The chip that is located on the cartridge has to be reset also. You can take it to a ink cartridge replacement store. They will reset the chip when they refill the ink, however, Epson doesn't recommend this of course. It is cheaper this way.

I've replaced the black ink cartridge on my Epson C86, ran head cleaning and I still get gaps in the test mode. IS there another cleaning i an run?


You can take a soft cloth with alcohol, and clean the copper print heads on the inside of the printer, and see if that helps. You can also dab the cartridge cleaner on the cloth, to see if that helps the ink flow. Other than that, it could be a loose ribbon connector inside the printer that's giving you problems. Try to print a document or picture and see how it comes out. The cartridge may just needs some priming.
Hope this helps, and good luck to you.

Epson Stylus C86 smearing


Your printer has ink build up inside it. This comes from cleaning cartridges and builds-up steadily over time. Remove top cover. Wet a cotton swab with isopropyl alcohol (available at drug stores) and clean the inside. use a cotton bud where the swab gets entangled.

On Epson C86 only the black and blue will print, even after clean


Remove the cartridges and check to see if the ink supply port [on the bottom] are pierced. If they are then the cartridges are old, empty, dried out or faulty. Get a CISS for your printer. It will save you TONS of MONEY, never change a cartridge again and it will pay for itself in a month.

Epson stylus C86 will not print clearly in black


No doubt this is the result of some clogged print nozzles in the print head.

I have a C86 myself, and have ignored it for about 3 years. There were full cartridges in it, and now they are full of sludge instead of inks. The print head itself is probably full of solid ink (dyes, actually) too.

I love this inexpensive, easy-to-use printer. It is quick, quiet and inexpensive to run, and I have no desire to purchase a replacement.

Go to Ebay, look for the Dr.EpSun Majic Inkjet Flush Store (link should work)and locate the flush for this printer - with shipping about $25 US.

They claim a 100% Money-Back Guarantee if it doesn't work. I'm going to buy a kit myself right now, hope it works - I do miss this printer PLUS it works on MS VISTA with no added drivers!

epson.com, actually you can print using black ink only, but you have to reset the color ink for it to register as full. :) or you can freeze the ink counter using the ssc service utility before the other ink rans out. :)

Printer not printing


I hate Epson. Had problems with Stylus C82 and now my replacement Stylus C86 has given me nothing but trouble.
I've just replaced all four ink cartridges and now when I print I'm only getting blank pages. I uninstalled, reinstalled, and nothing is working. I even called Epson, twice, only to be routed to the Phillipines where neither person was very helpful, in fact, had a hard time understanding their English. So this is what I;m going to do. I'm taking this bloody Stylus C86 outside and smash it with a hammer..then I'm going to buy a HR Printer...and if anybody from Epson reads this...good luck...your products SUCK!!
