Please follow these steps:

1. reseat all of the ink cartridges
2. perform a cleaning cycle using your computers maintenance options

if you are using windows go to the control panel then look for the printers and faxes folder, right click on the icon of your specified printer then left click go to printing preferences.

on printing preferences click on the tab for maintenance then look for head cleaning. do it for 3 to 5 times then test by printing nozzle check

if it does not work the possiblity is that the nozzles might have been clogged with dried inks. try spraying it with wd40 then let it dry for 3 to 4 hrs then print.

take note that doing the head cleaning you can take a considerable amount of your inks

Epson Stylus C86 printing blank pages.


Ensure the proper procedures for installing an ink cartridge was done. Next, perform at least two cleaning cycles (hold down the ALT and the Pause button on the printer panel to initiate a cleaning cycle). Print out the demonstration page (press the ALT button while applying Power). If the problem persists and there is no improvement, take the printer to an Epson Authorized Service Center.

I refill my epson C60 cartridges and have a chip resetter. Now, the cartridges won't release ink when printing. I get a blank page. The printer recognizes the cartridges. What is causing the blank page?


Put the ink cartridge onto a damp paper towel.
Does ink "bleed" onto the paper towel?
If not, then the print-heads are clogged,
and you should run the "head-cleaning" software (part of the software package for the Epson printer).

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.;

New cartridges and pages come out blank


try to reseat the ink cartridges first, do a cleaning cycle for 4 to 5 times max then print usually it helps but if in case it does not spray the nozzle with wd40 let it dry for 3 to 4 hrs then try to print.. it will clear out the dried inks stuck on the nozzle path.

the nozzle is the one that punctures the hole of the ink

Blank printing


If you have already done head cleaning and nozzle check 3 consecutive times from the computer and has tried reseating all the ink cartridges and it still acts likes its printing but just prints out a blank page chances are your product already has a hardware issue. If you product is still within the 1-year warranty period from date it was purchased, I suggest that you contact Epson tech support for more options otherwise, you would need to get the product repaired by servicer located in your area.

Epson printing not printing


If you have already tried 3 consecutive head cleanings and nozzle check from the computer, tried reseating the inks and tried replacing the ink and it still acts like its printing but just provides a blank page chance are your printer already has hardware issue. The ink delivery system is already clogged. If your printer is still within the 1-year warranty period I suggest that you call Epson Tech support for more options otherwise, you would need to get the product repaired by an Epson certified service center.

Printer not printing


I hate Epson. Had problems with Stylus C82 and now my replacement Stylus C86 has given me nothing but trouble.
I've just replaced all four ink cartridges and now when I print I'm only getting blank pages. I uninstalled, reinstalled, and nothing is working. I even called Epson, twice, only to be routed to the Phillipines where neither person was very helpful, in fact, had a hard time understanding their English. So this is what I;m going to do. I'm taking this bloody Stylus C86 outside and smash it with a hammer..then I'm going to buy a HR Printer...and if anybody from Epson reads this...good luck...your products SUCK!!
