Prixma5320 printing blank pages.

We moved and now Canon Prixma doesn't print words/lines/letters. Nothing. Goes through the process, but only blank pages pop out. Apple and HP computers being used. I ran deep clean x 3 and head alignment.

Re: Prixma5320 printing blank pages.

Hi jj_Keller,


First, please make sure that the ink tanks are installed in the printer correctly and are in the correct order.  The order from left to right is as follows:


Next, a test of the printer should be performed.  This will tell us if the printer is working correctly.  To do this, please load letter-sized paper in the PIXMA MG5320 and follow these steps:

 1.  Press <HOME>.

 2.  Rotate the menu to Maintenance and press <OK>.

 3.  Press <OK> on Print nozzle check pattern.

 4.  Press <OK> on Yes.

The Nozzle Check will print.  Please compare your printout to the example that has been attached to this email.  If they differ, please perform a few printhead cleanings.

To perform cleanings, please follow these steps:

 1.  Press <HOME>.

 2.  Rotate the menu to Maintenance and press <OK>.

 3.  Press <OK> on Cleaning.

 4.  Press <OK> on Yes.

 5.  Press <OK> on Yes.

After a few cleanings, please print another Nozzle Check.

Does the Nozzle Check print correctly?


If not, please If you continue to have difficulties, please contact our support group using the following link:
