Canon PIXMA MX712 worked great, no degradation in print quality (over last 1.5 years). Suddenly won't print or copy anything. Can't print wirelessly (from IPAd or computer) or plugged in with USB directly to laptop. Can't copy. Makes normal print head sounds and "prepares" to print. Sounds like it is working and spits out nothing but blank pages. Tried doing test print and nothing shows up on page. Tried doing a deep clean and still nothing. Tried unplugging and letting it reset and turn back on and still nothing. Tried switching out printer cartridges and still nothing. All lights are on for the print cartridges. The printer says it is ready and never received a print error. Please help me stop getting nothing but blank pages. It would seem normal to start having streaking or blotchy prints, but not just to work great one day and then stop.

When ink does not print, we recommend performing at least one cleaning and two deep cleanings on the printer to try and get it to print. Since you have also replaced the ink cartridges, we can perform a print head alignment to see if this will allow the ink to print. To do this, please follow the steps located at the link below:
If you still are unable to get ink to appear on the page after performing the alignment, the printer will require servicing. Please click on the Contact Us link below for servicing options.
