Sounds as though you have blocked nozzles - perhaps through leaving printer, especially in a dry atmosphere? Try going into the Printer's Properties dialogue box and then the Advanced tab to then use the Nozzle Clean routine. Ensure you always do a Nozzle Check after every cleaning cycle. That will improve the ink flow - should you have any still even slightly clogged - obtain some Ammonia - 5% solution is fine (some window cleaners have this - Windex with Ammonia in many countries - Ammonia of course will be a bit cheaper. To make a 5% solution (approx.) put a teaspoon into a cup of water. Make a pad of some linen say 4 layers (like a handkerchief as example) of about 6" x2". Set the printer into its Cartridge Changing mode - it will move the printhead. Then disconnect the power lead (NOT turn off or head will re-park). You can then freely move head so put soaked pad in well and move head until across pad so nozzles can soak up. Leave for a couple of hours. Slide head off and remove (now ink stained) pad. Just plug power back in and switch on (some Epsons will auto restart when power replaced - you may have to switch yours on). It will re-park head after doing a clean. Then do a nozzle check and should be fine.

SOURCE: Epson C82 & C84 Printers will not laydown any ink!

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 C82 in addition to clogging also has a problem where the waste ink hose which is supposed to remove excess ink (so the printer dosent get clogged) gets disconnected and so the printer clogs even more. The C84 had this glitch fixed but alot of good that did!

Thanks for reading!

SOURCE: Printer will not print in Black at all

Actually guys, I figured out that because I had been using the same ink cartridge for so many years that the print heads were terribly dried out. I bought from SuperMediaStore.com (its a site run by Yahoo!) $3/$4 ink cartridges, both black and color (they charge too much for shipping though), and I have absolutely no problem printing right now.

Look around online, and buy cheaper, maybe up to $10, cartridges, but do NOT buy these stupid OEM cartridges!! Most cartridges sold on the internet are up to OEM standards.

That worked for me, hope you guys have good luck!

Test page shows there is ink, but when I attempt to print a document it is barely the ink is not dark at all


It sounds like the print head nozzles are clogged. Check your online user's manual (if it is not on the install disk that came with your printer) for the cleaning procedures. Here's a link if you can't find it: http://files.support.epson.com/pdf/xp400_/xp400_qr.pdf
go to the section, "Checking the print head nozzles"
