Go to your printers/faxes folder and right click on your printer and see if it's offline or similair. If no joy, right click on it and uninstall printer. Re-start your PC and let Windows find it again, but make sure the manufacturers driver automatically installs and not a Windows generic driver.

All print jobs stay in queue

I recently installed CUPS. At first everything looked good, the server started and i was able to add printers with the browser or KDE-Control center.
I tried to add an Epson Stylus C86, which is connected at my USB Port. It really looked good too, cups automatically found the printer on the usb-port and suggested the right driver. I added it, configured it and tried to print a test page.
The job was added correctly in the queue but nothing happened. it was just pending there.
I took a look at the error log but there wasnt anything suspicious, so i set the logging level to debug and tried again. After reading through that (now very long) log again, i still wasnt able to find anything false or any error.
Im a bit clueless now, no errors, smooth install and no signs of anything wrong. OR

Epson Stylus C86 printing blank pages.

Ensure the proper procedures for installing an ink cartridge was done. Next, perform at least two cleaning cycles (hold down the ALT and the Pause button on the printer panel to initiate a cleaning cycle). Print out the demonstration page (press the ALT button while applying Power). If the problem persists and there is no improvement, take the printer to an Epson Authorized Service Center.

Go to control panel on your computer, then go to printers and other hardware or printers and faxes, right click on epson icon and left click on resume printing, or you can cancel the document then when it says 0 and ready as status, try printing again.

Printer not printing

I hate Epson. Had problems with Stylus C82 and now my replacement Stylus C86 has given me nothing but trouble.
I've just replaced all four ink cartridges and now when I print I'm only getting blank pages. I uninstalled, reinstalled, and nothing is working. I even called Epson, twice, only to be routed to the Phillipines where neither person was very helpful, in fact, had a hard time understanding their English. So this is what I;m going to do. I'm taking this bloody Stylus C86 outside and smash it with a hammer..then I'm going to buy a HR Printer...and if anybody from Epson reads this...good luck...your products SUCK!!
