Print head or cartridge problems
Print head problems lead to printing of a blank page. With frequent use, print heads can become clogged because ink cannot come out from the cartridge, so the printer only prints a blank page. To avoid this you should clean your cartridge using a damp cloth or use an Iso-Propyl solution. You should always check if the amount of ink in the cartridge is enough for your current printing work, else it leads to a problem of blank pages being printed.
Paper size problems
Sometimes paper size leads to a blank page problem. If your settings do not match with the paper size it will lead to printing blank pages. So always be careful about your settings in the page setup dialog box and choose paper accordingly. You can choose the paper according to the font size and font type. This problem can be easily managed with a little care.
The absence of an image on the drum may be a problem for blank page printing. A power problem also can be a cause for blank pages. Power problems can be due to broken wires or high voltage problems.
