Ink cartridges dry out if they’ve not been used for a long period. To prevent the ink cartridges from drying out, you need to keep them primed by printing at least once a week. You should print with all four cartridge colors to keep all of them primed.

Your printer may be printing blank pages for several reasons like low ink, print settings, or defective product. 

Check for these factors to determine the cause of the problem:

  • Ensure that the cartridge is set on a flat surface extending on the base in different directions. The product will not operate if it is set at an angle.
  • If the cartridges are low on ink or old, replacements may be necessary.
  • Check if you’ve removed the yellow tape from the ink cartridges installed in your printer.
