My HP Deskjet D4260 Printer prints blank pages

Deskjet D4260 acts like it is printing but the pages just come out blank.  There is ink that is not the problem. Can someone please help me fix this problem.  I am running Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit service pack II

Hello Sponzy.

 

I understand you are receiving blank pages when printing a document from your Deskjet D4260. Please print a "Self Test Page" from this HP document here. If you are receiving defective printouts from the test page, then follow this entire document to try and resolve your issue.

 

Please inform me your troubleshooting steps.

 

Looking forward to hear from you.

Re: My HP Deskjet D4260 Printer prints blank pages

Suppose I also print only blank pages, and try to do the self-test but said test doesn't engage? 

Prior info helpful: haven't printed in over a year. Assumed ink was dry so shook it a bit. Levels say low but not empty, still nothing prints on the page. 

 

Thanks

Hi WannaPrint,

 

I understand you have a Deskjet D4260 that is printing blank pages. I will certainly do my best to assist you with this.

 

Even though the printer is registering that there is ink in those cartridges, after a year they would be dried out. If they're in a package it would be a different story, but sitting in a printer for over a year and not being used for anything, even maintenance, they would definitely be dried out. I would suggest getting new cartridges, but if you are determined to get the current cartridges working, you're welcome to try the steps in this Missing Colors in Printout document and you can also manually clean the cartridges by removing them and cleaning the copper contact portion with a lint free cloth and distilled water.

 

Hope this helps, have a great day!

I don't see where I can "accept as solution" but I did what you recommended and it worked; thank you!
