The printer prints a blank page after every printed page. Never used to do it in its first year of service. PLease, any help would be appreciated. Virtual assistant was very limited in providing solutions Thanks.

Hi @Ryan1969,

 

Welcome to HP Support Community.  


Thank you for posting your query, I will be glad to help you. 

 

There are several possible reasons why your HP printer is printing a blank page after every printed page. Here are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the issue.

 

  • Check the ink or toner cartridges: Make sure that the ink or toner cartridges are not low or empty. Replace any cartridges that are low or empty, and try printing again.
  • Clean the printhead: Over time, the printhead on your printer can become clogged with dried ink or toner, which can cause printing issues. Check your printer's user manual for instructions on how to clean the printhead.
  • Check the print settings: Make sure that you haven't accidentally changed the print settings on your printer. Check to see if the printer is set to print blank pages or if it's set to print multiple copies of the same page.
  • Update the printer driver: Check our HP website for any available updates for your printer driver. Sometimes, outdated drivers can cause printing issues.
  • Reset the printer: Turn off the printer, unplug it from the power source, and wait a few minutes before plugging it back in and turning it on again. This can sometimes resolve printing issues.

 

I hope this helps. 


Take care and have a good day.
