Question about Epson C64 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Epson C64 will not print

Printer asked for black cartridge so I replaced it with cartridge marked suitable for C64. Have replaced but still shows as empty and will not even print a test page. I have replaced all other cartridges just for sake of it and they appear to be registering. why wont it register the black?

All colours except the black appear to be printing on my Epson C64 InkJet printer. What could be the problem?


On this printer, the black colour is a separate cartridge.

It is possible that is has run out of ink or maybe is blocked in some way.

Try removing the black cartridge and hold it up to a bright light to check the ink level.

Make sure the contacts where the ink flows out are clean and not blocked with dirt.

If there is plenty of ink but it still won't print then try a new black cartridge.

Please rate my answer if you find this helpful.

Many thanks,

Will not print

Unfortunately, if you have replaced the cartridges and tried many cleaning cycles, then there is no solution other than replacing the unit. A good replacement would be the C88+

Only one colour showing at time of print

Maybe the ink well nozzle area has some dried ink left from the old cartridge. Remove the new cartridge carefully, and using a wet Q-tip,clean the area. Replace back the new black cartridge.
This worked for me ....good luck !

Colour printing

Check the following thread, it might apply to your problem. and just as a printer can be fooled to show a low level ink, I guess it can happen the other way around.,p342983/Epson-Stylus-Photo-R300-InkJet-Printer.aspx Good luck
