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

Epson Tylus CX4600 ink light

If any ink cartridge is empty, you won't be able to print until you replace the empty cartridge. Leave any empty cartridge installed in the device until you have obtained a replacement.

The print heads will clog up in a week or two. So you also won't be able to print until you clean the print heads.

This is a utility to manage your ink. Gives an accurate count of how many ink shots are left in each cartridge. The printer told me I need a new magenta but this program says I have 13% left. It also has separate routines for cleaning the black and color (unfortunately not individual cartridges)

Can't change ink cart. EPSON STYLUS CX 4600

I may have tripped across a solution to the ink carrier that doesn't want to behave.

I turned the printer off. Then, while holding down the Ink button, I also pressed and held the On button- and kept holding them. Somewhere in documentation I read that this would kick off some process, but I didn't remember what. It didn't turn on right away, but after 4 or 5 seconds of holding the buttons down, started up, went through some motions, and lo and behold, it landed on the spot showing me my cyan cartridge was out. Pressed it again, and it went to the cartridge change position.

I had to think about it, because I was now faced with breaking open a cartridge package worth $35 that could go towards the price of a new printer, and the printer still may not work, but I went boldly forward and it seems to be working fine.

Epson Stylus Printer CX4600


I don't know if this will work on an Epson, but it does on Cannon. The pads on the cartridges or the ink jets in the printer head may be cloged with dry ink. Get some Q-tips and rubbing alcohol (water is a poor substitute). Take out the ink cartridges and touch the pad on the bottom with a Q-tip (one for each color). If there is color the cartridge pad is OK. Take a fresh Q-tip dip it in rubbing alcohol and GENTLY rub the little holes on the bottom of the plastic box the cartridges go in. Thse are the print head jets. You should see color. You may need to clean it a couple of times if the ink has dried down into the jets. It is OK to have the Q-tip pretty wet, but not dripping.

Hope this helps

Installing my printer on computer without the disc

Go to and ask if they have "A CX4600 install ISO"

If they do not have the ISO you should still be able to download the driver from the Epson support web site, but they may not have the original software extra's that were on the disk. I know for instance you can no longer get Epson PrintCD via legitimate methods only by asking other people to copy it for you - which of course is naughty and we don't condone such things!!
