Hook Up possible for EPSON Stylus 880 to new computer w/USB ?

Have a great old EPSON Stylus 880 printer. Recently HAD to buy new computer (Dell Vostro) which only offers a USB connection. Is there any adapter I can use to make the connection? The EPSON cable I'm told is proprietary w/13 pins over 12 pins (25 total). Have you any suggestions? I have a Epson color 760 printer. The new computer has USB connections. The 760 has a USB plus a 25 pin connector, colour grey. I there an adapter

There is no conversion cable that you can use with parallel connector since USB transfers data in Serial mode and the parallel cable handles data in Parallel mode.

I have an Epson Stylus Color 860 and 880 printers that worked great for years. Recently I changed the ink and used a cleaning head and when I try to print the ink comes out smeared across the page. I put...

It's possible the parking pad (otherwise known as the cleaning station) that the printheads normally rest on have become clogged or degraded and as a result the pump is no longer able to pump the ink out of the pads or indeed out of the printhead nozzles as it should normally.

I'd be slightly worried that the "cleaning head" hasn't in fact damaged the parking pad area and reduced the effectiveness of the seal around the whole thing.

Unfortunately it's very difficult to explain without pictures so I can't provide a full solution but hopefully that gives you a couple of new avenues to explore.

This is a very late response to your query, but you did have it in the C46 section. It sounds like you have blocked heads but there could be other reasons such as a faulty print head or main board. If you still require help with this problem, please post a new comment to this effect.

Epson stylus 880 all lights flashing

timsmilefam found a tech forum that solved this by jflan/mentor - give credit where deserved - THANKS! IT WORKED!!
his may be a call for your waste ink pad to be serviced.
Every time your printer goes into a cleaning cycle ink is pulled through the head and stored in this waste ink pad.
There is a procedure for this but it is more involved than the average owner will want to get.

A way to temporarily silence the flashing until the printer can be serviced may be :

"Turn the printer on while holding down both the ink and paper buttons. When the paper light flashes release both buttons, then press and hold down the ink button for 10 seconds. This allegedly resets the printer to "new" condition."

Hoe to connect the epson stylus to my computer

Hi Please provide more details.....I'll assume you have an older computer with only the large parallel port to connect to a printer, but the new printer requirews USB printer connection. If this is the case, unless your computer is VERY old, you should be able to buy a USB card to install in an empty PCI slot in your computer, and all should be fine. If you have Windows 98 you will probably have to install drivers. Good Luck!
