The P power light is on when the printer is ready to
print. It flashes when the printer is receiving a print
job, charging ink, or cleaning the print head. It also
flashes when the print head moves to the ink
cartridge replacement position.
Don’t remove the green IC chip from the cartridge.
Installing a cartridge without an IC chip can damage the
printer. Also, don’t touch the green IC chip. This can
damage the ink cartridge.
The printer is out of paper. Load paper and then
press the m paper button to resume printing.
Paper has jammed in the printer. Press the m paper
button to eject the jammed paper. If that doesn’t
clear the error, open the printer cover and remove
any paper inside, including torn pieces. Then load a
new stack of paper and press the m paper button to
resume printing.
One of the ink cartridges is low on ink. Follow the
instructions beginning on page 5 to replace the
empty cartridge. If the H ink out light goes on after
you’ve replaced a cartridge, you may have installed
a cartridge your printer can’t use. Check the number
on the ink cartridge package to make sure you’ve
installed the correct cartridge.
Don’t touch this part
If you remove an ink cartridge temporarily, protect the
ink supply port on the bottom of the cartridge from dirt
and dust. Place it in a small box or its original packaging.
One of the ink cartridges is out of ink. Follow the
instructions beginning on page 5 to replace the

6. Press the H ink cartridge replacement button and close the
printer cover.
Installing the Cartridges the First Time
1. Turn on the printer.
2. Lower the printer’s output tray and open the cover.
7. Ink charging takes about 90 seconds. You will see the
P power light flash and hear the printer charging your ink.
Don’t turn off the printer during this process or you’ll waste
ink.
3. Shake each ink cartridge four or five times. Then unwrap
the cartridges.
Never turn off the printer when the Ppower light is
flashing unless the printer hasn’t moved or made any
noise for more than 5 minutes.
Replacing an Ink Cartridge
When the H ink out light is flashing, one of your ink cartridges
is low on ink. When the H ink out light stays on, an ink
cartridge is empty and you need to replace it.
Don’t remove the cartridge labels, or ink may leak.
You cannot print if any of the ink cartridges are empty.
Leave the empty cartridge installed in the printer until
you have obtained a replacement; otherwise the ink
remaining in the print head nozzles may dry out.
4. Wait a moment for the ink cartridge holders to move into
loading position. Then lower each ink cartridge into its
holder. The color of the cartridge label should match the
sticker on the holder.
When an installed ink cartridge is more than six months old,
you may also need to replace it if you notice that your
printouts don’t look as good as they used to. If print quality
doesn’t improve after cleaning and aligning the print head,
you can replace the cartridge even if the H ink out light isn’t
flashing. See page 7 for instructions.

Replacing an Outdated Ink Cartridge
Even if the H ink out light isn’t flashing or on, you may need
to replace an ink cartridge if it’s more than six months old and
print quality declines. If print quality doesn’t improve after
cleaning and aligning the print heads, you can replace the
cartridge(s) causing the problem.
Make sure you have the new ink cartridge(s) before you
continue. Once you start the ink cartridge replacement
procedure, you must complete all the steps in one
session.
Follow these steps to replace ink cartridges before the H ink
out light goes on or begins to flash:
If ink gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly
with soap and water. If ink gets into your eyes,
flush them immediately with water.

Guide) to determine which cartridge(s) needs to be replaced.

Paper Loading Guidelines
Don’t use the cleaning sheets that may be included
with your special media; they may damage the printer.
❏ Always load paper short edge first, even when printing
landscape-oriented pictures.
❏ Always handle sheets by the edges, and don’t touch the
printable surface.
❏ Be sure to load the printable (whiter) side of the paper face
up in the sheet feeder.
❏ You can load paper up to the arrow inside the left edge
guide.
❏ In addition to the Media Type setting, remember to select
the correct Paper Size for your media in the printer
software.
8. Repeat steps 5 through 7 for each cartridge you want to
replace.
❏ If there are protective sheets between the sheets of paper or
film, be sure to remove the protective sheets before printing.
9. Close the printer cover and press the H ink cartridge
replacement button. The printer moves the print head and
begins charging the ink delivery system.
❏ Some special media have a cut corner that you need to
position on the upper right.
❏ You can load the following number of sheets of EPSON
special media:
The P power light flashes and the printer makes noise.
Charging takes about one minute. When it’s finished, the
P power light stops flashing and stays on.
Never turn off the printer while the P power light
is flashing, unless the printer hasn’t moved or
made noise for more than 5 minutes.

