C88 print problem

The printer is printing my docs with horizontal bars of yellow, pink and blue. Have tried new cord, re-installing driver, to no avail.

    My C88 is printing red lines across by document.

    I have a Mac PowerPC G4 and each print job prints solid colored bands when only black text is called for.  I can resolve the issue for a black text document from the print dialog box by selecting printer settings (dropdown default is  selection "copies and pages")  and specifying black for color.


    Otherwise, all printing has the 3 color bars.  Aghh!!!!   I've tried everything...reboot, downloaded the C88 drivers....blah, blah.  All ink levels are good.   ????

Mine did the same. This worked for me: Turn off both the computer and the printer, then unplug the USB or Printer cable from the back of the printer. Wait one mintue, then replug the cable. Hold down all three buttons on the printer for about ten seconds or so, then let go of the power button while continuing to hold down the other two buttons until the machine starts to print. Turn on your computer and print something. It should then be back to normal. It worked for me. Good luck.

My printer will not print in yellow or orange, just print black pink and purple?


Try a hard reboot. Unplug the connections between the computer and the printer (power cord first), wait 10 mins. then plug it back in, other than that you can try uninstalling the printer and do a fresh install. If still a problem, try updating the drivers and op system for the printer.

Why is this EPSON STYLUS C88+ "Dura Brite Ultra" printer printing the wrong colors?


You have a corrupt or incorrect printer driver. Completely remove all references to the current driver from the computer. Un installing is not enough as the registry references remain. Then install the driver(s) again.

Recently replaced all cartridges in C88 with new recently purchased Epson cartridges. Only blue and black ink prints. No red or yellow. Tried cleaning printer heads. Still no red or yellow printing.


You have to go to the properties of the printer and in the maintainance tab do some nozel cleaning and head cleaning.
and check it should be fine
thanks

Are you confident the new cartridges are full and in-date? Can you confirm that the old cartridges were not removed until immediately before the new cartridge was installed. Did you remove the yellow tape from the new cartridges before you installed them? Were the cartridges changed properly such that an ink charging cycle occurred. Have you carried out any head cleaning cycles recently? If not, do it. Then do a nozzle check print. Any improvement? Yes, but not perfect? If so do a couple more head cleans and nozzle checks. If still not perfect, let it rest for 24 hours to disperse air bubbles. Then repeat.

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.

C88 only green and yellow


You are out of black and magenta (tricolor cartridge) ink or ink has dried up.
Try touching the nozzle plate (underneath print cartridge) with a water dampened cloth (not alcohol) for cleaning clogged nozzles (do not rub).
Ultimate remedy : put in contact nozzle plate with hot water for about 5 seconds.
If color still missing your printer need new cartridges.

C88 printing in grey instead of the color


In the Print dialog, go to 'Properties.' Screw around in there for a bit.
