Printing blanks Hi, I'm so glad this website exists, I have replaced the black ink in the printer, the printer is responding and seemingly printing like normal, but it just prints blank pages like it's out of ink, it's so annoying! Please help!

    My Lexmark X1270 is only printing blanks. It acts like it wants to print but no ink comes out. The plastic is off of the cartridges, I have restarted completely multiple times, reinstalled the driver, I have placed the ink on damp towels (which has gotten it to print very lightly) and the ink level indicator says both my color and black ink cartridges are full. Now what? Please help!

    I am having the same problem. I have tried rebooting the computer and the printer several times. Do you have a solution for me?



    Thank you for your assistance.

Usually, the thing to do is turn off the printer, shut down your PC and then reboot. Just remember this has to be a cold shutdown, meaning completely off not just hibernating or in sleep mode. You may also want to shut down and then pull the plug on the PC. This flushes away the jobs left in RAM.

In Control Panel, Display, Screen Saver, Power settings is a setting for what happens when you press your power button. Check this setting to make it power off, not Hibernate, not Standby.

All of this is meant to flush out any odd ball print jobs locked into your print queue.

Once you successfully do this, your printer should resume to normal operation..

If not, *please* let me know so we can move on to the next step in a possibly long process of troubleshooting.

Run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles, to get the black ink flowing through the ink-jets inside the print-head.

Some printers REQUIRE an "alignment" step every time you change the ink-cartridges.
It only takes a few minutes, and it prints one or two pages of paper.

This is a common problem with printers. Reinstall the driver, preferably from the Canon download website. It will have the newest drivers and have fixes for any problems which existed before. Let me know if you need more help. Thanks for using FixYa and for the generous rating.

Sounds like your black print head may be clogged. You can get a new one from Precision Roller for $60. Another fact that would confirm that your print head is clogged is if you let the printer sit for more than a few weeks without printing with it.

Still printing blanks


Hi,

I can get you through this but I need you to close out the other two posts you made to me.

Go to the page below and rate that problem as FIXED now.
http://www.fixya.com/support/t849989-printing_blanks

Then, go to the other page below and rate that FIXED too.
http://www.fixya.com/support/t854672-still_printing_blanks

Once you have closed those out and rated them as FIXED to finish that stuff out I can take you to the next level.

OK?

Let me know when you've done this by using the comment box below, not the Ask Me button this time.

Thanks again,
Worldvet
