My Epson Styluss CX6600 won't charge

I have an Epson Srylus CX6600 Printer and when I turn it on I get an error message that states Error-Check Documentation. Then you may have to call service. The carriage where the Printer Cartridges sit will not move therefore, the printer will not charge.

Re: My Epson Styluss CX6600 won't charge

This may be very simple. Turn the unit off and lift up the top. On the forward side of the unit you will find a little 'slider switch'. This is the scanner unlock - toggle the switch back and forth several times and leave in the unlock position. Turn on the printer and all will be well.

Open ink cartridge holder

Here are some T/S steps for your problem:

Press the fontx1.gif Color button and open the scanner unit. Follow the messages on the LCD panel to replace the empty cartridge. See :

Running a printer operation check
If you are unable to determine the source of the problem, performing a printer operation check can help you determine whether the problem comes from the CX6600 or the computer.
To perform a printer operation check, follow these steps.
r_1.gif Disconnect the USB cable from your computer. r_2.gif Make sure that Letter-size paper is loaded in the sheet feeder. r_3.gif Press the fontp.gif On button to turn on the CX6600, and make sure the ! Error light is off. r_4.gif Press the Setup Mode button to enter Setup Mode. r_5.gif Press the A or the fontl1.gif/fontr1.gif Select button repeatedly until 3.Nozzle check appears on the LCD panel, then press the fontx1.gif Color button. The CX6600 starts printing. The CX6600 prints an operation check page that includes a nozzle check pattern.
Compare the quality of the printed test page with the sample shown below. If there are no print quality problems, the CX6600 is fine and the problem probably lies with the printer software settings, the application settings, the interface cable (be sure to use a shielded cable), or the computer itself.
If the test page does not print satisfactorily, there is a problem with the CX6600. For example, if bands appear in the check

Epson cx6600

If you are using a cartride that has been refilled it may just need recharged. I purchase my cartridges off Ebay and some will not charge, so I just use a small devise, which you can purchase off Ebay, that allows you to reset the cartridge. IF a cartridge does not charge it will not work.

CX6600 error message

I suspect that a bit of gum may have traveled elsewhere into the printers internals. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful.

Just turning the printer off, pausing for 30 seconds, then turning it back on should reset it, but I'm sure you have already tried that.

OK guys quite a simple one....

with the printer on press & hold both the small red button ( far right ) and the green, colour copy button. Whilst still holding press the power button wait till the unit powers off. Press the power button again, shortly after the unit powers on, the lights flash, let go of the two buttons your holding. The screen shoul dnow say "Init EEPROM" if it doesn't repeat procedure till it does. Now press the green colour copy button once, screen should now say "Push power sw" Press and hold the power button, the unit will power off and on again, now release the power button and your printer should be working again. Now you should change your waste pads......
