Epson c84 printer not printing after installing new ink cartidges

Hi,I have an epson stylus c84 inkjet printer. It has been working just fine. I use it daily. I just replaced all 4 ink cartridges and now it is putting out blank pages, no ink at all on them. Was I supposed to remove something on the ink cartridges before I put them in?Thanks for your help,Linda

Hi, Linda
You may buy cartriges of different producers.
Depending on producer on them can be or be not special yellow detachable labels.
These are an yellow labels must be removed from them. Then put cartridges back. And try to clean head 4-5 times. And check nozzle test.
Good luck.

Problem for Epson Stylus C84 InkJet Printer
Re: C84 I'm using generic ink, but the red
By mclamemo on Nov 12, 2009 re: C84 I'm using generic ink, but the red doesn't work at all. I've done all the printer cleaning programs and swabbed inside the printer with alcohol, and re-inserted the cartridge multiple times. it still doesn't print at all.

Also now even the black every few lines prints the top half of the line or the bottom half of the line, or its smeared, etc...

Help!

I have learned from experience, that Epson does not like generic ink. You must use Epson Genuine Cartridges. Hopefully, you haven't screwed up the printer, like I did. I did try cleaning the heads and doing everything possible. Use 2 cartridges of ech set, for cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. ......But Nothing.
Had to go out and purchase a new printer.;

Printer wont print out in colour The inks are full. The black ink works but not the colour inks, Epson stylus C84


Epson Requires Original Epson Ink.
Colors will not come out as they should, and then the words will print out only either top or bottom.
Good Luck....

Epson Stylus C84


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 durabrite inks that EPSON invented is brilliant when you print pictures but it tends to harden very easily

Epson c84 ink cartrages


Hello Carla, can you manually clean the heads where the ink delivers the printer. Try using the printers own program first then do a manual clean with proper cleaning solution if this will not work.

BIG PROBLEM


If any of the ink cartridges are needing to be replaced, the Epson C84 will not print, you will have to change the cartridge, if you lift up the printer lid the carrier will stop at the empty ink colour.
