Question about Epson Stylus C84 InkJet Printer
I have an Epson DX4000. It copies fine but when printing from the net colour is fine but black has lines missing. Have done the nozzle check, head cleaning and realignment. Still doing it. Any ideas what else I can try. I have a 5 year old Epson Stylus C84 and its doing the same thing (not printing every 3rd line). I just installed a new black ink cartridge and have done several nozzle cleans and alignments with no improvement...HELP!
You have the classic single nozzle failure it appears. You say you have done a nozzle check. This should reveal that one of the black nozzles is not working i.e. there is a single gap in your nozzle check printout for the black nozzles. Now, this may be due to a blocked nozzle. Try the following print head soak process.
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 again. If still nothing, report back

After about week of my Epson CX6000 printer being unplugged, my roommate lifted up the ink then put it back down and now my printer works again, I'm assuming that fixed it because now it works again.
