Question about Epson Stylus D88 InkJet Photo Printer
Hi, i have a problem with a D88+ from Epson, the grayscale print light blue, and the red in photo print magenta. I have tried with new drivers but same results. I use a ciss but also tried with normal cartridge from Epson, still with same result. I used photoshop, coreldraw (with diferent color profile), even microsoft paint :) ,but nothing result yet. Would be great if you have any ideas that can help me. Thanks

Calibrating monitor may help. Are you sure that what you see on the monitor is e.g grey (only K?) or is it mixed. If you print 100m100y is this tomato red? Are you working in RGB or in CMYK?

You have a problem with the printer driver...inappropriate installation of driver can cause such problems.............

Sounds a lot like you have an ink pressure issue and at a guess you are using a CIS (Continuous Ink Supply) system.
I would refer back to the documentation that came with your printer and make sure that you are not overpressuring the printhead with the ink reservoirs set too high or some part of the priming process has been missed.
More information about your printers setup would definitely help ID more specific issues that could be causing this.

It sounds like the waste ink counter needs resetting. Unfortunately the SSC Service utility does not yet support the CX5500 specifically but as there is support for some of the 5000 series it may work. As with any other 3rd party software it is "at your own risk" I've used it many times in the past with no problems. Failing that you will need to take or send it to a service centre for them to reset it.
You can download SSC from here http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml Don't forget to read the help file before you use the utility (you have to install it first).
Hope this helps.

Make sure there is not an airlock in the magenta ink line. This is best achieved by fitting a syringe to the flow line and sucking through some ink. Also you may be able to use a syringe and needle to inject some in into the cartridge to prime it. You may need to run several cleaning cycles to get the ink through - I had a similar issue with and Epson R300 using CISS and carried out over 10 cleaning cycles to get the yellow ink to flow again. It may also be worth removing the cartridge and leaning the exit area with a cotton bud soaked in isopropyl alcohol as residue can build up in this area. If the problem persists you can fill the cartridge with cartridge cleaning fluid to flush it through and then empty it and reconnect the CISS ink supply. If you disconnect the CISS Supply a good tip is to use a bulldog clip to prevent the ink from siphoning out of the supply line while you are attending to the cartridge.
