Resolved Question:

My Canon Pixma MG6450 is making all the right noises when I send to print and even takes its time as if its printing but the page comes out blank, even when I try a test page. I have replaced all the ink cartridges. Any ideas or is it a repair job. Only been using it for 3 months but brought it about 18 months ago.

I think you deleted something else in the formula by mistake, I made it for A3 here=SUMPRODUCT(MID(0&A3,LARGE(INDEX(ISNUMBER(--MID(A3,ROW($1:$25),1))*
ROW($1:$25),0),ROW($1:$25))+1,1)*10^ROW($1:$25)/10)was this meant for me?
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
No, it was a mistake, for another customer, that's why I removed it.

What a nightmare, but a good one. I have tried this loads, maybe without unplugging for 10 minutes, Its printing now. Do you have any idea what was going on because none of the inks were dead empty and it was only advising that I change them. If one is really low do you think it stops the others printing. You would think that it wouldn't even go through the motions pretending it was printing. And why or how by turning it off can it resets itself? I am making you earn your £18 aren't I? Regards Steve
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Good to hear Steve and its no problem.It was a combination of restarting it and the print head clean we did. It forced it to check the ink, correct it and allow it to print again.Good its all working again!If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.And please take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit Thank you
