Printer does not work after sitting for a month


This is the worst printer I have owned. I have purchased two one for my computer and one for another member of my family. They have both stopped printing. No help from Epson either.

Product Specifications

The Epson Stylus C84N has been designed to meet all the print needs of home, home office, and small office users, where the most commonly used media is plain or recycled paper. The Epson's second generation DURABrite inks, which continue to provide resistance to water, are smudge proof, and fade resistant for up to 80 years. The ink offers laser sharp text and vibrant color reproduction on plain paper, resulting in the Stylus C84N becoming an all-round document and photo printing solution. The EPSON Stylus C84N has been designed for the small and home office where running costs are very important; the printer has separate ink cartridges, and the user has the choice to use standard or high capacity ink cartridges. As well as the new DURABrite inks resulting in better print quality, especially when printing photographs, other photographic features include the ability to print border-free prints up to A4.
