Hello, have you tried a self-test print? which is one initiated at the printer, NOT through the computer. If you don't know how to perform one, try pasting the link below into your web browser and having a look at the info from the Epso website. http://www.epson.co.uk/Printers-and-All-In-Ones/Inkjet/Epson-Stylus-Photo-R1800/Drivers-Support?target=article&extn=.html&articleId=1365
If you can prove the printer self-test works, then your problem's maybe on the computer side of things; maybe even a driver. If the printer self-test (NOT to be confused with the Windows self-test) DOESN'T work, then take a look at the faq's on the Epson website under 'drivers and support' as below. http://www.epson.co.uk/Printers-and-All-In-Ones/Inkjet/Epson-Stylus-Photo-R1800/Drivers-Support
Check for obstructions (ie tiny pieces of paper and other foreign objects)
Clear the obstructions.
press the paper button
Turn it off then do the self test and check if the printer will printer without using computer
self test (press and hold the paper button and press and release the power button, if you can see the green light is flashing release your hold on the paper button. By the way make sure there is paper on the printer)
If it prints good then you need to check the settings on your computer.
If your printer documentation includes any troubleshooting
information, perform those troubleshooting steps. If possible, perform a self-test on the printer. These
"self-diagnostic" tools can often resolve or diagnose basic issues with your
hardware. also: -click start, point to setting and then click on printers - right click on the printer that you want to check and then properties - verify that all of your printer properties are configures as recommented by your printer manufacturer. to do so, view the documentation included with you printer -if needed go to control panel and then to printers/cameras and try to set up your printer through there, you may need to update drivers.
The TM-T88IV printer is a thermal printer and does not have ink or a ribbon.
If the printer is not printing you may have the wrong type of paper in the printer. You must have thermal paper in order for the printer to work. Paper for a dot matrix printer will not work in this printer.
The printer has a self-test that you can perform by turning the printer off, holding down the Feed button and turning the printer on. A test strip will print. Press the Feed button again to print a longer test strip.
