    I cleaned with a Q-tip and ammonia went through a head cleaning and the ink still will not print on the paper! I'm ready to throw this thing out the window. It worked fine one day and the next it stopped printing on the paper. I have new cartridges and it just stopped. And I do print almost everyday so the ink is not dried out!

Once I followed the above instructions to move print head assembly out of the way, ( don't be shy, BTW, it takes a certain amount of force to move it), I found that scraps of paper from a paper jam were bunched up underneath the print heads, soaked in expensive ink.  I removed these (suggest tweezers) and  cleaned it up a bit with ammonia and Q tips and voila - it works.   whew

I don't know if this will help but your problem sounds like one I had with a C82 model. On the right side of the printer below where the print head rests is a small plastic suction tube. This tube can become disconnected and will prevent the printer from printing. Check to see if this is your problem. In the picture the red circle shows where the tube connects and the yellow shows the tube.

C84 stylus - put new cartridges in and it doesn't print full text or all color


Did you use Original Epson Cartridge? I have learned from experience, that Epson does not like generic ink. You must use Epson Genuine Cartridges. Hopefully, you haven't screwed up the printer, like I did. I did try cleaning the heads and doing everything possible. Use 2 cartridges of ech set, for cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. ......But Nothing.
Had to go out and purchase a new printer.;
Good Luck :0(

Problem for Epson Stylus C84 InkJet Printer
Re: C84 I'm using generic ink, but the red
By mclamemo on Nov 12, 2009 re: C84 I'm using generic ink, but the red doesn't work at all. I've done all the printer cleaning programs and swabbed inside the printer with alcohol, and re-inserted the cartridge multiple times. it still doesn't print at all.

Also now even the black every few lines prints the top half of the line or the bottom half of the line, or its smeared, etc...

Help!

My epson stylus c84 prints, but there's no ink on the paper


This might sound stupid, but did you remove the plastic film that covers the head?
Try this, if still nothing happens, go through your printer settings and run a "Cleaning" cycle on it.

Epson c84 printer not printing after installing new ink cartidges


Hi, Linda
You may buy cartriges of different producers.
Depending on producer on them can be or be not special yellow detachable labels.
These are an yellow labels must be removed from them. Then put cartridges back. And try to clean head 4-5 times. And check nozzle test.
Good luck.

Not printing


If you've just bought a C84 today then you've been sold a second (or even third) hand unit which is clogged solid.

To resolve this you're going to need to clean the printheads which is something I've described here

It's a different printer but the same process applies.

Hope that helps.

Won't print unless all ink cartridges have ink.


Try changing it in the properties section under device settings
or go to color management if you have it and change the setting to black only,.

Epson Stylus C84


Sorry but It uses Durabrite ink which tends to turn into hard gel if not printed at least once a week. Its less painful and expensive to just throw the printer out and buy a new one. I recommend the canon PIXMA ip3500. It lets you remove the printhead for cleaning unlike the Epson. If you want to try your luck at unclogging the printer heres a link to a unclogging kit but be warned that results are not guaranteed!

The durabrite inks that EPSON invented is brilliant when you print pictures but it tends to harden very easily

Thanks for reading!

BIG PROBLEM


If any of the ink cartridges are needing to be replaced, the Epson C84 will not print, you will have to change the cartridge, if you lift up the printer lid the carrier will stop at the empty ink colour.
