I have an XP-305 printer which was installed

Customer Question

I have an XP-305 printer which was installed for me some time ago but hasn't been used - much until now. I have just replaced 4 inkjet printers and have tried to print a document. However first I got blank pages and just now the paper was going through and it sounded as though the page was printing - but it wasn't! Can you help? I am probably the least technical person you've ever to deal with!!

Hello my name is***** look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem.
I want to warn you that it is possible you will need to replace a part in order to fix this.
There are a few different things that can cause this and a couple different parts so we would need to troubleshoot to find out for sure.

Bearing in mind that I'm a 'technophobe(!) and freeze at the sight/sound of any technology - I think I have Windows 7
