Question about Epson Stylus C84 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Nothing prints on page

Epson c84 printer will not put ink on page. Have replaced all cartridges - Eprons, run all maintenance programs that are part of system but nothing shows up on the page. The cartridges are slowing going down as shown on the printer page. I have used an air can to blow out dust. I bought a cleaner kit from Office Depot but have not used it yet. Do not want to waste $14 not knowing what I am doing!!

I don't know if this will help but your problem sounds like 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.
if not then the tubes are clogged
the only way to make this printer work again is a pump and cap assembly replacement. The Dura Brite inks are waterproof. As such, they dry in the tube forming crystals. As far as I have been able to determine, these crystals perforate the tube causing a loss of suction from the pump assembly.

Furthermore, a large accumulation of ink builds up at the end of the waste ink tube in the waste ink pads. The printer mechanism must be removed from the base, one of the pads must be removed, then you have to remove the ***** of ink from the end of waste ink tube. After that is done a small amount of water should be flushed through the tube to clean it. Make sure you replace the pad before you flush or you will have ink all over the place.

I have seen the tube fall off as the previous post noted. Sometimes but not always, putting that tube in place will solve the problem too. However in most instances it does not because the tube has split.

A little hint; do this repair in an area where you won't mind getting ink around. Also wear some latex gloves to keep ink off your fingers.

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.

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.

Printer does not print


An ink supplier advised turning off the printer for 15 minutes, turn it on and try again. That worked once. Next time he suggested turning off printer, removing all cartridges, waiting 15 minutes, replacing cartridges. I couldn't do this without turning the printer back on and going through the replace cartridges routine. Now the nozzle check routine printed magenta and yellow only. I've run the head cleaner a number of times with no success.  Hope one of these suggestions works for you.

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.
