There are numerous possible causes for a printer that's randomly producing blanks. The most common ones are empty ink cartridges, improper cartridge installation, and congested nozzles. Driver and software issues can sometimes cause this problem as well.

I just put new ink in it and it's oem Canon ink it printed when I put the ink in then it stopped working so I had to go into the software and re set it up but when I did it now prints blanks?
