It may be caused by waste ink at bottom plate of head. Print blank pages about 10.

4 colour dots on printout but not 150mm apart


Measure the distance between two of the same coloured dots down the page, if it is just over 150mm then it is caused by scratches on the photoconductor drum (this is the only thing that has a 15.4mm circumference). Try printing a black and white only document, only the black dots should appear. Removing the photoconductor and gently polishing the blue drum with a soft cloth can help if the scratches are not too deep, otherwise a new photoconductor is the only route.

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.

Possible printhead issue.
Please reseat the black cartridge. Let the printer charge like it normally does.
Print a nozzle check pattern. If you see gaps, missing lines or missing colors on the pattern, clean the printhead using the driver. 3 consecutive cleaning cycle is recommended. Compare the nozzle pattern over the last printout. If you see any improvement, you can clean the head numerous times until you get a perfect nozzle check pattern.

Run head cleaning cycles several times by pressing and holding down the ink button. it will make a noise as it attempts to clean the nozzles of your printer.

Epson Stylus C86 Printer Ink Refill


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.
