Re: power on problem

There is an encoded registration strip just behind the print head near the drive belt. This needs to be clean and obviously attached. If the strip is too dirty or not present the head does not know where it is and crashes into the ends of the rail. If the strip is clean and located correctly but the head is still crashing around, then the optical sensor on the rear of the head may be faulty. This is usually uneconomical to repair. Get a service manual from as it shows where the encoder is located and how it is threaded through the head etc

My epson stylus c84 printer does not print


Thanks for using FixYa. The printer won't operate properly if it's tilted. Place it on a stable and flat surface. Please do not leave your printer turned on when not in use to avoid print heads being clogged. In the instant case the ink cartridges can also leak into the printer. If the print heads are clogged then run the head cleaning and alignment utility. The print head nozzles may also need cleaning.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Hi, Linda
You may buy cartriges of different producers.
Depending on producer on them can be or be not special yellow detachable labels.
These are an yellow labels must be removed from them. Then put cartridges back. And try to clean head 4-5 times. And check nozzle test.
Good luck.

I don't know if this will help but your problem sounds like one I had with a C82 model. On the right side of the printer below where the print head rests is a small plastic suction tube. This tube can become disconnected and will prevent the printer from printing. Check to see if this is your problem. In the picture the red circle shows where the tube connects and the yellow shows the tube.

Printer does not print

An ink supplier advised turning off the printer for 15 minutes, turn it on and try again. That worked once. Next time he suggested turning off printer, removing all cartridges, waiting 15 minutes, replacing cartridges. I couldn't do this without turning the printer back on and going through the replace cartridges routine. Now the nozzle check routine printed magenta and yellow only. I've run the head cleaner a number of times with no success.  Hope one of these suggestions works for you.

If any of the ink cartridges are needing to be replaced, the Epson C84 will not print, you will have to change the cartridge, if you lift up the printer lid the carrier will stop at the empty ink colour.
