Question about Epson Stylus C88 InkJet Photo Printer
My espon c88 wont print black ink. All of the other colors print out. I've tried 2 different brand new black ink cartridges and multiple head cleaners. The black ink wont even print on the head cleaner print out.
I noticed this post as a solution to my problem:
"Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water."
I cant seem to locate the small rubber cup you're talking about. Under my print head parking area is a black and white piece of plastic (with cubed holes in them) and inbetween these two pieces are 2 verticle stips, one is a sponge, the other has 4 verticle dots with what looks to be ink color on it.
Am I totally lost? Could someone explain the small rubber cup further, or do you have another solution? Thanks in advance
Rectangular area next to the sponge is the cup they refer to. I have used houshole ammonia here and let it soke for a few minutes to dissolve dried ink.
