See details from Epson's product manual for troubleshooting printing blank pages.


Blank pages print
Try one or more of these solutions:


Make sure that you are using the appropriate printer driver for this product.

In Windows, make sure this product is selected as the default printer.

Check the settings on the Main menu (Windows) or in the Page Setup dialog box (Macintosh). Make sure the settings are appropriate for the paper size you are using.

Run the Head Cleaning utility to clear any clogged nozzles. See "Cleaning the Print Head" in the Quick Reference Guide.
After trying one or more of these solutions, run a printer operation check to check your results. See Running a printer operation check.

Running a printer operation check
If you are unable to determine the source of the problem, performing a printer operation check can help you determine whether the problem comes from this product or the computer.

Follow these steps.

Disconnect the USB cable from your computer.


Make sure that letter-size paper is loaded in the sheet feeder.


Press the On button while also pressing the Ink button.


This product prints an operation check page that includes a nozzle check pattern.

Compare the quality of the printed test page with the sample shown below. If there are no print quality problems, this product is fine and the problem probably lies with the printer software settings, the application settings, the interface cable (be sure to use a shielded cable), or the computer itself.




If the test page does not print satisfactorily, there is a problem with this product. For example, if bands appear in the check pattern as shown below, an ink nozzle may be clogged or the print head may be misaligned. See "Cleaning the Print Head" in the Quick Reference Guide for details on cleaning the print head.

Rock's right. We need more info to help you.


 

 
One situation is, if you are in "Word" and have a lot of extra paragraph spacing, or the ENTER key strokes, this creates added spacing. An example of this is, such as after Page No. 1 which has text on it and followed by several ENTER strokes on this same page No. 1 will carry over to Page No. 2 and give you a blank page after the first page of printed text. Just reduce your blank paragraph spacings and you'll come out ok.
