Epson Artisan 50 Inkjet Printer

Selected FAQ

Q:
What should I do if my printer is printing blank pages?
A:
Check the following:

  • Make sure the Artisan 50 Series is selected as your printer.


  • Make sure the print head nozzles are not clogged.


  • Make sure the printer software settings are appropriate for the paper size you’re using.


  • The ink cartridges may be old or low on ink, and you may need to replace them.


  • The printer won’t operate properly if it’s tilted or at an angle. Place it on a flat, stable surface that extends beyond the printer base in all directions.


  • If you’re using Windows, activate the Skip Blank Page setting.


    1. Right-click the printer icon in the lower right corner of your screen (taskbar) and select Printer Settings.


    2. Click the Maintenance tab.

    3. Click the Speed & Progress button, then click Skip Blank Page.


  • Try printing a different document to determine if the problem is limited to one document. If the problem is with one document, try recreating the document.


  • You may need to uninstall your printer software and then reinstall it (Windows or Macintosh).
