Question about Epson Stylus C88 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Prints crooked When printing labels or tables on card stock the printed page does not move through the printer in a straight line. It seems to drift to the left as it moves through the printer. Is there anything that can be done to make the paper move in a straight line?

Most likely to be a page feed problem, look online to clean page feeder rubber rollers.

The paper may not be feeding straight out of the paper tray due to poor stacking of the paper in the paper cassette. try another paper tray or check the paper in the paper tray for folded over papers usually near the bottom. Also try feeding paper from the hand feed tray on the left side. This uses a different paper path.

Prints streaks of lines with fussy & unclear colur


Yes cleaning the LED heads do make a difference. If they are even the slightest bit dirty your output will be affected. However the quality of the prints on these printers are not very good. I have 3 of them and all of the product subpar quality (right out of the box) especially with lighter solid background colors.

On card stock (especially coated card stock) you'll notice shading on the entire page. Again this happened out of the box on all three of my printers. I researched this and read that it was an effect of the LED technology.

Also if you look closely at your prints you'll notice that there are bars in your print. These bars look like there could be something wrong with the LED matrix...

I just installed a magicolor 7450 II and man what a difference. No shading, perfect picture quality, and larger banner printing (12" x 47") Of course the price tag is a lot more ($3k)

Alignment page is printing crooked


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

T5000 Thermal Printer


There are two guides on that machine.

One guide will make sure that the media is locked down and secured. if it isn't it will cause drifting.

There is also another guide around the thermal head before printing that guides the labels before it prints. It either white or or it could be a green color.

are you using the takeup roller on the printer to hold the wax paper? If you are is it straight on the take up roller?
