How old is the printer? And when was the last time you changed the ink cartridges?

If an injet printer is not used very often, the ink can dry up.
The printer thinks it has ink, and will go through the motions, but nothing comes out.

Printing blank pages


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Trying to copy and nothing printing. Ink levels are good, paper is coming out


Perform "clean print heads" in printer properties select printing preferences,service then click clean nozzles, perform twice or thrice then do the nozzle test, if print heads are recovered your will be in safe, other wise***Two print heads are in this printer each print head leads two colors, left print head leads black & yellow and other one leads cyan & magenta. You need to replace the print heads based on the color which missed.

The printer pulls the paper through and sounds like it is printing but nothing on the paper. Have tried the clean, deep clean, nozzle clean, print head alignment but nothing works.


Two possible solutions:
1) remove ink crg from the head, remove head and soake the nozzles ( small round holes ) in water few times and put it on absorbing cloth for a while to dry out.
Put it back in and do the cleaning few times.
2) replace the print head and purge unit.What isnt worthed.

Handles paper fine but nothing prints. Carriage moves normally as though printing. No ink on paper. Cartridges are partially full.


It sounds as if your print heads are clogged. First try performing a deep cleaning from the Service menu. If this fails to clear your problem you can try to manually clean the heads but you may want to use Q-Tip's and Alcohol to clean the cartidge print head before you go to that expense.

My epson stylus c84 printer does not print


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. The printer won't operate properly if it's tilted. Place it on a stable and flat surface. Please do not leave your printer turned on when not in use to avoid print heads being clogged. In the instant case the ink cartridges can also leak into the printer. If the print heads are clogged then run the head cleaning and alignment utility. The print head nozzles may also need cleaning.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Canon MP360 not printing


You probably need a new purge assembly, it draws some ink to both clean and prime the printhead. When it stops working you won't get any ink to the paper.

Epson RX650 with a G5 Mac. Printing beautifully,now pgs are blank


It definately sounds like blocked print heads, try head cleaning 4 or 5 times, leave overnight and try another 4 or 5 times the next day. This usually works, if not you will need to try something a little bit stronger. Try this link:

Blocked print heads are more far more common if you are using non-genuine Epson inks. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.
