Print colors are wrong after XP upgrade for Epson Stylus 880

Q: Print colors are wrong after XP upgrade for Epson Stylus 880

Hi! I hope you can help with the following problem.

I recently upgraded to Windows XP from ME last month.

This week I attempted to print some digital photos on my Epson Stylus 880 printer for the first time since the upgrade and found that the colors are totally messed up.

All of the pics print with a definite GREEN tone to them. RED comes out bright YELLOW. I found out this happens when printing anything in any program; not just pictures.

I uninstalled the printer and the print drivers. And then re-installed using the XP drivers from Epson's website.

I have messed around with choosing different color settings with no effect.

The only other program I have installed after the XP upgrade is Adobe Photoshop 7.

This one has me stumped. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

My Epson 960 has 6 cartridges. It set without being used for a couple weeks (it has been longer in the past and worked fine) and now won't print. I used the "clean head" button several times, only 3 of the cartridges will print and they only print about 50% on the "check nozzle" button. What would make all of them dry out at once? A couple of the cartridges were new at the last printing. I have always used official Epson cartridges if that makes any difference.

Thanks for any input.

Sorry for any inconvenience. After posting here, I went to the Epson site and found a troubleshooting area for my printer. I had printed an envelope a few days ago and forgot to set the lever back to paper and this seemed to be causing my problem.

Thanks anyway.

last night, I posted a new post, same tittle, and 24 hours later, it is not here. So here's a repost:
Everytime I reinstall a black ink cartridge, it does not work. After fiddling with the utility, ie.
the head cleaner, adjust test page etc... Seems like the head is not reaching down to the paper. The thing is after performing all the cleaning and the trouble shooting, the cartridge shows the ink is going down. Now it's at 3/4 ink left without printing a single page. Windows does see the printer and send the print job to it. The printer in turn goes through the motion, but the paper comes out blank.
I am running Windows XP. Can anyone please help with this matter

Thanks in advance for any response.

Hi dear knowledgeable folks,

Well, here's what has happened. A few days ago, my printer suddenly wouldn't print and it, as well as my computer then froze up. I had to reboot in Safe Mode. I have an eMachine and run Windows 98. Anyway, I have run and rerun the printer utilities, head cleaning, etc. The test program will print out fine, (in color)but that's all. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the printer, including the driver. Now, when I try to print something, it shows that the printer is doing so, but the page comes out completely white. I am a technically challenged grandmother and have no idea what to do next. This printer has been perfect up until now. I've had it since January, 2000 with pretty light usage.

If anybody has any ideas, I'll surely appreciate them.

Thank you a bunch in advance.

Shirley
 

A:Epson Stylus Color 740 won't print

My friend had a problem where it appeared to be printing (also an Epson) and a blank paper came out.
The solution for him was to change the field where you tell it what kind of paper you are printing on. We moved down the list of choices and it started to put ink on the paper.

The setting that always worked fine before just stopped working.

I hope something this simple also solves your problem

I buy after MARKET inks instead of Epson as it is too expensive. In the past Epson would come up with message they didn't recognize the ink as theirs BUT said I could click and use what I had anyway.

Now it doesn't have that option and the red light flashes and won't let me print with my after MARKET inks I've been using for years.

Does anyone know how I can correct this and use the ink I have?
 

A:Epson Stylus CX3810 won't print

I have read that some printers might be programed to start having problems after it reaches its printing limits set by the factory. You might want to see if you can find a disc on ebay with the drivers to reset your printer.
Maybe the cartridges might be defective too.

I am trying to set up an Epson Stylus C88+ printer with a new laptop that has Windows 8.1 (64-bit). The Epson site said that if the install doesn't happen automatically, then do the manual install. I had to do the manual install. The install seemed to go well. I chose to not have it on a network and chose the generic Epson Stylus C88 driver. What I found strange was that the port selection section did not have USB, only things like LPT1. The printer is hooked up via one of the USB ports. I chose LPT1.

After adding the printer, the Devices and Printers page under control panel shows the printer installed and has set it as a default. When I try to print a test page, an error occurs (no real info) and the document is stuck in the printer queue which I clear. I uninstalled and reinstalled the printer but am having the same results. I cycled power on the laptop. I unhooked the printer from the computer and did a test page on the printer as a stand alone device (hold certain buttons on power up) and that test page looks fine. I'm not sure what to do next. Thanks for any help.
 

