Re: epson stylus C86 printer
If you have already have done 3 consecutive head cleaning and nozzle check from the computer, reseated the ink and replaced the inks, you printer already has a hardware issue. The ink delivery system is clogged and needs to be serviced. If your printer is within the 1-year period I would recommend that you contact Epson Tech support for other options otherwise, you would need to get printer repaired by an Epson certified service center.

this is idicative of a waste pad counter overflow, the ssc printer utility can clear the inbuilt counter but if your using your printer a lot it would be a good idea to replace or clean the waste pad, its inside the printer and will bee messy but if your doing lots of prints it will be less messy than if it overflows
Your printer has ink build up inside it. This comes from cleaning cartridges and builds-up steadily over time. Remove top cover. Wet a cotton swab with isopropyl alcohol (available at drug stores) and clean the inside. use a cotton bud where the swab gets entangled.
The chip that is located on the cartridge has to be reset also. You can take it to a ink cartridge replacement store. They will reset the chip when they refill the ink, however, Epson doesn't recommend this of course. It is cheaper this way.
If you have already done head cleaning and nozzle check 3 consecutive times from the computer and has tried reseating all the ink cartridges and it still acts likes its printing but just prints out a blank page chances are your product already has a hardware issue. If you product is still within the 1-year warranty period from date it was purchased, I suggest that you contact Epson tech support for more options otherwise, you would need to get the product repaired by servicer located in your area.

I hate Epson. Had problems with Stylus C82 and now my replacement Stylus C86 has given me nothing but trouble.
I've just replaced all four ink cartridges and now when I print I'm only getting blank pages. I uninstalled, reinstalled, and nothing is working. I even called Epson, twice, only to be routed to the Phillipines where neither person was very helpful, in fact, had a hard time understanding their English. So this is what I;m going to do. I'm taking this bloody Stylus C86 outside and smash it with a hammer..then I'm going to buy a HR Printer...and if anybody from Epson reads this...good luck...your products SUCK!!
