Excuse my ignorance. Computers aren't exactly my thing. <_<
So I try to print something on my Lexmark. It seems like the printer gets the signal
to print, it starts making the printing noise and everything.When it's finished "printing", I discover there aren't any words on the paper.Then I tryed my Canon, the same thing happened. I know both printers are not completely out of ink. Thinking it was some kind of problem directly related to the computer, I try both printers on a different computer and the same thing happens.

What's wrong? Is it the cable? Help me please!

If these are inkjet printers and haven't been used for a while, it's possible for the ink head to dry out, preventing it from printing, even though they have ink. Try cleaning the print head. There should be a cleaning option in your printer setup menu.
