You can use USB or Parallel according to the user guide. Most laptops made recently wont have a parallel port and the cables are harder to find so I recommend USB.

If the printer isn't USB than it is LPT which is a large plug. If your laptop only has USB then try eBay for a USB to LPT printer cable.

Need to look at the back of the printer to see the connection port. It is a USB cable that connects the printer to the laptop or computer

Epson Stylus C86 smearing


Your printer has ink build up inside it. This comes from cleaning cartridges and builds-up steadily over time. Remove top cover. Wet a cotton swab with isopropyl alcohol (available at drug stores) and clean the inside. use a cotton bud where the swab gets entangled.

Epson stylus c86 series-paused


Go to your printers/faxes folder and right click on your printer and see if it's offline or similair. If no joy, right click on it and uninstall printer. Re-start your PC and let Windows find it again, but make sure the manufacturers driver automatically installs and not a Windows generic driver.