A:Can't get Epson Stylus C88+ to print under Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Try manually installing using the driver from the Epson website.

Also, LPT1 is the common designation for a parallel port. So that's why it's not printing.

My Epson Stylus color 740 suddenly stopped printing even though it goes thru the motions of printing and even of jet cleaning, but no image. The cartridges are nearly full.
I went thru the Windows XP pro troubleshooting prompts for printer and for usb ports.to no avail. control panel hardware and system listing shows "normal operation".
I deleted the printer out of hardware and let XP detect it and re-install driver (as recommended by epson).
No results.
Is there a reset within the printer to turn on the jet command? Or is there some command that can be sent to the printer to activate the jets? The printer displays no blinking lights.
I have not gotten a response from Epson so here I am.
Thanks for any help.

It may end being just a defective cartridge, however you could try these things:
1) Remove cartridge inspect contacts for residue from covering material. Take Swab (q-tip) and alcohol clean contacts thoroughly.
2) Clean contacts on printer same way.
3) Make sure dust and/or coagulated ink is not present on ink nozzles.
4) Reseat cartridge and run printer utility to clean nozzles and run calibration/test page.
If all the above fails return the cartridge as defective and get a new Epson cartridge for your printer.

Every time I change the black ink cartridge, the thing will not print. It's like the printer head is not touching the paper at all. It does go through the motion but prints blank. Or if I finally get it to work, It shows the brand new cartridge to be half empty and runs out after a few prints. But the color cartridges remain normal. This thing cost me $30 a pop as the black ink cost more than the color. I run the utility program: clean head, adjust etc... Does not work. On line support is very dopey. you click on Epson C64, it shows drivers for all kind of printers but not this one.
Does anyone know what's going on?
Thanks in advance for your replies.

A:Epson Stylus Error, Can't Print?

Go here and download this utility for Epson Printers.
http://www.softpedia.com/public/cat/13/7/13-7-159.shtml

I have used this on a couple of Epson printers. On one occasion I had an Epson C20UX which stopped working shortly after I replaced the cartridges, Epson Cartridges not compatible. The printer was left in the box for almost a year until I came across this utility. I just started the program and reset everything I could.
One thing I noticed about Epson is that inside there is a small pad which soaks up any ink left in the nozzles after printing. Once this pad soaks up a certain amount of ink the printer stops working. It seems Epson don't tell anyone this so they will either have to leave it in to get fixed or they will buy a new printer.
Try it and see if it helps.

I run Windows 7 (64 bit) on an ASUS laptop and have recently bought (2nd hand) an Epson Stylus D 78 for simple printing needs. . I have downloaded the appropriate drive (Windows 7 64 bit) from the EPSON web site but while the printer chugs away and goes through the full motions of printing, the pages come out completely blank . I have cleaned the heads a number of times but am still unable to get it to print even a checking pattern . Since purchase I have inserted a new black ink cartridge ( the other colours seem OK ) so would expect that some impression would appear .
Does anyone have any thoughts as to whether it is a driver issue or whether I should consider physically checking the printer head to ensure that the nozzles are not blocked.
 

A:EPSON Stylus D 78 printer wont print

i suspect the other colours maynot be OK
But you should be able to do a clean and a head alignment from the printer - see if that prints out correctly

did you see the printer working before you purchased

also a lot of printers and particularly epsom, do often use the colour to print out just black text -

Re: OS Windows 98/SE

Hi Tech Guys,
I've called tech support and all they offer is run "Head Cleaning" in utilities for my printer. At first it worked but now the more I run the head cleaning the less its printing. I've checked the level of ink remaining as well. Everythings full.
I've bought a "Cartridge & Printhead Cleaner" but what part is the print heads in the following statement: "Allow print heads to soak in the Cartridge & Printhead Cleaner to refresh the print nozzles and help restore print quality"?
At one point it states to fill syringe with 2 ml. of the cleaner and squirt the print head over the sink....I'm thinking this is not something you can do with the printer itself put the ink cartridge and if deductive reasoning prevails I'm also thinking its the part that the ink comes out of, at the bottom.
Help me for please...

