jams


If you put in a generic or refilled cartridge, it may not be turning well. Many generics are overfilled and actually cause damage to the printer. With the toner and drum out, check inside for any scraps and turn over the drum unit and check for scraps under the silver bar on the bottom.

Acts like its printing but no ink on paper


Using HP Director, you should be able to check estimated ink levels by selecting Settings -> Print Settings -> Printer Toolbox and then clicking on the Estimated Ink Levels tab.

If the ink levels appear to be sufficient, on the printer control panel press Setup, 1, 4. This will generate a self-test report. If there is streaking of any of the 4 bars at the bottom of the page, the affected cartridge may need to be cleaned. If any of the bars are missing, the cartridge needs to be replaced.

To clean the cartridges, press Setup, 5, 1. This will print a page of patterns.

Pixma MP780 Printer, not printing

No color printing with lexmark x4270


How may times did you use the printer to print befor this happened? If you used it a lot then you may need to buy more ink. My printer showed full ink and it turned out that they were empty.
