Customer Question
Printing blank pages Technician's...

Printing blank pages

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried running your printer's self-cleaning cycle? (Sometimes you have to run this several times to see results.)

How do I do that?

Technician's Assistant: The Printer Technician will be able to walk you through that. Have you tried wiping down the metal contacts on your printer and cartridges?

Yes

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

I'm just looking to see if this printer works before tossing it out.
