New ink cartridge not working properly

I have an epson cx6600...i installed a new ink cartridge and now the printer is not printing colors properly. all prints look like they are sepia toned. i believe the new cartridge did not charge correctly on installation. i am trying to figure out how to take the full ink cartridge out. there is no obvious option to uninstall full ink cartridges. the printer only allows you to take out empty ones. how do i get full ink cartridges out to put another one in?

If you open the lid of the printer you should have the ink slide to have you take it out.
I would unplug the printer for about 5min and then plug it back in and then it should ask you to redo it again.

Answer. well turn the printer off. then turn it back on after it loads then open the top of it so you can see the ink cartridges, and then hold the color button down it will move in to the little slot just left to where it should be and that is far right. then open and change the ink cartridge or cartridges.

Epson cx6600 won't print in color.


By now you have probably figured out that it isn't going to work again. Unfortunately with all epsons and other printers where the printhead is not on the cartridge if you let them sit for an extended time the ink dys up in the printhead and if 3 or 4 cleanings does not make it work it is not likely to ever work again.. My advise is to buy a printer where there are only 2 cartridges (1 black and 1 tricolor) make sure these have the printhead on the cartridge and then if they dry up in the printhead and can't be cleaned by your local cartridge refiller then the worst that can happen is you have to replace the cartridges and not the whole printer. Alternative to that buy a laser printer where the toner cartridges never dry up.

Epson cx5500 prints only with black cartridge???


Yes it will still print with black provided that your computer still detects the colored cartridge tanks.If you are certain that there is still some ink left on the colored ones, take them one by one and shake them hard as if you are trying to distribute the ink evenly. After that, you need to do a test print to utilize the colored inks.

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.

Changing Cartridges


I inspected the users manual, there it writes:

The steps below to replace an ink cartridge: Caution: Leave the empty cartridge installed until you have obtained a replacement, or the ink remaining in the print head nozzles may dry out. To ensure good results, use genuine Epson ink cartridges and do not refill them. Other products may cause damage to your CX6600 not covered by Epson’s warranty. 1. If an ink cartridge is empty: Look at the LCD screen to see which cartridge is empty, then press the x Color button. If an ink cartridge is low: Press the Setup button to enter Setup Mode, then press the green button next to the LCD screen until Replace Ink is displayed. Then press the x Color button. 2. Lift up the scanner 1314127a0e502194c0d970046a123efc.png 3.Wait for the ink cartridge holder to move over, then open its cover.
4. Identify the cartridge you need to replace. Press in the tab at the back of the cartridge, then lift it straight out. Dispose of it carefully.

5. Before unwrapping the new cartridge, shake it gently four or five times. Then remove it from its wrapper.
6. Insert the new cartridge into the holder. Press down firmly until it clicks into place.
7.
Close the ink cartridge cover.
8.
Lower the scanner.

The CX6600 begins charging the ink delivery system and “Charging . . .” appears on the LCD screen. Wait for charging to finish before using your CX6600.

Caution: Never turn off the printer while “Charging . . .” appears on the LCD screen, unless the CX6600 hasn’t moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.

After replacing the black ink nothing prints


Before taking out a new ink cartridge from its package, shake it four to five times. Are you sure you have the proper ink replacement cartridge.The following Epson ink cartridges should be used in your device: * Black: T0431 (high capacity cartridge) or T0441 (standard capacity cartridge) * Cyan: T0442 * Magenta: T0443 * Yellow: T0444 How did you discover the ink was low? Did the machine prompt you or was the printer not printing properly? The other colors should blend together to give you atleast some form of black. If the printer alerted you to change the cartridge...Go back through the procedure to install a new cartrige. Follow the steps below to replace ink cartridges. Make sure the CX6600 is on. When the ink is empty: Refer to the LCD panel message to see which ink cartridge is empty, then press the Color button. When the ink is low: Press the Setup Mode button to enter the Setup Mode and press the A button repeatedly until 5.Ink cartridge appears on the LCD panel, then press the Color button. The ink cartridges move to the replacement position. Make sure that the document cover is closed, then open the scanner unit. Open the cartridge cover. Pinch the sides of the ink cartridge that you want to replace. Lift the cartridge out of the CX6600. reinstall the same cartridge. (Try shaking it a few times again) If none of the above works uninstall the printer. Download the newest drivers from epson and the should straighten it out. Good Luck. Tim
