    same problem, black ink not working, prints about one in three lines, mostly blank lines and what it does print is faint and half the line erased. It has a pattern though, always attempts to print one line then miss about 3 or 4 lines completly. Tried nozzle and head cleaning through on the printing preference -> maintainence.

    same problem here with epson c66 not printing black with a full cartridge

    Yup, same problem. I've run maintenance several times, but still no black. I just put in fresh cartridges, and the software is showing all the ink levels are full, so getting frustrated.

My epson stylus c66 is only printing black and blue and not yellow or red


The ink reservoir doesnt have to be completely empty to fail. Replace the cartridges. Some of the jets or all of them may be clogged especially if you have not used your printer in a while. If there are cleaning instructions in the manual clean the jets and then try to print from the printer's self test

Hello, our C66 printer won't print. It has been unused for about 2 years, we've put all new ink cartridges in, downloaded the latest drivers, and nothing gets printed. You can go through all the test...

The most likely cause is the print head nozzles are blocked with dried ink and inserting new ink cartridges won't fix this problem. You need a new print head.
Print heads are not cheap, you may be better putting your money towards a new printer.

If you have tried new cartridges and many cleaning cycles with no change, then it would be best to just replace the unit. Contact Epson as they may be able to offer you a good price on a replacement unit.
