Question about Epson Stylus C82 InkJet Printer

New black ink, but wont print any black ink

I have an Epson C82 printer which has been working fine, with the occasional glitches here and there. This weekend i bought a new black ink catridge and replaced my old empty one, but since then, no black ink has been printed. Ive done all the printer head cleanings and allignments, and even dabbed the ink head on some windex-soaked-towels but still nothing. solutions greatly appreciated.

Epson Printers are terribly designed. There is a known issue with them related to clogged ink wells. Below the cartridge the ink dries in the well and makes the printer unusable. I have seen this many many times and will NEVER recommend an epson printer. Most of the time I will have people go out and buy a new printer only because of the fact that you will be paying 50-70/hr labor for someone to FIX/Clean your printer. If you want to try to clean it yourself go ahead. I have done it in the past with varying success because it is more trouble than its worth to remove the inkwells and clean them properly. Buy an HP printer. The difference is that the HP cartridge is what contacts the paper directly. There is no inkwell inbetween to get clogged. When you buy a new HP cartridge you will replace everything between the ink and the paper. Epson is just a poorly designed product. Hack

BOUGHT NEW CARTRIGE FOR MY NX 415 AND THEY AREN;T REGOGNIZED!


If the cartridge is not the same code as the previous used by the printer, then it will not be compatible. Your printer has been replaced by Epson Stylus NX415 All-in-One
  • One 69 Black Ink cartridge (T069120)
  • One 69 Cyan Ink cartridge (T069220)
  • One 69 Magenta Ink cartridge (T069320)
  • One 69 Yellow Ink cartridge (T069420)

  • Therefore, ensure that the catridge follows the above code (69).
    Best regards.

    I have windows 7 and my printer won't print. it moves like its printing but it doesnt


    You may need to download an updated driver from the Epson site. Another ugly thought; if your printer has been off for a while, it may not print at all anymore. The brand is great for hard use, lousy for only occasional use. The ceramic printhead will clog and print no more.

    Epson 1400 won't print blacks


    Hi

    Many problems regarding Ink with Epson relate to using cheap ink consumables. I recommend you buy original Epson black ink catridge. I know its more expensive but you should see the black ink clear.

    Be sure to run head alignment and clean printer option first with the current black ink then replace with the new original Epson ink catridge

    Thanks

    Fine black vertical lines on color prints


    In this case what i would request u to do is.......
    Take out both the catridges from the Printer.........
    Take 2 Paper Towels one should be wet with Luke warm water and the other one should be dry...........
    Take the Colour catridge first turn it upside down and u will see a small copper plate on the catridge from where the ink comes out.......
    Place the wet paper towel using ur thumb on the Copper plate and press it a lit bit for 10 Seconds......
    Now remove it and see whether u see any ink on the paper towel..........
    U should see some ink on it now place the dry paper towel on the ink catridge in the same way........
    Now do the same procedure again..........
    Do the same procedure twice on the Black Catridge.................
    Now take the dry paper towel and turn the direction of the cartridge so that u can see a Copper plate on it with small boxes just clean that copper plate with the Dry Paper Towel..........
    Know insert both the catridges inside the Printer...
    Now Try to Print.............
    Will work Fine............
    Good Luck

    Epson C82 & C84 Printers will not laydown any ink!


    Sorry but It uses Durabrite ink which tends to turn into hard gel if not printed at least once a week. Its less painful and expensive to just throw the printer out and buy a new one. I recommend the canon PIXMA ip3500. It lets you remove the printhead for cleaning unlike the Epson. If you want to try your luck at unclogging the printer heres a link to a unclogging kit but be warned that results are not guaranteed!

    The C82 in addition to clogging also has a problem where the waste ink hose which is supposed to remove excess ink (so the printer dosent get clogged) gets disconnected and so the printer clogs even more. The C84 had this glitch fixed but alot of good that did!

    Trying to print black only document


    the problem with this printer is that all the inks have to be at a usable ink level, if any one of them are below the acceptable amount it will not print in any colour at all not even black.
