Check to make sure the ink carts are actually expelling ink. To do so take them out, get a piece of paper towel and press the ink cart onto the bottom of the cart ( where the ink comes out ). If the ink comes out and you see the colors, Open the Lexmark Solution Center, click on Maintance, and click on "clean horizontal streak". If that does not work then chances are they are clogged and you will need to replace the printer. You can do so through Lexmark Tech Support if the printer is within the 1 year Warranty

My Kodak printer is only printing out blank pages. I just put in new ink cartridges today, but nothing is printed on the pages.


the cartridges come with tape over the print heads to keep them from leaking during shipping.

Doing the "clean printhead/cartridge nozzles" multiple times would have cleared clogged nozzles. You can also try to manually wipe the cartridge nozzles with a slightly moistened soft cloth. If that still won't help, try to replace your cartridge with a different known working cartridge to determine if your other cartridge is faulty.

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.

Printer will not print in black


I will try to help but when you installed the printer and the cartridges, did you remove meaning completely remove the tape on the printed circuit and nozzles of the cartridge? Did you remove all the tapes on the machine? It's not likely that the cartridge is defective when it is that new. Hope this helps.

I keep getting cartridge error or it prints a blank page. There is no tape on the cartridge and they are installed properly. It prints sometimes but not all the time Printer keeps saying cartridge error


This has been just happening with me aswell - I just changed the colour cartridge with the black cartridge ran out but i kept it in as it told me to place one in. Trying to print out but black ink wont come - just blank pages - surely the colour cartridge can make black? However, if you have the colour cartridge and are on microsoft word or similar, change the colour of the writing to dark navy and it will print out documents.

Printing blank pages


I am working on the same problem. While you will not like the
answer here it is for the canon mf6530. What is causing it
is the shutter over the laser is failing to open. There for
it blocks all exposer. A temperary fix is to carefully lift the
shutter and tape it open using black electrical tape. Then
try a few prints you should have an image if this is your
issue as it is mine. I do not recommending running it in
this condition very long. When I find the final answer I
will attempt to post it.
