Question about Epson Stylus C88 InkJet Photo Printer
I did the head cleaning also change the cartridge the printer is printing no ink on paper
Hi Kontiki28. It seems you either have seriously blocked black ink nozzles, or you have faulty black ink nozzles. You can try the nozzle cleaning method described below, but remember it can take quite a while.
Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves out of its parking position, 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 by hand fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Do not turn the printer on at any stage in this process. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then turn the printer on and try a head clean/nozzle check again. If you get any black ink on the nozzle check, then there is hope! Repeat the process until you get a full black nozzle check.
If nothing, repeat the process once more. If still nothing, post a new comment detailing what you have done and the results.
