Why does printer work but not print? Do you need details?
I've tried all remedies in "troubleshooting" in manual.

I'll repost my last comment as an answer:

It sounds as if ink cartridges were empty, or dirty, or clogged, or something like. Have you checked that?

It was not *THE* solution, but at least it gave you a clue...

It means that the printer turns on, moves the paper through, even makes the back and forth noises just like it's printing... except then it sends a blank page out. The page even hesitates when there is a graphic...these are old, old, old little-memory LCIIs in a small, rural Arkansas high school jounalism class.
In other words, it looks like it's printing, it even sounds like it's printing...it just isn't, though. What else should I look for?

I replaced the both the color and the black ink cartridge, cleaned any ink I could see...there really wasn't much of
anything...then I pressed the printer button that clears
clogged things. The printer-check utility delivered a page
also absolutely blank when it's supposed to print lines to
help you determine what your problem is! This is maddening!

Thanks "Expert"
      ...it was not that the tanks had to be replaced but
the whole cartridge thing that they rest in! Of course we probably threw away perfectly good tanks of ink, now that I think about it.
      Anyway, thanks for your help. Do I have to do anything else in order that you get those points?
