Printer not printing at all

Incoming faxes and copy function deliver blank pages. Cartridge is good. Print head moves back and forth. No error messages. Any thoughts?

    Both the color and black catridges of my officejet 4215 all-in-one were finished and I bought the black just a couple of days ago and the printer was working perfectly until last night when it started ejecting black pages in the middle of a document I was printing. I tried the copier and that too now ejcts blank pages also. Can someone help? I use windows vista.

Though there was no message to indicate toner issues, I changed the cartridge anyway. That must have been the problem. It works now. The old cartridge was 3 years old and, though barely used, may have outlived its quality. Thanks for writing back.

Fax will not print: I connected the fax machine and plugged it in. It sends faxes OK. When a fax is sent to it, nothing comes out. The sending fax doesn't receive an error message, seems like all went...


Does the machine print anything? such as a directory or print when making a copy? I rather suspect it does not. When an incoming fax is recvd does the paper get pulled in and come out blank? If so your problem is with printing (or lack of it). Perform head cleaning. Also make sure the black cartridge still does not have its deal stuck on it. Post again if you still have problem.

My printer is printing blank pages. The test print prints all the colors though. But when I print a document all I get is a blank page. I just installed a new color cartridge.


Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached. To reattach the cartridge, turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head. Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report. Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

When i recive fax or when i print it just it prints empty page


If the fax is acting like it is printing (print head moving back and fourth) then it sounds like the ink cartridge is clogged. Remove the cartridge and clean with cotton swab and rubbing alcohol. If this helps a little or not at all replace the ink cartridge. If it still prints blank, the print head could be the problem (this is where the ink cartridge goes). At this point it would be cheaper to replace the fax.

No print on copies or faxes


This is a clogged print head. This happens if the printer has been off for a long time or if the cartridge was removed and the unit left empty for any time.
Take out the cartridge and press the print part on a piece of paper. Any black lines? If not, you will need a new cartridge. Wiping the print head gently with a Q-tip moistened with PURE alcohol (99%) may restore printing.

Printer prints blank pages


Ok, first off, system specs:
- Windows XP Home SP2
- HP PSC 1*** (not sure) Inkjet Printer

In MS Office 2003, when you print a document, the printer spits out a blank page. When I did a test page in the printer settings, the test page printed perfectly fine. And pretty much any other non MS based program prints (tested: AOL EMails/webpages [IE6]).

I reinstalled the drivers and checked for updates...all good. Restarted the PC with printer unplugged and vice-versa.

Nothing there


Did you try cleaning the print cartridge nozzles.

Press Function once and up arrow 2 times
Press the right arrow once and the up arrow once
Press the right arrow once
Press Start/Memory button
It will print a test parttern page

Once you insert the new cartridge did the machine recognize the new cartridge? You had to press 1 for new

When 1 is selected you will get a prompt New Cart: OK?
OK press start.

If you selected NEW the display will show the alternating messages at right. Align Cartridge----1 Print 2 Set

Press 1 to print an alignment page

Hopefully, it will printed. Let me know one way or the other.

Print faded after replacing black cartridge Brother 240C


The print heads don't appreciate being out of ink so the Brother printer has sensors to prevent that but the tape defeated that prevention. Maybe more cleanings or maybe a cartridge with printhead cleaning solution will help. Otherwise, I fear a new printer.
