I have used this printer for almost 6 months and all of a sudden it will not print. I use the Serendipity Rip and also run 2 Epson 9800's. The 9880 does not show an error of any kind and when I send a job for printing, it goes through the rip as if it is going to print, but when it gets to the 9880 it sits idle. I have not changed anything from before, it is running through an ethernet setup. Is there a reset button or is this something that a tech must fix. Thank You in advance for any information

Re: Epson Stylus Pro 9880 Does Not Print
Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

i aint too sure if its the same but i had an epson printer with the same problem last year it would print half a page spit out and then print the same half a page again and just stuck in a loop even on printing disks it did the same i found out after by speaking to a printer specialist it was the printers eeprom which is the printers memory bank that was failing and nothing can be done with it
I have a 9800 - you can remove the print head, and try cleaning the nozzles manually and see if there's something on them. I'm sure any warranties would be void if you do such a thing, but - you're up for replacement of the print head anyway. So do with caution and at your own risk.
It takes about 30 mins and requires a reasonable level of skill. Search around and get the service manual - they are out there pretty easy to find. They give step-by-step procedures to get it apart safely.
Then clean the print head with either rubbing alcohol or hot water (alcohol is probably better). If your print head got stuck on tape, you might have the glue from the tape on the print head. So some kind of solvent to remove the glue - again - be careful and watch that you don't create further problems.
I've done similar with my printer and it still works fine and haven't had to change the print head for the past few years.
The print head clean maintenance is usually located in the printer Properties.
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.
