    When I let my Thinkpad T40 go into sleep or hibernation, and then reawaken it, it won't recognize the Epson Stylus CX6600. When I turn the printer on, I get the message "USB Device Not Recognized." I tried rebooting, and that sometimes helped. At one point I removed the Epson software and reinstalled the printer, which helped. And I'm trying to avoid letting the Thinkpad sleep or hibernate.

    I have a Thinkpad and Epson CX6600. I don't use the card reader. When I connect the printer I get "USB device not recognized." For a while deleting and reinstalling the printer helped, and I avoided letting the computer go into sleep or hibernate mode. Now nothing seems to help. Any suggestions? It's about time to trash this printer.

Pete, You shouldn't have to reformat your hard drive to get a printer working. when you insert or remove the mini cards you must stop the device in windows. Windows views the card and the printer as a hard drive. To remove the card click the green arrow icon in the lower righthand corner of the desktop. Go to the Epson site and download the latest drivers for you model and if available download and update the firmware for the printer. Tim

Ok.. aside from the fact that you've posted under the R300 Epson model thread you're still in luck.

The CX6600 has been documented (by me admittedly) with a complete guide to fitting an external tank and resetting the waste ink counter in the printer.

Just to note: This is a commercial site but the information provided is generic and will help you fix the problem.

Try putting your question in the correct section: Epson C62. This section is for the CX6600 and is not appropriate for your machine.

Hi Cath.

Not sure why you would need the R260 service utility when your printer is the CX6600 but I'll answer both questions and hopefully you'll get everything you need.

The CX6600 problem is a relatively easy fix thanks to an article I wrote after fixing up one of these for my wife a few years ago. It includes information on resetting the protection (waste-ink) counter as well as redirecting the waste ink flow so that should cover that side of things.

Right... as to the R260.. You can reset the waste ink counter on that printer using the IPR_A10 utility from Epson.. Information about the utility and links for download are provided on

Hope that solves the issues you're having...

Possible that the waste ink collector is full. (When you clean the cartridges, some ink is used, and that ink has to go somewhere!)
Might be worth having a look at
(at your own risk, of course :) )
