Epson Stylus Color 660 won't print in black

I have an old Epson Stylus Color 660 that suddenly stopped printing in black. I had replaced the black ink cartridge not long before it stopped working properly, but after many cleanings I decided to sacrifice a new black ink cartridge just to be sure the cartridge wasn't the problem. It wasn't. I'm wondering if the print head needs to be replaced and if that's something I can still find for this old thing. It's been a terrrific printer for the past 8 years, and I would hate to throw it out if the problem can be fixed relatively easily and inexpensively. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hi
I had the very same problem.
I sent the printer to the head office for repair.
They Told me the same thing, that the head
is damaged. I used it for 9 years.
They asked me to replace the head with new one.
The new one costs around 100US$ (if available).
Best regards
Jehad (Jordan)

Hi,
You could try an extensive head cleaning session with fluid.
It,s possible that the nozzles are blocked. Or as you suggested yourself worn out. 8 years is more than standard factory life for any printer. you may find that the printhead has become clocked with dry ink. And the fresh stuff, just can,t get through.
Hope this helps you out, a little at least.

How to turn off color ink in Epson Stylus R300


There is a place in the printer driver (epson part) that hays checkboxes for "color" and "Black & White". If you are trying to do this becasue you are out of one or more of the color inks, and can't print- you still won't be able to until you replace the empty ink(s), even though you told it black & White

My epson stylus cx6000 has stopped printing black. I've cleaned the print head, changed the cartridge and it still won't print black. What else can I do?


Be sure you are using genuine epson ink. Epson printers are "smart" and will not allow generic ink to work properly. Even after you replace a generic with a genuine it may take several print outs and alignments to get it to print again.

Epson stylus C88 won t print color ink black is


If you have carried out 4 to 5 head cleans, waited about 8 hours and done another 3 or head cleans doing nozzle checks after each clean (as recommended by the manual) and there is still no improvement then you will need a third party head cleaning solution such as this one:

Other makes & brands are available just google "inkjet head cleaning solution" Hope this helps.

epson.com, actually you can print using black ink only, but you have to reset the color ink for it to register as full. :) or you can freeze the ink counter using the ssc service utility before the other ink rans out. :)

Red ink


Have you missed removing a piece of tape that covers a vent hole somewhere? This would stop the flow of that ink.