When you don’t turn on your printer for a long time, the
print quality can decline. It’s a good idea to turn on your
printer at least once a month to maintain good print
quality.
Testing the Printer
You can run a printer check to determine whether a problem
comes from the printer itself or some other source.
If your paper comes with a cleaning sheet, don’t use it
with your printer; it may jam inside the printer.
1. Make sure both the printer and computer are turned off.
Then disconnect the interface cable from the printer.
1. Make sure the printer is turned on but not printing.
The P power light should be on, but not flashing. Neither
of the other lights should be flashing or on.
2. Make sure letter-size or larger plain paper is loaded in the
printer.
You can’t clean the print head if the H ink out light
is flashing or on. Replace the appropriate ink
cartridge instead.
3. Hold down the m paper button, then press and release the
Ppower button. Continue holding down the m paper
button until the P power light starts to flash, then release
it.
2. Load letter-size paper.
The printer prints one page showing its ROM version
number, ink counter, and a nozzle check pattern. (If the
pattern has white lines, you need to clean the print head; see
below.)
3. If you have an application running, access the printer
settings dialog box.
Or, with Windows, click Start, point to Settings, then
select Printers. Right-click your EPSON Stylus C80
Series printer icon in the Printers window. Then select
Properties (Document Defaults in Windows NT,
Printing Preferences in Windows 2000).
4. Turn off the printer after it prints the check page. Then
reconnect the cable and turn on your printer and computer.
4. Windows: Click the Utility tab.
Macintosh: Click the
If the check page prints, the problem probably lies in your
software settings, interface cable, or computer. Your software
may not be installed correctly.
Utility button.
5. On the Utility menu, click the Head Cleaning button.
6. Follow the instructions on the screen to clean the print
head. Cleaning takes about 30 seconds, during which the
printer makes some noise and the Ppower light flashes.
If the check page doesn’t print, you may have a problem with
your printer. Try the suggestions in the Printer Basics book. If
nothing works, contact your dealer or EPSON.
Never turn off the printer while the Ppower light is
flashing, unless the printer hasn’t moved or made
noise for more than 5 minutes.
Cleaning the Print Head
7. When the Ppower light stops flashing, run a nozzle check
to confirm that the print head nozzles are clean.
If your printouts are unexpectedly light or faint, or dots or
lines are missing from the image, you may need to clean the
print head. This unclogs the nozzles so they can deliver ink
properly. Print head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only if
quality declines.
Make sure paper is loaded in the printer and click Print
nozzle check pattern (Windows) or Confirmation
(Macintosh). Then click Next. The nozzle check pattern
prints (see below for details).
This section explains how to clean the print head using the
Head Cleaning utility. This is the recommended method
when the printer is connected directly to your computer (not
over a network).
8. If the nozzle check pattern has no gaps in its lines, click
Finish.
If the pattern has any gaps, click Clean to clean the print
head again. If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning
three or four times, see the troubleshooting section in the
online Reference Guide.
You can also clean the print head using the printer’s control
panel. See the electronic Reference Guide for detailed
instructions.

6. Select the best line from the first group of lines on the
printout, then enter its number in box #1 on the screen.
Select the line with the cleanest, straightest edges.
Examining the Nozzle Check Pattern
Examine the nozzle check pattern you print. It should look
something like this:
Each staggered horizontal and straight vertical line should be
complete, with no gaps in the dot pattern. If your printout
looks okay, you’re done.
If there are gaps in the lines, clean the print head again.
Select the line in the first pattern with
the cleanest, straightest edges...
gaps in nozzle check pattern
and enter its number in the
corresponding box on screen
Aligning the Print Head
7. Select the best line for each of the other groups of lines, and
enter its number in the appropriate box.
If your printouts contain misaligned vertical lines, you may
need to align the print head. Your printer must be connected
to a local port, not on a network, to use the Print Head
Alignment utility. Follow these steps:
8. Do one of the following:
❏ If the middle line (number 8) in each group is the best,
your print head’s vertical alignment is correct. Click
Next to continue.
1. Make sure the printer is on but not printing, and letter-size
plain paper is loaded.
❏ If you select a number other than 8 for any of the
groups, click Realignment and follow the instructions
on the screen to print another vertical alignment test
page. Repeat steps 6 through 8 until number 8 is the
best line for each of the groups. Then click Next to
continue.
2. If you have an application running, access the printer
settings dialog box.
Or, with Windows, click Start, point to Settings, then
select Printers. Right-click your EPSON Stylus C80
Series printer icon in the Printers window. Select
Properties (Document Defaults in Windows NT,
Printing Preferences in Windows 2000).
9. Follow the instructions on the screen to print a horizontal
alignment test page. You see seven pairs of gray rectangles
on the printout.
3. Windows: Click the Utility tab.
Macintosh: Click the
Utility button.
10. Select the pattern with the least white or black banding
where the rectangles meet and enter the number on the
screen.
4. You see the Utility menu. Click the Print Head Alignment
button.
11. Do one of the following:
5. Follow the instructions on the screen to print a vertical
alignment test page.
❏ If pattern number 4 is the best choice, your print head’s
horizontal alignment is correct. Click Finish.
❏ If you enter any number but 4, click Realignment and
follow the instructions to print another test page.
Repeat steps 10 and 11 until pattern number 4 is the
best choice. Then click Finish.

Cleaning the Printer
Transporting the Printer
To keep your printer working at its best, you should clean it
several times a year. Follow these steps:
If you move your printer some distance, you need to prepare it
for transportation in its original box or one of a similar size.
1. Turn off the printer and wait for the Ppower light to go
out.
To avoid damage, always leave the ink cartridges
installed when transporting the printer.
2. Unplug the power cord and disconnect the printer cable.
Be sure to remove the tape used in step 4 after
installing the printer in its new location.
