HP Envy 5530 Printer prints blank pages

HP Envy 5530

Recently, whenever I try to print anything, the pages are just blank. I've tried to check the ink cartridge levels but they are fine. When it's printing, it sounds like something is actually being printed on the page but it's completely blank. I've tried to use the Clean Printhead option under the Tools section on the printer and also have tried to take out the ink cartridges and put them back in. I've tried restarting it as well. My printer is only about 5 years old so I don't think it's just broken but I'm not sure...Any advice on how to fix this?

Welcome to HP forums.

 

Did make a copy and check if that prints fine?

 

Meanwhile:

Print a Print Quality Diagnostic report

  1. Load plain white paper in the paper tray.

  2. On the printer control panel, touch the Settings icon , and then touch Tools.

    The Tools Menu displays.

  3. Touch Print Quality Report.

    The printer prints the Print Quality Diagnostic report.

  4. Figure : Example of a Print Quality Diagnostic report with no defects

  5. Image: Example of a Print Quality Diagnostic report with no defects

If this does not print fine, try the steps mentioned in this document:- Click here

 

If the issue persists, that should be a hardware issue.

I request you to talk to HP support.

They might have multiple options to help you with this.

1) Click on this link - www.hp.com/contacthp/

2) Click on "Continue as guest".

3) Enter the serial of your device.

4) Select the country from the drop-down.

5) Click on "Show Options".

Fill the web-form. A case number and phone number will now populate for you.

 

Let me know how it goes.

Thanks for your response! It's actually not making copies either. And if I try to do the Printer Diagnostics it still prints a blank page. Any other ideas?

Clean the ink cartridges.

  1. On the printer control panel, touch the Settings icon .

  2. Touch Tools, and then touch Clean Printhead. The printer cleans the printhead, and then prints a test page.

  3. Check the print quality of the test page.

    • If the print quality is good, touch Done.

    • If the print quality is not good, touch Clean Again.

I hope that helps.

Hi again,

Thanks
