Question about Epson Stylus CX6600 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have an epson stylus cx6600 printer and it wont print. i just got brand new cartridges and it still wont print. i think it is clogged how can i unclog it? or do you have any other ideas? thank you very much renee
I had the same problem with mine, first it was just the black and then nothing would print. I just happened upon this site and it was a HUGE help www.maxpatchink.com. I copied and pasted a protion of it here. I did this and sure enough mine had come off. Now I can print again. The problem I am looking to fix now is that the quality of my printing in "Draft or Text" is not up to standard.
The CX6600 is known for.................
Attention: If are having problems with sudden lack of inkflow after replacing one or more cartridges when using the Epson C and especially the CX all-in-one printers, we have been made aware of a design issue on these printers which may cause this problem.
Some of these Epson printers have a design flaw which causes the ink purge tube under the cleaning station to come apart during cartridge replacement. If this occurs, the printer is no longer transferring the vacuum from the purge pump to the printhead. In other words, no ink will be moved through the printhead onto the paper.
You need to look under the cleaning station and determine if the pump/vacuum tube has come off, and if so, reinstall it. Click here for pictures to identify this problem and help you resolve it.
NEVER leave your Epson printer without an installed cartridge, even an empty one, for more than half an hour. The ink will begin to gel in the built-in print head to the consistency of honey! It will require multiple head cleaning routines to clear (if it does).

I can sympathize with your problem. I spoke to an "honest" sales rep at a leading electronics store and he suggested to clean the nozzles with a high concentration of rubbing alcohol, something on the order of 90%. Don't know if this will help but I thought I'd mention it anyway. Good luck!
