EPSON Stylus C88 Series not printing blue ink

I tried all the cleaning options, but my EPSON Stylus C88 Series will still not print blue ink. There is enough of all inks and all contrasts are at 0.

    print blue ink except on ink test documents. There is enough of all

    I am puzzled by your "all contrasts are at 0" - the C88 has no "contrast" setting as far as I am aware. Also, you say in your EDIT that it will print blue except on ink test documents. Do you mean it will print blue text (for example), but produces no blue output on a nozzle check?

    Please clarify.

From the lack of interest by koolcorgipro in this problem, I think we may say it has been solved by the poster.

Epson Stylus C88 Ink Jet Printer only prints in blue but when i look at ink levels they all almost empty


Replace all ink cartridges and the printer will work again. The level indicators are just indicators and are not precise.

Recently replaced all cartridges in C88 with new recently purchased Epson cartridges. Only blue and black ink prints. No red or yellow. Tried cleaning printer heads. Still no red or yellow printing.


You have to go to the properties of the printer and in the maintainance tab do some nozel cleaning and head cleaning.
and check it should be fine
thanks

I've replaced the ink cartridges on my mother's Epson Stylus C88 printer and it prints only green. Any suggestions?


Epsons usually give you an option to "clean the heads." Look for any Epson software on the computer, or it might be hidden within the "Properties" of that printer (in Control Panel).

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.

My Epson Stylus C88+ printer won't print


Sounds like there's a problem with the print head. I'd recommend doing a nozzle check, if any colours are missing from the print out then try some head cleans. You can find the nozzle check and head clean options in the maintenance/utility tab of your printer driver.

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.

Epson C88 printer only prints blank pages


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
