Windows 7: Printer at work prints blank pages when my computer tries to print

Printer at work prints blank pages when my computer tries to print

My PC, running 64bit Windows 7 is printing blank pages on the work computer. I downloaded the necessary drivers needed to print from this computer to the printer, which is a CanonMX 340. The computer recognizes the printer and will print, but the pages that it prints are blank. The pages are blank whether I'm printing from the internet, a saved .jpg file or even a .pdf file. In order to connect to the printer, I plug in an ethernet cable, still nothing works. Any advice as to how to fix this issue would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

You may want to download the software package instead of just the driver. Usually blank pages (without this being an empty ink cartridge issue) is generally driver related.
