Epson Stylus C88 Printing Problem

Hi,
When I attempt to print with my C88 printer, I am getting large bands of all the colors printing over each other. The text is printed, it is covered by the bands of color.

I do have Epson Ink Cartridges in it, I installed new ones.

Of course, I am needing to print something for my Sister as she is making a presentation at her church this evening.

If you could help I would really appreciate it..

Peggy

    Hi Siramoju,

    Apparently ink cartridges I had previously ( I have changed the cartridges when this problem occurred) leaked. The entire bottom of the printer is ink soaked, the sponges are all soaked. Therefore, I am unable to attempt any other fixes at this time. I understand I need to replace the sponges and clean all the ink from my printer prior to attempting to print again.

    I appreciate you responding.

    Thank You.

    I have exactly the same problem described by Peggy JD.
    Began without warning.  Reinstalling driver, different cables,
    made no difference.


    Has anyone come up with a fix?


    Thanks.

    I've got the same problem as above. My printer will print perfectly fine when printing text documents, or if I set the printing preferences to gray scale, but if I try to print anything with any color at all I get a page filled with bands of colored ink layered over themselves. I've tried changing ink cartridges and all the cleaning I can think of, but nothing changes. Unlike the above poster though, my cartridges are not leaking in any way, and there is no ink covering any part of the inside of the printer...

Can you make it so you can print black and white when the colors run out? i know i've done it with other printers before but can not find the option on the epson c88 properties.


Dear friend,
In other make like HP it'll print without colour cartridges.But in this model Epson there is no possibilities of printing without a single cartridge.You may reset the cartridge and use it for printing.But reset process only reset chips.

Epson Stylus C88 - New Epson Factory ink cartridges. Nothing prints, although printer goes through the motions of printing. What could be wrong? Ink levels are fine.


You should run a nozzle check to verify if the heads are printing all the inks correctly. If the pattern is incomplete you need to run head cleanings.

Epson Stylus C88 no longer will print colors


you mean it goes intothe motion of printing and the paper comes out blank ?
you already changed the cartridges and performed print head cleaning. it is having a hardware failure and it needs service. (get a new one instead)(contact the manufacturers customer service and ask for the loyalty program - discounted price)
sad to say but theres no fix-it-yourself for that issue. (you can verify it with the manufacturers tech support)

Epson Stylus CX5400 prints bands of color


directly hooking the printer to mac and windows computer are you getting bandings still? interesting issue... we will isolate it first by trying to hook printer directly to both computer, if its printing fine when directly connected, then there is something on the application or communication process. try printing a different document using same application when on the network and try printing from different application as well. update me afterwards..

C88 printing in grey instead of the color


In the Print dialog, go to 'Properties.' Screw around in there for a bit.
