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

1 Answer

Epson Stylus CX6600 does not print

1. I changed the cartridges (all colors)
2. I reinstalled the driver using installation CD
3. I rebooted the computer and printer

Despite these steps I cannot print from the printer. The printer does scan images though (implying communication is fine).

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Suggest you try resetting the waste ink counter on this printer to see if it will then allow it to print again.

  1. You will see big button on your printer like power on (this is on the left
  2. side), black & white photocopy, color photocopy, and then the stop button (these are on the right side).
  3. first turn off your printer
  4. push the b/w + color + stop buttons together and hold
  5. push the power on button and hold (so you'll now be holding down 4 buttons together)
  6. Don't release all the buttons until you see the light indicator is blinking and then a message display on the lcd
  7. release all the buttons
  8. push the color button (once)
  9. turn off the printer
  10. turn it on again


IF this works you will then need to fit an external waste ink tank as soon as possible to ensure you don't end up with a major headache (ie: ink swimming pool!) under your printer.

Instructions for completing the modification are available if you google your printer model and "waste ink".

CX6600 Epson - prints blank pages


If the Nozzle Check Pattern page prints correctly and completely, the problem may lie within your software settings, the interface cable, or your computer.

To remove and install only the Printer Driver for your CX6600, please perform the following steps:

Driver Removal

1. Go to START then SETTINGS and click on CONTROL PANEL ( START and CONTROL PANEL in Win XP) and double-click ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS.
2. To remove the printer portion select EPSON PRINTER SOFTWARE and click on REMOVE. Ensure the correct printer model is selected on the uninstall utility.
3. Click OK and follow the prompts. If asked to confirm removal of any personal settings or shared files, click YES or OK.
4. Once the components are removed, power off your unit and disconnect the USB cable.

Installation

1. Go to http://support.epson.com
2. Under Welcome to Epson Support click on ALL-IN-ONES and select FLATBED and then your Stylus model name. Under the Drivers & Downloads section select WINDOWS.
3. Download the most current driver for your printer and operating system.
4. Follow prompts through survey and license agreement and downloading will begin. When prompted, choose to SAVE this file; SAVE it to your desktop so it is easy to find.
5. Once download is complete, close your internet browser. To install simply double-click the file you downloaded and follow the prompts.
6. Do not reconnect the unit until the point in the printer driver installation where you are prompted to check that the unit is on and connected to the computer. Installation should complete automatically.

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.
7.
Close the ink cartridge cover.
8.
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.

I would try changing the ink cartridges and if you don't have a new set at least take out the ones you have and reseat. Also check Epson's site for new drivers. Try printing from a different program.
