you need to remove the old one and reinstall the new driver.

Also look at the document.  Extra line feeds or possibly an end of document page break causes this. I frequently have to clean up extra line feeds at the end of a document.

When you Print do a print preview to see what is being sent to the printer prior to it being printed to verify what you intend to print is being sent.

Does the printer print anything besides blank sheets? For example, does it print blank sheets after the expected pages? Or does it print only blank pages?

If only blank pages, from multiple applications, then you need to completely reinstall the driver, as follows. First go to Control Panel > Programs and Features. If the printer is listed there, uninstall it. Next go to Devices and Printers. Delete the printer. Then click on any other printer (even the PDF or XPS printer) and select Print Server Properties from the menu that appears at the top. Click the drivers tab and remove the printer from the list. Then install the printer again, either from the CD or from a downloaded driver.

Note that the link @Sam gave is for the 64 bit driver. If your PC is 32 bit, then go to this link for your driver.

So have you reinstalled the driver?

and can you print  a diagnostic page of the printer, from the printer itself?

copy function works. Without using the computer. Press the black and white copy button and page from scanner is printed.

I made no changes yet
rgb192Author Commented:
So without making any changes I know that unconnected printer/scanner scans a page and prints it.

All that proves is that the printer and scanner hardware are working fine. It proves nothing about the driver.
