Question about Epson C64 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Will not print

My Epson Stylus C64 was working fine, but when I tried to print yesterday it went thru the motions of printing but the paper always came out blank. I installed all new cartridges and also cleaned the heads many times but nothing works. It acts as if it lost its brain. I also notice that it used a lot of black ink during the cleaning. I also ran all the tests and nothing was printed out at all after cleaning the heads.

Re: Will not print

Unfortunately, if you have replaced the cartridges and tried many cleaning cycles, then there is no solution other than replacing the unit. A good replacement would be the C88+

I have an Epson Stylus NX100, that worked fine about a month ago. I needed to get something printed off and when I attempted to print, the paper went through and it went through the motion of printing but...

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Epson does not like Generic/Compatible Cartridges

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc. These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......

I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .

Put back in Genuine Cartridges, and see if it works. This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Acts like it's printing, ink is good, but nothing prints out on paper.

Nothing at all? Poor you are. The pump may damage or lost electricity.

Wont print any text

Good day!
That problem happens when the connection of cable is loss from the printer to the unit. Please try to check the cable. If it is on network check if the printer was shared.
