Epson Stylus C80N Ink Jet Printer

Selected FAQ

Q:
The printer sounds like it is printing, but no ink is on the paper. What's wrong?
A:
The print head nozzles may need cleaning. From the Utility section found in the EPSON printer driver, clean the print heads followed by printing a nozzle check pattern. A head cleaning and nozzle check must be performed as a cycle. After printing a nozzle check, examine the printed pattern. Each staggered horizontal and straight vertical pattern should be complete, with no stripes. If there are stripes, continue with another cycle. Perform up to 3 cycles if necessary. If the nozzle check is not printing completely, and if the head cleanings do not help the nozzle check pattern to print completely, try replacing the ink cartridge. Make sure your ink cartridges are not outdated. They should be replaced six months after installing them in the printer to ensure good quality.
