Will not print from the computer to the printer. I brought up a picture and pushed print and it just pulled in the paper and it was blank


* Check your warranty. Call for support.

*** Following is for information only.***
* Brand, Model for specific solutions.
* Computers and printers perform many functions.
* Just printing B/W documents are a thing of the past.
* Just printing a document requires the user to identify:
* Size of paper to be used. A4, 5x8", 8x10, banner, etc.
* Quality of paper; Plain, semi gloss, bright white, photo, etc.
* Orientation of document or picture; Portrait or Landscape
* Multiple copy.
* Size of document; Standard paper, Multiple (expanded) poster, Shrink (Reduced to fit page), Reduced to wallet size., etc.
* Color shift (effects) Print in grey scale.
* Print in reverse for T-shirt transfers or window posters.
* many more options depending on the printer. (some print on cakes)
* The point is that these or most of these have to be set up by the user EACH TIME you need to print something. The printer may be set for poster sized pictures but you just want to print a simple letter. This poster setting (depending on how many sheets per poster) may be the upper right corner of the document is blank. It did print but it started in an area that does not have anything to print.
* Another issue with printing (more common) is how many sheets are you printing. Depending on your CPU speed, each page needs to be processed (rendered) to be accepted by the printer. My Lenovo ideapad takes 2-3 mins to render 1 page. Printing 15 pages (or copy) takes over 30 mins to render before it prints the first sheet.
* Which order of print? Was the last page printed first? Is the last page blank?
* Wireless printers also take time to transfer data to the print buffer. This is also depends on your router or WiFi speed. (or network)
* To check your setup use the "Preview" option. Not how the document is pictured on the printed sheet. Pre-view saves on wasting paper on miss prints due to incorrect settings.
* Check your printer manual on setting up for a specific paper, document size, quality, and other issues.
Aloha, ukeboy57

PS, the issue of lost connection (WiFi) will stop the print. Eject the last page (partial print). Some machines will eject page only after a restart or reset.
* Perform a "Test Print" using the printer test mode (to check if the printer is out of ink.)
* Perform a print of a single page letter from the computer to test the connection to printer.
* Use the computer to check the printer app. look at the ink levels. Perform a system check of the printer operations.

Do pixma Mp610 support duplex printing


The MP610 does support duplex printing.

Duplex Printing
duplex.gif
The duplex printing function allows you to print data on both sides of a sheet of paper.
The procedure for performing duplex printing is as follows:
Performing automatic duplex printing
You can perform the duplex printing without having to turn over the paper.
1. Open the printer driver setup window, check the Duplex Printing check box, and confirm that Automatic is checked.
duplex1.gif
2. Select Normal-size Printing (or Fit-to-Page Printing, Scaled Printing or Page Layout Printing) from the Page Layout list.
3. When printing a document that has small margins, click Print Area Setup... and set the print area.
When you perform duplex printing, the print area of the document becomes slightly narrower than usual and the document may not fit on one page.
duplex2.gif
sub.gifTo print without reducing the page:
Select Use normal-size printing.
sub.gifTo reduce the page slightly during printing:
Select Use reduced printing.
4. Specify Staple Side.
The printer analyzes the Orientation and Page Layout settings, and automatically selects the best staple position. Check the Staple Side setting. If you want to change the setting, select another value from the list.
5. If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the Margin width.
6. Click OK.
Duplex printing will be started.

Performing duplex printing manually
You can perform the duplex printing manually.
1. Check the Duplex Printing check box and uncheck the Automatic check box on the Page Setup tab.
duplex3.gif
2. Select Normal-size Printing (or Fit-to-Page Printing, Scaled Printing or Page Layout Printing) from the Page Layout list.
3. Specify Staple Side.
The printer analyzes the Orientation and Page Layout settings, and automatically selects the best staple position. Check the Staple Side setting. If you want to change the setting, select another value from the list.
4. If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the Margin width.
5. Click OK.
sub.gifIf a media type other than Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:
When you execute print, the document will be printed on one side of a sheet of paper. When printing is complete, reload paper according to the displayed message and then click OK. The document will be printed on the opposite side.
sub.gifIf Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:
When you execute print, the document will be printed front and back alternately for one sheet at a time. Load the paper according to the displayed messages.
caution.gif Note sub.gifDuplex Printing is unavailable when:
- A media type other than Plain Paper, Photo Paper Plus Double Sided or Hagaki is selected from the Media Type list.
- Poster Printing is selected from the Page Layout list.
sub.gifWhen Booklet Printing is selected from the Page Layout list, Duplex Printing and Staple Side appear grayed out and are unavailable.
sub.gifAfter printing the front page, there is an ink drying wait time before starting to print the back page (Operation stops temporarily). Do not touch the paper during the time. You can change the Ink Drying Wait Time at Custom Settings on the Maintenance tab of the printer driver.
sub.gifWhen you perform the automatic duplex printing for Hagaki, print an address first and then print your message.
refer.gif Tip sub.gifIf you select Photo Paper Plus Double Sided for Media Type on the Main tab, the Duplex Printing check box on the Page Setup tab is not checked automatically. To perform duplex printing, check the Duplex Printing check box.
sub.gifIf the Media Type dialog box appears when performing borderless printing during duplex printing, select Plain Paper or Photo Paper Plus Double Sided.
sub.gifWhen performing the automatic duplex printing, do not use any plain paper smaller than A5. Also, do not select any type of paper other than Plain Paper, Photo Paper Plus Double Sided or Hagaki at Media Type.
sub.gifPhoto Paper Plus Double Sided is highly recommended for printing photographs on both sides of a page.
sub.gifIf the back side of the paper becomes smudged during duplex printing, perform Bottom Plate Cleaning in the Maintenance tab.

Prints 3 pages for every one


You may have an extra page in your word processing program.
Try using the print preview option to see if you have for eg 2 pages in what you think is a 1 page document.

Also, it might be a glitch in your printer software driver, so uninstall the driver and re-install.
