It is the part you use to make a xerox type copy, if you lift the top of the machine there should be a glass platen. Load something onto it. Then on the home screen go into copy mode. Then press color or B&W. Press ok and then press start.

I apologize delay it looks like we are in different time zones I am in the EST USA. Next we need to see if it is only printing blank from all programs or only one specific program like word. Try printing this page and see if it comes out blank. Let me know what happens, please also let me know what version of windows or mac is on your computer.

There should be a printer icon you can click if you do not see that hold down CTRL and while holding that down tap P. That forces the print dialogue to open.
