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

1 Answer

Black lines interferring with printouts

Every document I print on my CX6600 has black lines printed out through out. I have tried changing out the ink cartridges, cleaning the nozzles, checking the alignment, re-installed the printer drivers, checked all of the printer settings. Checked for updates. The different quality settings changes the spacing of the lines IE: normal gives about 3 lines per inch and fine gives about 12 lines per inch. I cannot produce any useable documents and or pictures.

Not really sure what you mean by lines on your documents, but you could have excessive ink spilled on your printer rollers.or the page bar,,this can usually be remedies by taking the printer apart and carefully cleaning all of the surfaces the paper run against.

The black ink on my HP Photosmart 3310 printer does not print. All the colour cartridges print with no problems.


Black printer ink in HP Photosmart may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

HP L7700 officejet printer leaves streaks on black ink lines only. Have cleaned heads repeatedly, changed black and color cartridges - nothing works.


Print in grayscale (black area streaking only) If the streaks are in a black area of a black and white printout, change to grayscale printing.
NOTE: This step does not apply to color printouts.
  1. In the application you are printing from, click File , and then click Print .
  2. Make sure the printer is selected and click Properties .
  3. Click the Color tab, and select Print Grayscale and High Quality .

Black ink problem with printout on hp7780


Always try replacing the ink cartridges first.

It sounds like the print heads in the 7780 are bad. Don't confuse the ink cartridges with print heads. The cartridges fit inside the print heads. You will need to change the heads. Here is a link to HP's how-to.

Could have the same problem with the Dell.

Mostly yellow print out


i think your color cartridge are not jetting fully..other nozzles are not jetting ..the main reason for this is low ink level and clog nozzles..

you need to replace your cartridge if you satisfies with your ink ...try to wipe the cartridge in a wet cloth ...

CX6600 prints black lines through out documents


In this case what i would request u to do is....... Take out both the catridges from the Printer......... Take 2 Paper Towels one should be wet with Luke warm water and the other one should be dry........... Take the Colour catridge first turn it upside down and u will see a small copper plate on the catridge from where the ink comes out....... Place the wet paper towel using ur thumb on the Copper plate and press it a lit bit for 10 Seconds...... Now remove it and see whether u see any ink on the paper towel.......... U should see some ink on it now place the dry paper towel on the ink catridge in the same way........ Now do the same procedure again.......... Do the same procedure twice on the Black Catridge................. Now take the dry paper towel and turn the direction of the cartridge so that u can see a Copper plate on it with small boxes just clean that copper plate with the Dry Paper Towel.......... Now try to Print it should work fine.......... Still same Problem Catridges Defective......... Good Luck...........

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. The ink cartridges move to the replacement position. Make sure that the document cover is closed, then open the scanner unit. Open the cartridge cover. Pinch the sides of the ink cartridge that you want to replace. Lift the cartridge out of the CX6600. reinstall the same cartridge. (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
