Question about Epson Stylus C64 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Ink doesn't show up

I have an epson C64 and have just put in new ink cartidges. When I tell it to print, it pulls the paper through and moves back and forth like it is printing, but I get a clean sheet of paper when it's through.

I have epson i was given i have just put new ink in and it prints but with no ink


Have you carried out 2 or 3 head cleaning cycles? If not, do it. Is there ink on paper after this cleaning? If so, but it is streaky, leave the printer for 24 hours and repeat. If not, you must soak the heads for at least 24 hours - use print head cleaning fluid or distilled water NOT TAP WATER. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves, pull the power cord out of the back, or switch it off at the mains. You should now be able to move the print head over to the left by hand out of the way. Now look in the "parking bay" at the right end where the print head parks itself. You will see a small oval rubber cup that covers the print head when it is parked. Use a syringe or dropper to fill the cup with cleaning fluid, then gently push the print head as far into the parking position as it will go. Then leave for at least 24 hours. Then try the cleaning cycles again. If no joy after this, report.

It sounds like the print head is jamming on the parking mechanism (usually because the actuation lever is stuck in the up position). Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves, pull the power cord out of the back, or switch it off at the mains. You should now be able to move the print head over to the left by hand out of the way. Now look in the "parking bay" at the right end where the print head parks itself and see if there is a plastic arm sticking up. If there is, gently pull it towards you and it should spring down. Now turn the printer back on and it should operate normally. If it happens again, repeat the process a few times to see if it clears the problem. Otherwise it means the parking mechanism is gummed up with dried ink and needs a good clean (see below).

Alternatively, if you see that the whole parking mechanism itself has moved up to block the way, this means a spring has come off. To get this back on again requires the printer to be dismantled - as does the cleaning job above!

Should you decide to have a go at cleaning or re-fixing the spring, let me know via a new posted comment so I can provide further assistance.

Epson cx6600 printing only magenta even with new cartidges


Try remove and shake the inks and reinstall it back in and test to print. If you have tried more than 4x with the head cleaning it might be your ink pads inside the printer is clogged. Is this still under warranty? You have to call Epson they might help you out with it.

If you have already done lots of head cleans with no result, and you're SURE you have good ink cartridges properly installed, then you can try soaking the print heads for 24 hours (or more), as follows. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head
parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then try a head clean/nozzle check again. If still nothing, post a new comment detailing what you have done and the results.

Printer will not print


More info needed here. Are any lights on or flashing? Have you tried going through the cartidge instsallation process again (but just taking out and putting back the same cartridges when told to put in new ones)? Are the unrecognised cartridges genuine Epson or compatibles? Have you tried putting genuine Epson cartridges in (even empty ones will do) to see if they are recognised? A response to these question will permit me to give you much more specific help.
