Solved Why is canon pixma printing blank pages?

Specs: Windows 7
I have a canon pixma mg5350 printer. It is printing blank pages. I have tried all the cleaning maintenance including deep cleaning, as well as cleaning the print head with chemical and hot water. It has made no difference. Any further suggestions as to what the problem is, or should I just scrap the printer?

Difficult to ever be 100% but if the ink is OK it is very likely that the head is blocked beyond cleaning.

It might require a new print head, which can often be expensive with old printers.

Try printing a setup or configuration page from within the printer control panel. If it doesn't print, it's a printer problem. If it does print, it's an issue with the computer and we can go from there.

Thanks for responses. I went into printer control panel and printed a test page and it printed a blank page. Does this confirm the printer head is broken?
