just installed new printer - it 9is recognised by my mac computer & when I try to print it goes through the motions but prints out blank pages
JA: Does your printer have a self-cleaning feature? (If so, you may have to run this several times to see results.)
Customer: no it doesn't - i have looked at that option. Iam using the ink cartridges it came with - should I perhaps change them ?
JA: When did you last replace the ink or toner? Have you tried wiping down the metal contacts on your printer and cartridges (if applicable)?
Customer: it is a new printer - have just set it up
JA: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: no thanks

  1. Choose System Preferences from the Apple menu , then click Software Update to check for updates.
  2. If any updates are available, click the Update Now button to install them. ...
  3. When Software Update says that your Mac is up to date, the installed version of macOS and all of its apps are also up to date.
