open office printing help

Good Evening,
My 10 yr old has just tried to print via open office some homework but only managed to get blank pages.I got round it by exporting as a pdf and printing via foxit.
I subsequently downloaded abiword with same result any help appreciated.

I'd say that if both OpenOffice & AbiWord can't print you need to look at your printer rather than the software.

Does the printer have any ink?

That's what I thought but as it printed as a PDF, there must be ink!

What colour fonts are in use? I've seen a kid try to print white text on a white sheet before...
