My Stylus C84 was great at 1st. Then it started printing blank pages. The print nozzles get clogged & the printer is basically shot.
Another really annoying problem, is won't perform the head cleaning procedure when color cartridges are empty, even tho the black is full. Cleaning the heads used up all of my color ink, without fixing the problem.
I'm left with lots of black ink, but I'm stuck with a printer that won't do anything.
Customer service call was OK. The gal was friendly &... (read more)

This printer uses a lot of expensive ink, and it has variable quality, despite good maintenance. It has now stopped printing altogether for no apparent reason. It is easy to install, but that's about it. (read more)

I had a Epson C84 and it worked fine for about one year and then everything went wrong. It seems to just lose all of its print quality and barely prints at all. This happens even after you change all of the printer cartridges. Now I have a printer that is for useless and several brand new cartridges that are useless. On top of this my previous printer was an Epson C64 which did the exact same thing. I had read that the little hose(s) that go from the ink to whatever separate and cause this... (read more)

After 12 months with the Epson C84 inkjet printer... I give up. The first lot of cartridges worked well, and since then, despite paying for Epson cartridges, it has never worked right. I have used up a whole set of cartridges, and have not had a single readable print out of it. It now just sits there flashing it's red lights at me.
Does anybody want a very expensive, bulky pair of flashing red LED's? Cheap and only 12 months old? (read more)

My theory is the only way Epson C84 inkjets are worth it is to buy them cheap on the internet and toss them after the ink runs out to get back at these companies that make this rubbish. I know plenty of people who do.
Anybody want to buy $150 in have used ink cartriges these three printers left orphaned?
Buy a good laser printer, they last 10 years. (read more)

I originally bought my Epson C84 in December, 2003. This unit failed (print line had blank and uneven printing) in August, 2004. Epson sent me a rebuilt unit on 8/12/04 which failed in a few days, another unit on 8/19/04 which was dead on arrival and another unit on 8/21/04 which failed (same problem) 0n 7/29/05. According to Epson the warranty dates to the original purchase date so I am out of luck! I'll never buy another Epson printer. (read more)

I've owned this Epson C84 printer for over a year and I've spent the last six months just trying to get it to print again. I've probably spent more money on Kinko's than I would have replacing the plastic paperweight that's currently taking up my desk space. Today was the last straw. I've been running cleaning cycles on it most of the day, have emptied a whole new set of cartridges on it and it still won't work. Several help site's I've been to have users who have experienced exactly the... (read more)
