If you have used a compatible cart, did you remove the tape from the vent hole?

If you have a genuine cart and feel sure the cart is not faulty them read my previous posts on intensive head cleaning.

If the head cleaning has little or no effect then you may need this following rescue kit to resolve a know problem with many of the CX range:

Can you make it so you can print black and white when the colors run out? i know i've done it with other printers before but can not find the option on the epson c88 properties.


Dear friend,
In other make like HP it'll print without colour cartridges.But in this model Epson there is no possibilities of printing without a single cartridge.You may reset the cartridge and use it for printing.But reset process only reset chips.

I've just replaced the black ink cartridge for my Epson Stylus TX100, ink level is ok as the indicator shows. But i get blank prints for black, other colors are fine. What's wrong with the black ink...


There is nothing wrong with the black ink. Just run the head cleaning for better printing.

1. Go to printer and faxes
2. Right click your printer ( Epson Stylus Multifunction Printer/ Copier/ Scanner InkJet)
3. Click printing preferences
4. Click Maintenance Tab
5. Click Head Cleaning
6. Run head cleaning for 5 times then try printing.

My blue ink is completely out, but i only have to print in black which is full, can i still print? i keep getting error messages.


The printer will keep telling you that the ink is out in the blue cartridge, but on most models this can be ignored/cancelled from the warning box you see and you may then be able to continue printing still in shades of black instead (unfortunately I don't have that same printer model with me at the moment - I have all the other models around in my work room).
If your printer does allow you to still use it despite running out of one colour then here is what to do to still be able to print (assuming your using Windows XP - it's about the same for most operating systems) :-
From the START menu, go to Printers & Faxes. Right-click on the C88 printer shown there, and select Printing Preferences. A dialogue box will show basic settings of your printer, click on the ADVANCED button usually at the bottom-right. On the bottom-left you should now see a selector for BLACK INK ONLY - make sure that is ticked, then click APPLY, then OK. The printer may now use just black to create various shades of grey instead of colours.
(this applies to all EPSON printers, and many others too when ran in Windows XP. Vista & Windows 7 may do it a slightly different way).

The print quality was poor, not all lines printed perfectly, every 6th line was ****. i changed the print cartridge even though it was half full, not it doesnt' print black at all


Printer heads are more than likely dirty. Either use the epson software that came with the priner or right click the printer in the printer section of your PC and locate a head cleaning procedure and run it a few times.

If all else fails, they do sell long Q-tips in PC shops that will allow you to reach in and manually clean the head.

Previous hardened ink will act like a glue covering the heads and do this.

Epson also used to sell a paper product that ran through and removed dust and debris.

At any rate, it needs to be cleaned and I can't pinpoint which way, but that's it.

Epson stylus C88 won t print color ink black is


If you have carried out 4 to 5 head cleans, waited about 8 hours and done another 3 or head cleans doing nozzle checks after each clean (as recommended by the manual) and there is still no improvement then you will need a third party head cleaning solution such as this one:

Other makes & brands are available just google "inkjet head cleaning solution" Hope this helps.

Extra horizontal lines on my document.


Have a real good cleanup of the ink that was (presumably) leaking from the old black cartridge. Remove the cartridges from the cartridge carrier and use kitchen paper towel to soak up any ink in the bottom. Give the cartridge outlet holes a dab on the towel as well. Replace the cartridges promptly.

Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves, pull the power cord out of the back. You should now be able to (carefully) move the print head by hand. Place a layer of paper towel on the printer track, and move the print head across it to mop up any surplus ink. Move the print head across to the left out of the way and use kitchen towel to mop up surplus ink in the Print Head parking area.

Now turn the printer on and carry out a cleaning cycle (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select clean). Now run a nozzle check (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select nozzle check). Are there any extra black lines in evidence now? If so, try another 1 or 2 cleaning cycles and nozzle check. Black lines gone now?

If you still have the black lines, come back with a new comment.

If this information is useful to you, please rate it.

Black ink


Please try the following to resolved the issue:

Run a series of head cleaning
1. Make sure the printer is turned on but not printing. Make sure there are no error lights or messages appearing in the LCD.
NOTE: You cannot clean the print head if the any of the cartridges are expended. Replace the appropriate ink cartridge before proceeding.
2. Load letter size paper.
3. Click on START, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTER & FAXES then right click on CX3200 printer Icon then select printing preferences
4. Click on the UTILITY or MAINTENANCE tab, then click on HEAD CLEANING.
5. Follow the instructions on the screen to clean the printhead. Cleaning takes about 30 seconds, during which time the printer makes some noise and the power light flashes. Never turn off the printer while the power light is flashing, unless the printer has not moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.
6. When the power light stops flashing click PRINT NOZZLE CHECK PATTERN and then click NEXT.
7. If the nozzle check pattern has no gaps in its lines, click FINISH. If the pattern has any gaps, click CLEAN to clean the printhead again.
8. If the situation continues after three cleaning cycles and nozzle checks, replace one of the affected ink cartridge(s).
9. Once the cartridge(s) has been replaced, please follow steps one through seven up to three times.
If the nozzle check still has gaps after you have run at least 3 consecutive cleaning cycles and replaced the affected ink cartridge(s) with genuine Epson inks, your printer will require service.
