Printing blank pages - ricoh 1045


Our printer is printing blank pages and it has a new toner.

What could be the possible reasons and things i could try to solve this problem?

have you tried reinstalling the Printer driver ?
Try restarting the Spooler service.
does it print anything at all (eg is it printing a page as expected, and then sending out a blank page) - or is everything coming out blank?

What kind of printer do you have?  What OS are you running?

Printer doesnt print anything at all, just sends out a blank page.

The printer is also a photocopier and even when we photocopy something the page comes out blank.

The printer is a Ricoh Aficio 1045 and it is a scanner/photocopier/printer, it is networked and installed on various OS and does the same with each OS.

If you are making copies and they are blank then you probably need to call a ricoh dealer in your area. Without looking at it I would say chances are it's something with the corona wire.

Depending on where you are you can also use a Savin, Lanier, or Gestetner dealer as well, as Ricoh makes all of these units and the parts are the same.
Removed the seal inside the new toner yet?
