I was printing on my MAC 10.1.1 yesterday with my Epson print that is maybe 3 or 5 years old, but not a lot more than that. Finally my printer ink leaked out onto the floor. Now my printer isn't lighting up.

Re: Leaking Printer with the MAC
Please confirm that your printer is a C86. Where did the leak come from? If you are not sure, place a thick wad of newspaper or other absorbent material on the floor and put your printer on it. Tip the printer on its back. Does ink now start to come out from the long joint along the back. If LOTS of ink comes out, it means your waste ink compartment is flooded, and I suspect ink has got into your power supply and shorted something. Please report back; the situation sounds bad, but might be retrievable.

Help me please my Epson Stylus SX215 black ink won`t print. I cleaned the head 3-5 times and the nozzle but it still wont`t print black , it is brand new.Is it because the printer didn`t work maybe 2 months. Yesterday i bought all inks and the other are working , the black no :[ please help
to print you have to
1- remove the old driver from your mac
2- install the driver agin
3- do a nozzle check on the printer
4- if the mac didn't recognize the printer so you have to change the usb printer cable with a new one
thank you and good luck
In the print queue there is an advanced tab that takes you to see how much ink you have etc. Go to the maintenance tab and select the cleaning option. Be aware that this uses up a lot of ink doing this. But once you have done it check the nozzle printout to see that it is continuous in its printing on all colors. keep at it till it is. To prevent this from happening in future keep the printer on Epson dont say that turning it off can cause the ink to solidify in colder weather. I have come to leaving mibe on 24 hrs a day or taking the cartridges out and then printing a pic till all color is used fromj the reservoir. This has kept my EPSON 90 going for 10 years my Epson A3 died within 3 years from clogged jets
possible printhead issue. Cartridges maybe outdated too. If you haven't used the printer in a while, the inks on the nozzles will dry out, thus clogging the printhead nozzles. If your cartridges are installed over 6 months now, it may be outdated. Replace cartridges if they are already outdated.
Do a printer check by printing a nozzle check pattern from the printer. To print a nozzle check pattern, turn the printer off. load 10 sheets of regular paper into your printer. hold down the paper button while you turn the printer on, keep on holding down the paper button. let go of the paper button when the powerlight is already blinking. If there are gaps or missing colors on the nozzle check pattern, please do 3 head cleanings. compare the nozzle check pattern over the last printout. If you see improvement on the pattern, continue cleaning the printhead till you get a perfect nozzle check pattern.
If there are no improvements, your printer may need service.
