Question about Epson Stylus CX4600 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Epson Stylus CX4600 printer/scanner

My printer has been down for about 10 months due to no ink. I went and purchased new ink loaded it up. everything is all hoaked up okay the printer feeds paper out and works like it is writing, but there is no ink on it. The ink is not appearing on my paper. On the computer it shows the ink is half gone already and there is nothing on my paper. I don't understand where it is going. Can you suggest something? Thank you, Joanne Nadon

It sounds like the nozzles may be blocked, if it has been left for 10 months will no ink - It will have dried up. It is probably worth you running a head cleaning procedure which can be done using the Epson software. Please let us know if this helps. Thanks Daniel

Has been setting 6 months , has new ink and paper

Ink jet printers are meant to be used regularly, at least once a week.
If it was used before you put it away for 6 months, the ink is dry on the jets.

First try the cleaning function. If you're lucky, after 2 or 3 tries it may work again, and the more you use it the better print quality will result.

Failing that, there are cleaning kits you can purchase.
They consist of a cleaning solution you can inject into a used-up cartridge.

Or better yet, you can take it to one of the places where they refill ink, and for a fee they'll get it going for you.

Just put in new ink and printer asking for new ink. Bought the printer just over 3 months ago and haven't even copied 75 copies. New ink installed and copied maybe 10 pages and computer asking for more...

I took out both inks, I then removed the tray they fit in. Turn it upside down and clean the contacts, use a soft cloth and dampen alittle. Clean all ink off bottom of ink tray. This solved my problem

you need to reset your printer. Do this: start>control panel>performance and maintenance> administrative tools> services: then scroll down until you come to print spooler, click on it and then in the left hand corner click on restart.
I do this whenever my printer gives me trouble, really works

Claims new ink cartridge is low...

Hello, at this point I would suggest COMPLETELY uninstall your photo printer, reboot your system and reinstall. Hopefully this helps.

I will tell you though, usually if after running cleaning utilities, the picture still has lines and spaces, could be due to print heads drying up and unable to output the proper amount of ink. This happens alot when people are not using their printer often enough to keep the ink flowing properly.

Recently I had to replace a printer that I had not printed on in like 3 months, the print heads dried up/ clogged up. And the new ink I had just purchased was a waste of money. Had to replace entire printer.

It is possable it needs a head clean. what make and model is it.
If the clean has failed to wirk, it might be that the head is faulty.
Are you using genuine ink cartridges, if not this could be the reason why.

No ink on paper

Called tech support. Problem seems to be Laser Shutter. Canon will send out tech support within 24-48 hours and with proof of purchased faxed in. However, it's probably faster and easier for me to return the machine.
