HP Deskjet 2636 Will only print the test page, all other print jobs are blank..

HP Deskjet 2636
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The Deskjet printer prints blank pages except for the Test Page. I have an HP Pavilion laptop, previously printed, but now prints blank pages, new ink cartridges, just started printing blank pages, redo all setups, prints a test page, but go to print out a document...i.e. my daughters resume for her job interview tomorrow... blank pages!!!

@RickKamehameha, Welcome to HP Support Community!

 

Are you able to make photocopies on the printer? If yes, follow the steps below-

 

Use HP Print and Scan Doctor

Download HP Print and Scan Doctor and run the program. It will automatically diagnose and fix any printing and scanning issues. 

For more information, go to https://support.hp.com/us-en/topic/printscandoctor

 

I recommend you delete the driver and root level and retry, follow the steps below: 

  

1) In Windows, search for and open Programs and features 

2) Select your HP Printer 

3) Select Uninstall 

4) In Windows, search for and open Devices and printers 

5) In the Devices and Printers windows look for your HP printer. If you see it listed right-click on it and choose ‘Delete’ or ‘Remove Device’ 

6) Open up the run command with the “Windows key + R” key combo. 

7) Type printui.exe /s and click Ok. (Note: there is a space in between “printui.exe”

😎 Click on the “Drivers” tab 

9) Look for the HP Printer driver. If you see it Click on it and click Remove at the bottom 

10) Select Ok 

11) Select Apply and Ok on the Print Server Properties windows 

12) Close Devices and Printers.

 

Now, download and install the full-featured software from here.

 

If the issue persists, try the Windows built-in drivers. Follow the steps below:

 

•    Go to Control Panel - Devices and Printers - Click on "Add printer" and follow the on-screen instructions.

•    When the page prompts for the drivers, select "Windows update". The driver list will be updated.

•    Click HP, Hewlett Packard, or Hewlett-Packard in the Manufacturer pane, and then click the name of your printer in the Printers pane.

 

Refer to this document HP Printers - Installing and Using the Windows Built-in Print Driver for help.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