Could you have maybe not inserted the cartridge correctly or securely so that you printer can recognize its there. Also, double check to make sure your cartridge is the right number to be compatible with your printer.

And how do i use the quiet mode in the fastest speed or is that mode for next to fastest ? Amazing how noisy the fastest speed very shocking can anything be done to get it quiet ! ? - thanks . .
 

A:Epson Stylus NX 400

This is a lesson that the people who are making printers are in the money business and selling printers is just a means to that end. I, too, have an Epson, a Stylus Color 960. You cannot print black unless all colors are sufficiently full to print full color, whether you need color or not.

I contacted Epson years ago about this and that was their answer.

Quiet mode has always been slower on all the printers I've seen.

Hello. I just installed XP 64-bit and to my frustration there are no drivers for my printer. I am considering doing a Vista 64-Bit install, but I am afraid that I may run into the same problem. Epson's site says the drivers are "In-Box" which they say means, and I quote:

"Drivers are included with Windows Vista. Just connect your Epson product to your computer and follow the on-screen instructions that Windows Vista displays to guide you through driver installation."

But Vista site has a question mark as to whether it is compatible. Can someone please advise if my printer is compatible and if Vista 64 has drivers. Also if so how do I install correctly. TIA.

A:Epson Stylus Photo 825

Unfortunately they do not state whether it'll have 64-bit support or not. And looking under the driver downloads sections shows no support for Vista. - Epson Stylus Photo 825, Drivers & Downloads - Technical Support - Epson America, Inc.

You'll have to use the CD as stated here - Epson America, Inc. - Support - Highlights. It "might" have 64-bit drivers??? Your other choice is to give Epson's tech support a call.

The fact that you have issues under XP x64, and the Vista compatibility chart lists a question mark lends creedence that your printer is probably not supported under Vista x64. But...like I said before, you can always try.

Do take note that even though there is a question mark under Vista 32, Epson states that the drivers are on the disk, so...??? Windows Vista Compatibility Epson Stylus PHOTO 825

Hi

Just tried to install the drivers for the Epson Stylus C62 printer on a Win 98 machine and everything has gone crazy!!!

There is both a Centronics port and a USB prot on the printer. We followed the manufacturers installation instructions but no joy. Strange results indeed - when attempting to print the google home page, justthe top half of the google logo was printed, then on another sheet, the bottom 10% of the google page was printed.

We tried several installations but didn't manage to get anywhere. So, we then tried to revert back to the HP printer which worked fine before the Epson Stylus installation. Now we seem to be getting the same results with this printer as with the Epson!!

Has anyone experienced this type of error using this printer on '98 before ....

Thanks ....

A:Epson Stylus C62 - any problems ???

Hi,

I don't know if this will apply to your situation.
I use epson printer and it worked fine. At some point, however, it started print my photos like your printer does. Into two pages.

I searched many sites and forum for the fix, but no luck.
Then Epson tech came up with this and fixed the problem.

What I did was, Opened up device manager and chose printer port, and then property. Update Driver from the driver tab, next, "display a list...", next, show all hardware, highlite (standard port type) on the left and "Printer Port" on the right.
Followed the instruction and the problem was gone.

I asked the Epson Tech why but he couldn't explain.

I hope this will work for you.

Hi
I have been happily using this machine for some years with no problems but yesterday I tried to print a CD label and it failed to work.
The ink and paper feed lights are both flashing red and the "On" light is not lit. The status monitor reports "General fault" The notes and instructions that came with the machine are not very helpful.
When switched on the machine goes through its usual actions of checking the ink flow and the carriage moves across the platen then the warning lights come on.
Searching on the net I found one article which stated the printer had an internal counter which made the machine inoperable when a certain number of sheets had been printed, requiring servicing and resetting of the counter by an Epsom repair shop. The writer of the article also offered for sale a CD with software to reset the counter. Could this have anything to do do with with this?
Any suggestions or help would be gratefully received.

I have a real problem. I have an Epson colour stylus 680 that was printing, connected via USB to a laptop using vista. I disconnected the USB cable for a while and now it refuses to print anything. Odd facts:
- The printer is installed again every time I connect the cable, (annoying)
- The PC detects the cable automatically, but still it doesn't print
- The print command is getting sent through, but isn't actually printing
- I have changed the ports various times and deleted printers, reinstalled them, and rebooted, etc, to no avail.

