Question about Epson C64 InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Hardly any print

Since I changed the black cartridge and messed about with print head alignment I can hardly get any print at all (although these could be coincidental to the print failure). The faintest lines of what seem to be random colours is all I can get - whatever I try to print. I've tried everything but now I've run out of ideas. Any suggestions?

Check out my previous solutions on completing the under head cleaning routine. It's soemwhat safer than the syringe on the wick method and is not likely to break the piezo actuator on the head.

Replaced black, would not print black, deep clean times two and still the same problem. What can I do?

Hi, the print head needs to be removed and washed with warm water, Please check the manual for print head removal and re-installation. Also print head alignment must be done on re-installation. The process sounds complicating but is quite simple. Do as if you are replacing a ink cartridge. When the print head is at centre in this process and stops.Switch power off on printer.Remove the cartridges, then remove the print head, wash in warm water carefully, do not use any brush or do hard rubbing, dab dry on paper towel. Replace print head into printer, then cartridges, then switch power on. Do print head alignment, clean print head once and print test pattern. Hope this helps as it has worked for me and is still working. All the best.

sounds like you replaced the black cartridge, do you run the "align print head" on the printer. Sounds like the black is not aligned to the printer input.

Make sure all the protective tape on the Black cartridge has been removed. Also are the inks re-filled? I have seen many re-filled cartridges fail in a similar maner.

Printer doesn't print black

if the cartridge is not flowing...I would NOT soak it in water as that can flow back into the cartridge...remove it and use a q-tip with rubbing alcohol to clean...then you can use toilet paper to rub across it to make sure its flowing...you should get a solid black line...be sure not to touch where the electronics connect to it...if you do, clean it with the alcohol also

Ink cartridge light keeps blinking BEWARE SPAM NUMBER 1-800-532-4187

you need to print only in black if that is all the ink you have, and also you need to remove the color cartridge as it still registers in the printer as able to be used, although it is empty or near so. Did you remove the tape over the print head fron the new ink cartridge? Do a print head alignment, or use the toolbox icon to tell the printer that you just replaced the cartridge. Some HP models chip the ink cartridges so even a refill wont register as a full tank and the printer wont print. chip needs to be reset (difficult) or just replaced with a new cartridge.

Alignment

I've seen this happen with clogged heads as well. If even one color of the color cartridge does not print, it will mess up the alignment page. I'd say take a damp paper towel, wipe the print head off. That the area on the cartridge where ink comes out. after wiping, do a "foot print" test. Gently but firmly, lol press the print head into the damp paper towel. You should see a blue yellow and red foot print. They should be about the size of the print head itself. Do this for the black as well. IF you don't see good foot prints, then take them to your local cartridge world and get them replaced!
