Are you confident the ink cartridges are good? If not, replace them using the proper cartridge replacement procedure (see your handbook or view it on the Epson website). Have you carried out any head cleaning cycles? If not, do it. Have you done a nozzle check print? If not, do it. Any sign of ink on the paper? Yes, but not perfect? If so do a couple more head cleans and nozzle checks. If still not perfect, let it rest for 24 hours to disperse air bubbles. Then repeat.

If you have already done lots of head cleans with no result, and you're sure you have good ink cartridges properly installed, then you can try soaking the print heads for 24 hours (or more), as follows. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head
parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then try a head clean/nozzle check again. If still nothing, post a new comment detailing what you have done and the results.

Printer software cd is lost!


Pk I will try to answer this 2 ways. The first is to give you direct links to the drivers:

Windows: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?oid=41661&prodoid=46048263&infoType=Downloads&platform=Windows
Mac: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?oid=41661&prodoid=46048263&infoType=Downloads&platform=Macintosh

Just in case those dont work here is the process for finding the drivers you need:

  1. Go to www.epson.com
  2. click on USA
  3. In the search box in the upper right corner type c86 into the search box.
  4. Look at the list of resultsgiven and select the one that says "Drivers"
Hope this helps!

Printer won't work at all


In view of the 2-year elapsed time and lack of interest by the original poster, I think we may call this one "Solved by Poster".