I have called Epson, who said it's better I talk to Microsoft, who then directed me to PCworld/Advent, and still I can't get the thing to work. Last time, the guy at Epson, by trial and error, I think, managed to get it working, but heaven knows how. Any help, however it comes, is extremely welcome. Thankyou

A:Epson stylus 680 not printing

Things I would try... not 100% bullet proof.

Uninstall the printer drivers and software, making sure no remnants still exists on your C:\ drive or Registry. Epson should have a Driver Sweeper or Uninstaller.

Download latest Vista x32 or x64 drivers for it... NO, Not the ones that came with the CD.

Go to Device Manager and Uninstall all USB Devices, making sure the Mouse or pointing device (if USB) is the last one you uninstall... it may take you a few tries. Once that is down, either reboot or "Scan for Hardware Changes" within the Device Manager options in Action (This is from XP, Vista may be different).

If nothing new exists as far as vista drivers, load the CD but do not use autoplay, instead, go to Explore and right click on the executable and "Run as Administrator" to see if that helps the issue.

Good Luck

A:Epson Stylus C82- printer help?!

I just recently found out from Epson that even if your only printing with black ink, the color cartridge is still being used to "build" each character that's printed. So if you just replaced the black ink cartridge, thinking the color cartridge is full.. replace that one also. The printer will not work if the color cartridge is empty... or the printer thinks it's empty. If you did replace both cartridges, then obviously one of them is bad... the printer still sees one of them, or both, as empty.

Try another USB-port. See if you have both USB 1.1 and USB 2.0.
If you use a hub, put the cable directly in the PC, it might not get enough 'juice'.

So basicly I have a printer at home that is conected to a desktop and enabled the printer to share over my network. The computer that its connected to is currently up to date with all the drivers. When I want to print form my laptop it prints gibberish. The problem and the only thing I dont understand is when I download the drivers for the printers on my laptop, The Epson config comes up and asks me to update. Why do i have to update since the driver is already up to date on my desktop? Also if I want to update the drivers on my laptop, I have to manually choose the port, which port do I choose? USB0001 is already taken from the computer downstairs but keep in mind im doing this over my network on my laptop. so which port do I choose?

Both computers running Win7 Ult x64

My Epson Stylus Color 600 had a user friendly printer option menu with Win 98. Now, with XP and a new driver, I have this useless "dumb downed" printer menu from which I cannot get the printer to print one decent photo. And believe me, I've tried all their "simple" option settings. So,....AAAARRRGGGHHHHH!!!!! ....I'm a wee bit frustrated. Anyone out there know what I can do and how I can get a user friendly printer options window again??? [They "did" say that XP was a better OS, didn't they??]

I was using XP earlier but got a laptop with windows 8,my printer is a EPSON STYLUS C45 and the drivers that have been released for it is only up to XP ,is there anything i could do?

A:No drivers for my epson stylus c45?

Win8 doesn't include drivers that will support it?

There are entries at the Microsoft Update Catalog that are supposed to be compatible:

Microsoft Update Catalog

but they are from 2006 (before Vista was released).

I just purchased a epson stylus 780 printer. I have tried everything I can think of but I can't get it to print. My computer gives to a message that says - there was an error writing to LPT1 for the printer Epson Stylus Photo 780, there was a problem printing to he port.
I have done just like the directions say to do, over and over.
My computer is a HP Pavilion 8290.
Let me know if you need any other information.
Thanks

Only thing I can think of is enter your bios setup and make sure the printer port is set to bidirectional, ecp, or epp and try it. It maybe a communication problem being that the printer needs two way comm and isn't getting it.

I have purchased a Stylus color 860 that was a non printing unit for a good price. The previous owner stated that he had replaced the printhead per epson and then they told him that he needed to calibrate the printhead and he had no way so he sold it. It will feed and go through all the motions of printing but with no ink output on the paper. No errors noted. I have purchased the service repair manual but it mentions an Adjustment Program and I have found a web site that sells it but it looks like it went down before I could buy it. Anyone have any ideas.

I think you probably bought a boat anchor. Hopefully you didn't pay too much for it.

You might have a read thru the owner's manual.
