    When I open the top to change ink cartridges, I get a message saying the scanner is open. I tried turning it off to reset, but no luck. I just replaced other cartridges last week without a problem.

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 Changing Cartridges - 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.

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 just replaced all my inks and it is still telling me to replace my cartridges i also turned it on then off


  1. Open the scanner.
  2. Press the cp_button_14.gif Stop button to move the cartridges to the replacement position.

    Caution: Do not move the print head by hand; this may damage your all-in-one. Always press and release the cp_button_14.gif Stop button to move it
  3. Open the cartridge cover.
  4. Press down all the ink cartridges until they click into place to make sure they are properly seated.
  5. Close the cartridge cover and push it down until it clicks into place.
  6. Close the scanner.
  7. Press the cp_button_14.gif Stop button to begin charging the ink. This takes about 2 minutes.
    When the On light stops flashing and remains on, ink charging is finished.

    Caution:
    Never turn off the Epson Stylus CX while ink is charging or you'll waste ink.
    If the ink light flashes, press the cp_button_14.gif Stop button and press down all the cartridges securely.
    If you remove an ink cartridge for later use, protect the ink supply area from dirt and dust and store it in the same environment as the Epson Stylus CX with the label facing upward. Note that there is a valve in the ink supply port, making covers or plugs unnecessary, but care is needed to prevent the ink from staining items that the cartridge touches. Do not touch the ink cartridge ink supply port or surrounding area, and do not store the cartridge upside down.

    If you remove a low or expended ink cartridge, you cannot reinstall and use the cartridge.

Caution: Do Not move the print head by hand; this may damage the printer, always press the ink

4. Press the " ink " button again

6. Squeeze the tab at the back of the empty/low cartridge and lift it straight out.

How to change all the ink cartridges at the same time because I was unable to remove some ink cartridges. The whole cartridges cannot be fully exposed.


Here are instructions on how to change the printer cartridges in an Epson Stylus. First open the printer cover. Look for the button with the picture of the ink drop on it. Press the button but do not hold it down for more then ten seconds. At fifteen seconds the align print cartridge function comes on and this will interfere with changing your cartridges. When you push the button with the picture of the ink drop on it, it will make the machine line up the cartridges in an area that you can reach easily. Then just remove the one you wish to replace. Use these instructions each time you change the cartridges.

Changing ink cartridge


  • Here is an instruction set I found at http://www.ehow.com/how_4488808_replace-ink-cartridges-lexmark-x2500.html
  • Step 1 Press the "Power" button to turn on your Lexmark X2500 3-in-1 printer.
  • Step 2 Open the top portion of the printer to reveal the ink cartridges.
  • Step 3 Lift the gray plastic cover on the left. Remove the empty black #28 ink cartridge. Next, lift the purple plastic cover on the right and remove the empty color #29 ink cartridge.
  • Step 4 Remove the new black #28 ink refill cartridge from its packaging. Tear the protective strip of paper from the cartridge's sensor. Now, remove the new color #29 ink refill cartridge from its packaging and tear the protective strip of paper from the cartridge's sensor.
  • Step 5 Turn the cartridges so that you can read the label. This is the way the cartridges should face when being put into the printer.
  • Step 6 Slide the black #28 cartridge into the slot on the left side and push it down. Slide the color #29 cartridge into the slot on the right side and push down.
  • Step 7 Push the gray plastic cover down over the #28 cartridge until it clicks closed. Push the purple plastic cover down over the #29 cartridge until it clicks closed.
  • Step 8 Close the top portion of the printer. Your new ink cartridges are installed, and your printer is ready to use.

    Cannot tell which inkjet color cartridge needs changing


    Disregard the monitor information and rely on the printer.

    On the left panel of the printer are your indicator lights and buttons. Push the button immediately to the left of the 'ink drop' light [looks like a little tear drop]. Open the cover and the printhead assembly will move to the left and stop. Look very closely and find that little 'ink drop' imprinted into the plastic in the very middle of the printer where the printhead assembly stopped. That 'ink drop' will line up wih the ink cartridge that needs replacing. Push that button on the left again and the printhead assembly will either return to the 'replace' position, or move to the next ink cartridge that needs replacing. Keep pushing that button just once at a time until the printhead assembly identifies all cartridges that need replacing and moves into the 'replace' position. This 'replace' position will be on the right side of the printer where the opening occurs that allows the top cover of the printhead assembly to open.

    Change the appropriate cartridges and you should be good to go.

    Changing Ink Cartridges


    I'm assuming you are using originals. I would suggest you taking the cartridges out and re-inserting them. If you are using refilled cartridges and you used the cartridges to almost empty then probably the chip may have short circuited rendering the chip useless. If you bought remanufctured cartridges I suggest you ask them for replacements. This isn't really that high tech but I hope this helps.
