printer sounds like printing but nothing on paper

HP Officejet 3830
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

While printing the end pages were blank. Tried to re-print those pages and the printer sounded as if it were printing. But all pages blank. Printer shows adequate ink for color and B&W.

If the printer has been unused for a longer period ink inside ink cartridges gets dry and paper comes out blank. The ink levels show that there is ink inside cartridges, but if it gets dry it won't come out on the paper. You can try a few cleaning cycles or soaking ink cartridges ( bottom part ) in hot water hoping that hot water will dissolve dried ink.

Replacing cartridges will solve your problems for sure.
