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 Ink Jet Printer only prints in blue but when i look at ink levels they all almost empty


Replace all ink cartridges and the printer will work again. The level indicators are just indicators and are not precise.

Recently replaced all cartridges in C88 with new recently purchased Epson cartridges. Only blue and black ink prints. No red or yellow. Tried cleaning printer heads. Still no red or yellow printing.


You have to go to the properties of the printer and in the maintainance tab do some nozel cleaning and head cleaning.
and check it should be fine
thanks

Printer not printing


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink or toner cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridges that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks or toner causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead or photo conductors.
If you are using factory new ink or toner cartridges, then please call the manufacturer’s Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

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.

Acts like it's printing, ink is good, but nothing prints out on paper.


Nothing at all? Poor you are. The pump may damage or lost electricity.

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.

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)

There could be something wrong with the connections going to the ink jet cartridge in the printer.

Someone should take a look at it.
