Question about Epson Stylus CX6600 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printing using Parrallels and winxp

I have an Epson CX6600 printer. When I had it hooked up to my PC, it worked just fine. When I hooked it up to my Mac, it worked just fine. But when I tried to print using winxp via Parrallels on my Mac, it doesn't work. The USB printer is hooked directly to a USB port on the printer. The printer installed on Win XP okay, and I can change the sharing from win to Mac, but when I try to print, it comes up with an error screen that disappears fast to read and it causes the winxp side to restart.

Hi Andy,

This helps remove the nag screen:

  1. Go to Printers and Faxes (or the equivalent screen that lists all your printers)
  2. Right click your CX6600 printer and choose "Printing Preferences"
  3. Click on the "Maintenance" tab
  4. Click on the "Speed & Progress" button
  5. Tick the "Disable EPSON Status Monitor" checkbox
  6. Click on OK
  7. Click on OK to close the Preferences window
That should sort you out and allow you to print in relative peace...

Ok.. aside from the fact that you've posted under the R300 Epson model thread you're still in luck.

The CX6600 has been documented (by me admittedly) with a complete guide to fitting an external tank and resetting the waste ink counter in the printer.

Just to note: This is a commercial site but the information provided is generic and will help you fix the problem.

Epson CX6600 lines on standard color printing

See my previous posts about intensive underhead cleaning. If the standard cleaning cycle in the printer driver/control panel does not clear the nozzles then following the info in previous posts about underhead cleaning should get you going again.
