    I have changed the black ink. The printer also spits out blank pieces of paper. It looks as though it is printing but the pages come up blank.

This is a print head problem. I advise my customer to guy an extended warranty for any epson. The print head is the weakest link. It has to do with the electrical components of the piezo print head.

Epson Sylus C88 prints but there is no ink coming out


Have you tried cleaning the print head? A couple of times anyway and test print. If you use generic sometimes you'll need to clean print heads more often than if you used epson ink.

Epson C88 will not print, is flashing both paper and ink lights


I think you need to reset the counter, you can either take it into a epson service centre & have them reset it, or download a programme online.

you just need to google it, just type in service reset C88 that should do the trick.

Printer will not print anything. Ink levels are


If it has been longer than 3 or 4 weeks since anything last printed, the problem may be clogged print heads. Run thru several cleaning cycles and see if anything begins to appear on the paper. If not, changing the ink cartridges may solve the problem. If it's been quite a long time since last printing, you may need new (and expensive) printheads. If that's the case, replacing the printer would be more cost effective. Sorry for the bad news.

Epson stylus C88 won t print color ink black is


If you have carried out 4 to 5 head cleans, waited about 8 hours and done another 3 or head cleans doing nozzle checks after each clean (as recommended by the manual) and there is still no improvement then you will need a third party head cleaning solution such as this one:

Other makes & brands are available just google "inkjet head cleaning solution" Hope this helps.
