Epson C82 & C84 Printers will not laydown any ink!

Epson C82 & C84 I have not used for 4-6 months. Neither printer will laydown any ink of any color on paper. Both Printers have always used Epson cartridges.

Actions and observations as follows:

The C82 diag showed no Black, Cyan Magenta & Yellow showed 3/4 full.
Install new T0321 Epson Cartrige(black) and run all cleaning and head checks, ect. Printer will not laydown any ink of any color on paper.

The C84 diag shows 1/2 black and Cyan Magenta & Yellow showed 3/4 full. run all cleaning and head checks. Printer will not laydown any ink of any color on paper.

Not a smudge not a drop of ink to the paper!
Anyone have a clue?

Sorry but It uses Durabrite ink which tends to turn into hard gel if not printed at least once a week. Its less painful and expensive to just throw the printer out and buy a new one. I recommend the canon PIXMA ip3500. It lets you remove the printhead for cleaning unlike the Epson. If you want to try your luck at unclogging the printer heres a link to a unclogging kit but be warned that results are not guaranteed!

The C82 in addition to clogging also has a problem where the waste ink hose which is supposed to remove excess ink (so the printer dosent get clogged) gets disconnected and so the printer clogs even more. The C84 had this glitch fixed but alot of good that did!

C84 stylus - put new cartridges in and it doesn't print full text or all color


Did you use Original Epson Cartridge? I have learned from experience, that Epson does not like generic ink. You must use Epson Genuine Cartridges. Hopefully, you haven't screwed up the printer, like I did. I did try cleaning the heads and doing everything possible. Use 2 cartridges of ech set, for cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. ......But Nothing.
Had to go out and purchase a new printer.;
Good Luck :0(

Asker's Testimonial " Thank you. Called Epson also and they didn't say it as directly, but advised real Epson ink too. Hope I didn't kill the printer! Generic ink for sale " - mclamemo

Epson Requires Original Epson Ink.

Epson c84 printer not printing after installing new ink cartidges


Hi, Linda
You may buy cartriges of different producers.
Depending on producer on them can be or be not special yellow detachable labels.
These are an yellow labels must be removed from them. Then put cartridges back. And try to clean head 4-5 times. And check nozzle test.
Good luck.

I don't know if this will help but your problem sounds like one I had with a C82 model. On the right side of the printer below where the print head rests is a small plastic suction tube. This tube can become disconnected and will prevent the printer from printing. Check to see if this is your problem. In the picture the red circle shows where the tube connects and the yellow shows the tube.
