Question about Epson Stylus CX6600 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I recently replaced the Black ink cartridge in my CX6600. Now nothing will print. I did a nozzle check, nothing but a blank page came out. It acts likes its printing, the paper feeds thru and everything inside moves like its printing but, all I get are blank pages. I've performed the head cleaning SEVERAL times then do another nozzle check...still no improvement. Now when I check the ink levels it says the black ink is low! I just replaced it! My other ink levels are fine...help please.
Hello, I am having the same problem and have done extensive research to find out that with this exact problem you have mentioned, you must clean the printer head, nozzles, and waste ink tube. the process is a bit long and needs patience. You will have to take the print head assembly out of the sliding caddle and put it in a glass of rubbing alcohol to disolve the dryed ink within the printer head assembly. it is held in with a silver metal plate that runs across the assembly and screws to the sliding carriage. be carefull to remove the black clip on the right of the carriage to take it out. note to be careful to not pull the white info lines of the head. leave it in the glass overnight and also clean the tube that runs under the waste pad station and clean the clear waste tube as well. ....Good luck

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
