Question about Epson Stylus C88 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer is printing whole page/page instead of highlighted lines.

I have an Epson Stylus C88+ Ink Jet printer that is two years old and all of a sudden it's printing all the page/pages Instead of what I've highlighted to print. Contacted Epson and followed their instructions for update of drivers and still having the problem. Have scanned for viruses. Would someone help me with this problem. Thanks, Robert Argo

    Hi Robert - the printer only prints what the computer sends it. Does this occur with all applications or just one e.g. Word?

Are you confident the new cartridges are full and in-date? Can you confirm that the old cartridges were not removed until immediately before the new cartridge was installed. Did you remove the yellow tape from the new cartridges before you installed them? Were the cartridges changed properly such that an ink charging cycle occurred. Have you carried out any head cleaning cycles recently? If not, do it. Then do a nozzle check print. Any improvement? 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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Epson stylus C88 makes black horizontal lines on the print

C88 First the printing had horizontal lines incomplete printing etc. After about 20 head cleanings which did nothing to correct the problem I get a warning "service required" and it won't print at all.
I also got a warning saying "some parts of your printer are nearing the end of their duty cycle."
My solution is to teach Epson an expensive lesson for their money gouging PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE anti-consumer attitudes. I expect to kill thousands of sales.

Epson Stylus C88 - New Epson Factory ink cartridges. Nothing prints, although printer goes through the motions of printing. What could be wrong? Ink levels are fine.


You should run a nozzle check to verify if the heads are printing all the inks correctly. If the pattern is incomplete you need to run head cleanings.

One line per page of printing has a white line through the printer line. It is not in the same spot on each page.


Clean the rollers inside the printer. That should remove anything that is blocking the ink flow onto the paper

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
