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.

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

My blue ink is completely out, but i only have to print in black which is full, can i still print? i keep getting error messages.


The printer will keep telling you that the ink is out in the blue cartridge, but on most models this can be ignored/cancelled from the warning box you see and you may then be able to continue printing still in shades of black instead (unfortunately I don't have that same printer model with me at the moment - I have all the other models around in my work room).
If your printer does allow you to still use it despite running out of one colour then here is what to do to still be able to print (assuming your using Windows XP - it's about the same for most operating systems) :-
From the START menu, go to Printers & Faxes. Right-click on the C88 printer shown there, and select Printing Preferences. A dialogue box will show basic settings of your printer, click on the ADVANCED button usually at the bottom-right. On the bottom-left you should now see a selector for BLACK INK ONLY - make sure that is ticked, then click APPLY, then OK. The printer may now use just black to create various shades of grey instead of colours.
(this applies to all EPSON printers, and many others too when ran in Windows XP. Vista & Windows 7 may do it a slightly different way).

My Epson Stylus C88+ printer won't print


Sounds like there's a problem with the print head. I'd recommend doing a nozzle check, if any colours are missing from the print out then try some head cleans. You can find the nozzle check and head clean options in the maintenance/utility tab of your printer driver.

Epson C88 printer only prints blank pages


See my post about about underhead cleaning. If that makes no difference you will need the countermeasure for the split cap tube. The document about loss of ink on CX series machines is also applicable to C88
