Epson CX6600 takes up to 2 minutes from when Print pressed to Print

We recently had new drive put in computer. So everything had to be reinstalled including the print program. Prior to this when print was pressed, it printed the page instantaneous. Now it takes 2 minutes before it will start to print. Printing is fine and computer seems fine. Would you know what the problem is?

Hey Zitta, Check to see that you have the latest version of the Printer Driver installed on your new drive. Go to and you should find your way through to your local site. Then head for the support area and look for the driver download.

Open ink cartridge holder

Here are some T/S steps for your problem:

Press the fontx1.gif Color button and open the scanner unit. Follow the messages on the LCD panel to replace the empty cartridge. See :

Running a printer operation check
If you are unable to determine the source of the problem, performing a printer operation check can help you determine whether the problem comes from the CX6600 or the computer.

Changing Cartridges

I inspected the users manual, there it writes:

The steps below to replace an ink cartridge: Caution: Leave the empty cartridge installed until you have obtained a replacement, or the ink remaining in the print head nozzles may dry out. To ensure good results, use genuine Epson ink cartridges and do not refill them. Other products may cause damage to your CX6600 not covered by Epson’s warranty. 1. If an ink cartridge is empty: Look at the LCD screen to see which cartridge is empty, then press the x Color button. If an ink cartridge is low: Press the Setup button to enter Setup Mode, then press the green button next to the LCD screen until Replace Ink is displayed. Then press the x Color button. 2. Lift up the scanner 1314127a0e502194c0d970046a123efc.png 3.Wait for the ink cartridge holder to move over, then open its cover.
4. Identify the cartridge you need to replace. Press in the tab at the back of the cartridge, then lift it straight out. Dispose of it carefully.
5. Before unwrapping the new cartridge, shake it gently four or five times. Then remove it from its wrapper.
6. Insert the new cartridge into the holder. Press down firmly until it clicks into place.
Close the ink cartridge cover.
Lower the scanner.
The CX6600 begins charging the ink delivery system and “Charging . . .” appears on the LCD screen. Wait for charging to finish before using your CX6600.

Caution: Never turn off the printer while “Charging . . .” appears on the LCD screen, unless the CX6600 hasn’t moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.

After replacing the black ink nothing prints

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.

(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
