Question about Epson Stylus CX6600 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Running cleaning cycles will only clear out some clogging but not really solid clogs which it sounds like you have with this printer.
I'd recommend finding a suitable cleaning solution (you'll have to google that I'm afraid) and then soak a pad of kitchen roll or similar in it... Place this pad on the printheads resting pad area (you may need to manually move the printhead to one side to do this.
... the push the printhead into the resting/parked position and leave overnight. This allows the cleaning solution to wick into the printhead nozzles and break down any clogged ink.
Run a single cleaning routine the next day (don't try to rush things!) and a single nozzle check. Leave for an hour and repeat a nozzle check.
You may need to repeat the cleaning pad routine but even a solidly clogged printer can be brought back to life so long as you are patient and you have the right solution (obviously).
Hope that helps.

Depending on when you last used your printer it may take a few head cleans before the ink prints. Print a nozzle check after each clean (uses minimal ink).
Also be aware each clean depletes your other carts as well.
