Question about Epson Stylus C88 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Epson C88 We have an Epson C88 that's connected to our Hasler WJ250 mail machine for daily 3-4 page reports. It is constantly out of ink. We changed the color cartridges for the first time 4 months ago. Now it says it's low again. All the lights are blinking and we can't print reports except on meter tapes. Does Epson make a printer with only black ink that we could use in this one's place?

Epson C88 will not print, is flashing both paper and ink lights


I think you need to reset the counter, you can either take it into a epson service centre & have them reset it, or download a programme online.

you just need to google it, just type in service reset C88 that should do the trick.

Epson stylus C88 won t print color ink black is


If you have carried out 4 to 5 head cleans, waited about 8 hours and done another 3 or head cleans doing nozzle checks after each clean (as recommended by the manual) and there is still no improvement then you will need a third party head cleaning solution such as this one:

Other makes & brands are available just google "inkjet head cleaning solution" Hope this helps.

Changed the black ink on epson c88 and it will not print


Hi,

Unfortunately yes... you need to have at least some ink in each cartridge or the printer will refuse to work.

I did post up a long explanation of why this was on another solution but I can't find it so short version is that it does this to stop damage to the printhead nozzles.

Hope that helps.

Epson Stylus C88 no longer will print colors


you mean it goes intothe motion of printing and the paper comes out blank ?
you already changed the cartridges and performed print head cleaning. it is having a hardware failure and it needs service. (get a new one instead)(contact the manufacturers customer service and ask for the loyalty program - discounted price)
sad to say but theres no fix-it-yourself for that issue. (you can verify it with the manufacturers tech support)

Epson C88 printer only prints blank pages


See my post about about underhead cleaning. If that makes no difference you will need the countermeasure for the split cap tube. The document about loss of ink on CX series machines is also applicable to C88
