Epson Stylus C84 - Service Required

Hello,   This is a printer I was able to luckily get as my work was throwing out.  I believe the ink is dried out, but cannot figure out how to get the ink cartridges out.  When I hooked up to my Macbook it shows up fine.  The printer is actually flashing two red lights (looks like 1 for ink and the other for paper (has picture of paper and trash can).  The red light jumps back and forth between these two.  I thought I would attempt to prink something to see if it would bring me to some troubleshooting, but no such luck.  I just get an "!" in a yellow triangle and when I click on it, it reads "Service Required".  Is this even fixable?  I am no techie so I'm not sure what to do.  thanks a lot in advance!

Epson c84 stylus inkjet lower ink pads installation diagram


You are asking because you got a message like this:
parts inside my printer are reaching their end of service life?Read about it at this link:http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Storesupport/InkPadsForm.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes.
4 options:
1. Reset the printer with the utility above (after realizing that IF the pads are actually near full, which I've only seen once, ink will start overflowing onto your desk sometime in the future (put the printer on a baking pan for safety).
2a. Replace pads yourself (a pain and cost more than the printer is worth) parts drawing and parts are available at:http://www.compassmicro.com/
The rest is disassembly- either the service manual - you might find free (or a YouTube video), but definitely for $ at:http://www.2manuals.com/index.php?cPath=2_39
JUST DON'T TRY DOING THIS WITHOUT some guidance- you will end up at option 3 eventually if you do this you will still need to do # 1 to reset the counter2b. Have service firm do it ( way more than the printer is worth)
3a.If you really "love" that C84, or have a bunch of ink - look on Craigslist or ebay
3b. Buy "refurbished" epson printer with warranty, inks and probably free shipping at:http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/jsp/EsHome.do?BV_UseBVCookie=yes

I haven't used my epson c84 in a long time. only the yellow in appears on paper. what can be done to get it up and running again?


ink in cartridges tends to dry up if it is un used for a long time, if you see that there are no other problems rather than this then an ink replacement is required get a fresh genuine epson cartridge color and black

Printer wont print out in colour The inks are full. The black ink works but not the colour inks, Epson stylus C84


Epson Requires Original Epson Ink.
Colors will not come out as they should, and then the words will print out only either top or bottom.
Good Luck....

Epson C82 & C84 Printers will not laydown any ink!


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!

Epson c84 ink cartrages


Hello Carla, can you manually clean the heads where the ink delivers the printer. Try using the printers own program first then do a manual clean with proper cleaning solution if this will not work.
