    Suddenly the Pixma IP3500 will not print text. If I open A WORD document and press print, the paper feeds through blank. If I print the test page, it just prints the logo in the upper left corner. If a page has diagram on it, it will print the diagrams but not the text on the page.

    I am using Windows 7 and the printer has been working fine until now.

    I uninstalled the printer, rebooted the computer, and windows installed the driver.

    I performed all the cleaning tasks in maintenance.

    In addition, the printer does not show up in Device Manager.

    Did you print by going to file then print and then choosing the printer or did you just press the printer icon?
