Question about Epson Stylus C88 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Will it ever print again?!

After replacing the black ink cartridge on My Epson Stylus C88 print, the red light remains on and the green light still flashes. The cartridge is installed correctly and the ink cartridge cover clicked on closing. I have tried to print something and nothing happens.

Epson Stylus C88 Ink Jet Printer only prints in blue but when i look at ink levels they all almost empty

Replace all ink cartridges and the printer will work again. The level indicators are just indicators and are not precise.

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

I've replaced the ink cartridges on my mother's Epson Stylus C88 printer and it prints only green. Any suggestions?

Epsons usually give you an option to "clean the heads." Look for any Epson software on the computer, or it might be hidden within the "Properties" of that printer (in Control Panel).

Epson stylus C88 won t print color ink black is

If you have carried out 4 to 5 head cleans, waited about 8 hours and done another 3 or head cleans doing nozzle checks after each clean (as recommended by the manual) and there is still no improvement then you will need a third party head cleaning solution such as this one:

Other makes & brands are available just google "inkjet head cleaning solution" Hope this helps.

Printer will not print

Which of the two red lights is on? If it's the red paper light, it simply thinks it's out of paper. Make sure your stack of paper is properly seated in the Automatic Sheet Feeder. If it is the red ink light, it means that during a print task (printing, head cleaning, ink charging), an empty cartridge was detected. Go through the cartridge replacement procedure as described in your User Manual. If you don't have one, see:

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.
