Question about Epson Stylus D88 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

I have an Epson D88 Inkjet Printer which is a couple of years old. Both the ink and the paper lights or flashing. The manual recommends taking to the dealer but it is not worth it. Any tips on a quick fix?

Could it be you're out of ink and paper simultaneously? But is it even worth buying more ink to find out if this is the cure? If so, I'd try generic ink cartridges to minimize the cost of the experiment. On the other hand, you could probably replace the printer, with new ink cartridges for not much more than the cost of ink for your old printer. They're made to be throwaway, unfortunately.

My power light flashes and the paper light on. whats the matter, anybody??


Did you try to switch of and on the printer?
Could be something is obstructing the print head if the lights come on again.
Switch of the printer and check is anything (paper or something else like paperclip or...) is blocking the printer head. Remove the obstruction and switch the printer back on.
Epson has great support online that is more than just a manual or a new driver. Visit Epson just Google epson and the product name. skip the selling sites and go straight to Epson.

Epson D88 will not print, both red lights flash, message remove obstruction switch off and on. No change still 2 redlights flashing


The Lights can flash on an error and also iff the INK levels are down. You must check the ink levels and try to do a reset with printer software reinstalled.
Remvoe pinter from the PC, unistall and then reinstall to see if the printer shows the INK level exactly. If not replace INK cartridges to confirm.

Epson d88 printer just floods the paper with ink


Sounds a lot like you have an ink pressure issue and at a guess you are using a CIS (Continuous Ink Supply) system.

I would refer back to the documentation that came with your printer and make sure that you are not overpressuring the printhead with the ink reservoirs set too high or some part of the priming process has been missed.

More information about your printers setup would definitely help ID more specific issues that could be causing this.

My epson d88 printer has 2 flashing lights, the ink charge and paper feed lights. this is preventing me printing out. this happened after i tried to change my inks. can anybody help?


I just had the same problem. Try opening the top flap on the printer and see if you can click the lid down on the ink cartridge box more firmly (until it clicks) - i had to force the cartridges to the left slightly to do this, although I'm not sure if thats neccessary. Then i pushed the cartidge box back to the right where it was before. The 2 red lights still flashed for me, but when i turned the printer off and on again it worked just fine. I hope this helps.

MY EPSON D88 PRINTER HAS 2 FLASHING LIGHTS


This is usually caused by a problem with the chip(s) on the new cartridge.

Check that the chips are clean, and are correctly installed on the cartridge(s) (some can be knocked out of alignment and thus not connect properly).

Also check for any damage to the tiny wires in the printhead where the cartridge sits.. These can also become soiled with fluff, etc... Be VERY careful if you try to clean these as they are very delicate and if broken off you will have a broken printer.

Last thing is of course to check you have the correct cartridges... A common one with the D88 is to have C86 cartridges which are not compatible at all (different' chips!).

Hope that helps.
