Let's Try first if it can print without using your computer just to check if printer is working fine by itself.
step1
Make sure its not connected to the computer and there is paper loaded on the printer. Turn off printer, press and hold paper button (middle button) then press and release the power button (right button). If you can see a flashing green light release your hold on the paper button.
If it prints by itself good go to step 2 if not check what lights do you see. Solid red light on ink light (tear drop button) means one or more inks is empty. Epson printer will not print if one or more ink is empty.
step2
Check if computer can detect printer goto start/control panel/systems/ click on hardware tab and click on device manager
On device manager click on Universal Serial Bus controllers press on the "+" sign check if there is USB printing support on it
Check if there is a mark (ie. ?, !, red x mark). If none good there is no conflicts. If there is a mark right click on USB printing support and click on update driver and install recommended

Put in new ink cartridge and every other line is 1/2 readable?


Epson's software will let you clean your print head. Inkjets have a problem with drying out and clogging. Access your Epson monitor software and clean the print head.

Epson Stylus C86 won't print


You have to check if the waste pad of the printer is full. If this occurs, you have to call a technician to replace it (or yourself can do , if you are able to). With the waste pad replaced, you can reset the internal counter with this program :

This program can show you if the waste pad is full, or what problem is happening.

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!!
