Help! My Printer Is Printing Blank Pages | 1-855-219-8503



There are few things more frustrating than carefully putting together an important document or file and pressing print, only for the printer to send out a completely blank sheet of paper, as fresh-faced as the day it left the ream. There are a few things that could be the cause of this problem, including:


Empty ink or toner cartridges that need replacing

Ink or toner cartridges that have become dislodged from their proper place

The wrong paper size loaded in the input tray

Clogged printer head nozzles causing a build-up of blocked ink or toner

Blank pages in the document youre printing


Read on to find out how to rectify these problems quickly and get back to printing without any issues.


Empty Cartridges

We dont want to sound condescending, but have you checked the ink/toner levels in your cartridge? They may have completely depleted since you last used the printer. Check the ink/toner levels and replace when necessary.


Disconnected Cartridge

Even if your cartridge is full and ready for action, it may have become slightly dislodged and no longer in full electrical contact with the printer. The easiest way to rectify this potential problem is to simply remove and reinstall the cartridges. This may complete the electrical circuit and ensure everything runs and prints as normal.


Incorrect Paper Size

If you have accidentally (or purposefully for a previous print job) changed the in-program paper size setting without reverting back to your paper size of choice it could be confusing the printer. Go into Print Preview or the print settings and make sure the correct paper size is selected.


Clogged Nozzles

This problem is particularly likely to affect people who use their printer quite infrequently, with hardened ink potentially clogging up the nozzles. If your printer has a Print Head Nozzle Check option, select that and let the machine clear the nozzles. This should remove any blockages and help the ink to flow once again.

There are Blank Pages in the Document

If you are printing a multi-page document from an external party, there may be some blank pages included to break up sections which are impossible to delete or omit from the document. This can be hugely irritating and a waste of time. Fortunately, both Windows and Mac have developed steps to ensure your printer completely ignores blank pages and gets stuck straight into the good stuff.



Open up Printing Preferences (this is accessible in a number of different ways, depending upon the version of Windows)

Click Maintenance

In the Settings section, select Skip Blank Page

Save your settings by clicking OK



Open Finder and select System Preferences

Depending upon the version of OS, select either Print & Scan, Print & Fax or Printers &



Select Options & Supplies

Click either Driver or Options

Tick the Skip Blank Page and click OK


Following these steps should ensure your print outs are no longer dogged by blank pages providing wall-to-wall info.
