Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Attention **ggin, your ranking Guru: I have 3 problems: First, I can't remember what to do to change or check the ink cartridges in the printer (Epson Stylus CX6600.) I have misplaced or lost my manual. Can you please send me a**ther one for this printer? Second, my actual problem right **w is that I have plenty of ink available in all cartridges, but my black ink is **t printing right **w. There could be a**ther one **t printing also, but I frankly don't k**w which one that would be. I suspect the green (combination of blue and yellow, I k**w, but I seem to have plenty of yellow printing.) ** blue and ** green, so I guess it's the blue. I thought I'd shake all cartridges real well, once you tell me how to get to them. Should I be cleaning something? Whatever that is, I'll need to k**w what and where it's located, then how to do it. Third. Each time I start to use the printer after being away from it for awhile (a few hours), it will say on the screen that the printer is **t ready. I will have to turn it off, then turn it back on. Once I do that, it will start printing. I've ***** had that happen before. What do I have to do to fix it? Be aware that I'm a woman who has ** idea how to fix anything. I will have to be led through very well - ** steps left out or I won't be able to follow. My husband is blind and is of ** help. Okay? Thanks for your help. Kathye Long

Brother MFC-465CN won't prink cyan

You got to re-check back the Ink Cartridge you've buy recently.. Sometime the ink already freeze inside the cartridge bcoz its been really-really-really long time they keep before the usage.. Ive also have experience about problem like this b4, so better re-check/change back the cartridge.. Or If the
printer head is not at the cartridge, it is seperate from the cartridge, you have to check back the printer head also.. normally all the new printer head comes together with the cartridge.. and prefer to use the Original Cartridge more than Pirated Cartridge ok.. Cheap Cartridge always giv a lot of problem, especially like Your problem.. Thats All, Good Luck and Happy Trying..

My MP160 has an error code E5 and nothing I do will move it

I think you may have answered your own question.
Here is a list of error codes for your printer, as you can see the code E5, means the cartridge is not installed properly or un-supported.
I would remove cartridge, check slot for debris, clean contacts on cartridge, re-seat cartridge and then try again. If all fails then try a new cartridge, as the other one could be faulty.
If you still have no joy, you probably have a faulty print head unit.

E2-2 = No paper (ASF)
E3-3 = Paper jam
E4 = No ink
E5-5 = The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed, or the ink cartridges are not installed properly
E8 = Waste ink absorber full, or platen waste ink absorber full
E9 = The connected digital camera / video camera does not support Camera Direct Printing
E14 = The Ink cartridges whose destination are wrong
E15 = Ink cartridge is not installed E16 - Ink remaining is unknown
E16 -E19 = Failed to scan head alignment sheet
E22 = Carriage error
E23 = Paper feed error
E24 = Purge unit error
E25 = ASF(cam) sensor error
E26 = Internal temperature rise error
E27 = Waste ink absorber full or platen waste ink absorber full
E28 = Ink cartridge temperature rise error -
E29 = EEPROM error
E33 = Paper feed position error
E35 15 = USB Host VBUD overcurrent error - USB
E37 17 = Abnormal motor driver error
E40 20 = Other hardware error
E42 22 = Scanner error

Changed the black ink and while it's seems like the document is printing, no ink appears on paper.

This was Rob's response to a similar problem which I had. d0c4ec0.jpg robmcd27

The black ink is not the problem, it's the nozzle. The nozzle for the black ink head is clogged with dried up ink. If it were mine, I would remove the print head and use a q-tip dipped in alcholol to clean the nozzle. Let the alcohol dry and put it back together and run another auto print head cleaning.
You're probably going to have to do it a few times. It's going to depend on how bad the clog is. This will fix you...just be patient. Remember that ink has been dried on several months. Don't forget to rate my help. Thanks for coming to
