Question about Epson Stylus C60 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have a used C60. I have replaced both ink cartridges with Epson cartridges. When printing in color, the colors are not accurate. For example, red comes out yellow. Also, there are lines running through it.

Hi there. The reason for your problem is that the colour cartridge contains cyan, magenta and yellow ink, plus a black cartridge of course. All the other myriad colours are produced by mixing these four basic colours. So, if you print red, it requires ink from both the magenta and yellow cartridges. Thus if your red produces a yellow print, it means your magenta is not printing. This can be due to a number of reasons, mainly an empty or faulty magenta cartridge or blocked magenta print nozzles.

If you wish me to help you with sorting out the lack of magenta, please post a new comment to this effect.

Epson C60 prints with ink marks on the page. I've tried cleaning it the best I can?


damil738 Streaking or spoting is usually caused by a bad ink cartridge or saturated waste ink pads (thats not common). You might try to remove the ink cartridges and with a paper towel dab around the the spikes that go into the cartridges (1 Black, 3 color) from the printer. Check the bottom of the cartridges for excess ink. If there is blockage go to Inkmizer.com, they have an excellant cleaning solution and directions to do it properly. Replace the ink cartridges no matter what you do. In most cases that solves the problem without doing anything else.

I need to print a document. its only has black font. my printer wont print because i only a black cartridge and not a colored one. even though im not using color.


sizzel180, You have to have both black and color ink cartridges in order to print. The C-60 will only use the colors in the document you are printing.

Printer will not print


You must have both cartridges installed and neither must be empty. Note the red light on - this means an ink problem. See the handbook (download from Epson website if you don't have one) to see what the various light combinations mean.

After cartridge change, the printer will not work


you might not like it, but here it is, it is the truth

Epson ink jet printers require all of the ink cartridges to have ink in them in order to print any color, black and white, or grayscale images. Epson printers contain a permanent print head that needs to be charged with all colors to work. Even when users are printing black text only, a small amount of color ink is used to keep the print head charged for color printing and prevent air bubbles from entering the color print nozzles which can damage the print head. Therefore, once one of the cartridges are expended, the printer signals you to replace the cartridge in order for printing to continue.

Not printing after color cartridge ran out - new black cartridge installed.


Yes, this printer has fixed printheads and must have ink in each color to prevent damage to the printheads. Even when printing black only each color is spit in the servicing area to keep the printhead unclogged.

It will not print.


Hi Greenhorn, Your info is slightly conflicting - I think. As I remember the C60 has just 2 LED's: 1 - Green for Power 2 - Red for Error The third button - Cartridge exchange - has no LED Now it is a while since I looked at a C60 and my brain leaks like a sieve, but that's the way I remember it and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. The error codes I remember are: Printer status - Indicators - Priority Power - Error Power ON condition On - Ink sequence Blink - Ink Cartridge change mode Blink - Data processing Blink - Paper Out *1 - On Paper jam condition *1 - On Ink end (Black) *1 - On -> Blink Ink level low (Black) - Blink-> Blink Ink end (Color) *1 - On -> Blink2 Ink level low (Color) - Blink-> Blink2 Ink end (Black and Color) - On -> On No Ink Cartridge (Black or Color) *1 - On Maintenance request (Ink Overflow Countererror) *1 Alt Blink Alt Blink Fatal error *1 Off On Special setting Blink2 Blink2
