Epson cx6600 printing only magenta even with new cartidges

All cartridges show > 80% and the blank cartridge is bland new. Yet only magenta shows up on the paper. Black and white only come out blank! Tried cleaning the heads a few times. Is there any option other than throwing the thing out the window (with > $50 of ink in it)?

Try remove and shake the inks and reinstall it back in and test to print. If you have tried more than 4x with the head cleaning it might be your ink pads inside the printer is clogged. Is this still under warranty? You have to call Epson they might help you out with it.

Printer doesn't recognize magenta cartridge.


You need a new printer head, point blank- this is for the average person not cost effective because of the price of print head if the particular one is even available, No way to pin point what cause it-maybe the company that made it can- so if you repair it may happen again since we don't know what caused it in the first place- People dont repair printers they replace them, my 200$ printer was now 50$ and hard to find and the print head was 80$ online only...guess what i did. You cant sell it because no one wants is--best bet is trash and buy a new one--Good Luck.

You can't print in black only mode because printer need all cartridges not empty to initialized and working.Don't try to refill this cartridges, it's have a chip and you need to reset it too.Just look in your are for non OEM ink cartridges.Thea are 2-3 times cheaper.

My cx6600 has new ink cartridges and acts like it is printing but the pages come out blank!


Try taking a new cartridge out and shaking it ( with your finger over the hole that the ink comes out) and then put it back in.  Also make sure that the tape that is over some cartridges' printing area has been removed.

Cx6600 printer problem


if you left your printer for two weeks or more without using, the print heads may be stuffiness. In this case (aparently yours cases) you must take your printer to a authorized service, they will can clean (with a proper fluid) or replace the ink heads, if cleaning is not possible.

CX6600 'prints' blank sheets


Hey Drummabil First thing to check is that if you are using compatible cartridges instead of the good stuff, ensure that any tape that needs to be removed from vents is taken off. I have seen many a printer with carts installed still wearing the tape over the vents. If you are using the good stuff, you may be experiencing a known issue with this (and similar) Epson models. You can check out the following file which contains a load of information about rectifying this common problem. The info is all from Epson sources and describes the cause of the problem and goes on to show to resolve it. http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/1594393 It shows you specifically what causes error and how to remedy it. They also include service manuals for the CX5100 CX5200 CX5300 CX5400 CX6300 CX6400 machines to further aid you in rectifying the problem.

Brand New Printer


Hi Teetle, No, it not normal to only get two pages per cartridge. I would try the following before contacting Epson tech support: -Remove the cartridges and clean the contacts on both the printer and cartridge. -Reinsert each cartridge making sure it is seated correctly. -Buy one black cartridge and install. It is possible that the cartridge is defective but since the magenta cartridge is showing low its unlikely. Tech support will want you to try it before they will replace the printer so you?re best off trying it now. If after trying this steps there is no change and if you?ve had it for less than 7 days I would talk to your retail store. Usually they will just trade your defective unit for one in stock. If you have had it longer contact Epson support and explain what it happening and what you?ve done. Make sure you mention you?ve bought a new Epson black cartridge with no change. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
