My product is printing blank pages from Windows or my Mac. What should I do?

  • Check the following:
    • Make sure the print head nozzles are not clogged.
    • In Windows, make sure EPSON NX130 Series is selected as your product. For Mac OS X, make sure EPSON Stylus NX130 is selected in the Page Setup and Print windows.
    • Make sure the product software settings are appropriate for the paper size you're using.
    • The ink cartridges may be old or low on ink, and you may need to replace them.
    • If you're using Windows, select the Skip Blank Page by clicking the Speed & Progress button on the Maintenance of the product driver.
    • If you're using Mac OS X 10.4, check the Skip Blank Page setting under Extension Settings in the product driver's Print dialog box. When it is selected, blank pages in your data are not printed.
    • If you're using Mac OS X 10.5 and 10.6, check the Skip Blank Page setting under the Driver tab. When it is selected, blank pages in your data are not printed.
    • Try printing a different document to determine if the problem is limited to one document. If it is, try recreating the document (with copy and paste, for example).
    • You may need to uninstall the software and then reinstall it.
