Question about Epson Stylus C88 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

My epson c88+ only prints in faint blue. Everything is hooked up fine and I have went through all the troubleshooting I can find online but nothing is even remotely helpful. The best I can get is get new cartridges which is useless because I just put new cartridges in today after not using the printer for a long time. I have made sure all 4 ink cartridges are inserted correctly as well. All my settings are reset to defaults but nothing is helping. Please help me.

    Yes I have. It didn't work at first but after I did Head Cleaning 3 or 4 times the black ink started to work.

    Pull out the Blue Cartridge and prepare some 20ml of water and 10% alcohol, put it on extra CAP of jar or bottle and place directly the print head area to it. Leave it about 2 to 4 hours to remove the sticky ink in the surface.
    Use the CAP to mix the 20ml of water and 10% alcohol.

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

SOURCE: 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.

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

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.

Epson C88 will not print, is flashing both paper and ink lights


I think you need to reset the counter, you can either take it into a epson service centre & have them reset it, or download a programme online.

you just need to google it, just type in service reset C88 that should do the trick.

Epson Stylus C88 puts the job in the queu and doesn't print


Have you tried running an independent printer check - see

If the printer prints the test page OK, it means the problem is with the computer. If it were a PC, I would uninstall, reboot and then re-install the driver software. Maybe this will work with a Mac?
