Question about Epson Stylus C60 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Uh... New Cartridge, Cleaned Heads... No Print?

Dear Folx,

OK, my friend has an Epson Stylus 60 ink jet printer. We did the basic
cleaning, making sure no debris, good paper, and cleaned the print heads
on the printer itself. I ran some utilities to find, it goes "through the motions" but, no out put. Shook the "brand new" ink cartridges,
removed the yellow tape, made sure color and black ink came out the
other end. Still no output.

Has anyone else had these issues? If all else fails, I'll go by a Lexmark. I
believe the printer is "WAY OUT" of warranty, and the "out of warranty"
support are closed on Half of Saturday.

The printer is in "READY" position, but when I want to make a test
page, or clean the nozzle heads, or align the cartridges, or check the
print heads. There is "nothing" that prints out. I'll keep playing with it, till
I get fed up, or ready to put it the firing squad! LOL

Thank you for letting me post.

    Dear Davecapt,

    Thank you for the advice! :) I did research on the matter, and I
    realized it (Printer) was the victim of a messy divorce! The "ex"
    had happened to it, jabbing odds and ends, even damaging
    the more sensitive parts of the printer itself. I didn't realize it at
    the time, yet from what I understand the "ex's" kids / friends
    took their wrath out on my friend's printer and "exited" the
    house leaving him with junk.

    One thing for sure, "don't get married if you can't afford it" !
    LOL! Thank you for the advice!

Hello irishmantx
It sounds like you are still blocked up. If you have already ran nozzel clean 4 or 5 times I would try soaking the ink cartridges where the ink is discharged. If you go to you can pick up a good, safe, solution just for this problem. They also send you very good instructions. I would be very, very, very careful about getting anywhere near the printing heads especially with liquids. This is an easy way to totally waste your printer.
Good luck, Davecapt

Take the cartridge in your hand and wipe the head with a tissue...

If all colors form a stripe on the tissue then the cartridge is ok and there is a problem with the printer...

Otherwise, your cartridge is blocked and you have to buy a new one.

I have an Epson Stylus CX5500, i currently replaced the cartridge with Miro Jet cartridge which is compatible with this tpye of printer. i started printing and the colours come ut incorrect. Also how do...

You can clean the heads with software function.
Open epson print center maintenance clean head. Or Right click on printer icon on task bar, Select clean head.

Even though the Miro cartridge is compatible the ink color, texture, drying time, is different. Resulting in colors coming out wrong. Try going to Miro jets site & download printer driver or color correction file for your printer. Most provide them.

Good Luck!

I replaced both ink cartridges for the printer, won' print.

Please follow the procedure your printer has which forces it printer to clean the print heads.
I have experience of other epson stylus models.  I have previously spoken to epson about this exact problem.  Repeating the head cleaning process a minimum 5 times cleared the problem.
Running head clean multiple times in succession builds up pressure in the print heads - causing (usually new) cartridges to work correctly.
kind regards

Magenta not printing

# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Epson Stylus COLOR 1520

There could be something wrong with the connections going to the ink jet cartridge in the printer.

Someone should take a look at it.

Ink Cartridge

Some of Epson's cartridges went bad that way. It may be a bad cartridge. Get a new one, pull that one out and see what happens. If it works, call Epson for a refund. They had a class action suit for that type of thing, they lost and paid off. I would think they will help you right away.

Epson CX4800 dried ink

You can use the "Clean Print Heads" function if your printer allows and provides such an option. You can find this option via the printer proprties (Start > Printers and Faxes, right click your printer and select Properties. The clean options will usually be on the Maintenance tab)
