If the computer shop said the new chips may not be recognized by the old printers then I would suggest you get an old cartridge which the printer recognizes and a chip resetter for Epson cartridges. Remove the new cartridge w/ the new chips and replace it with the older chip. You will probably need some double sided adhesive. When you pull out the chip you will notice 2 circular areas that hold the chip to the cartridge. One is actually like a small horseshoe so that you can slip it right back in. But the other one has a round flat end on protruding through the chip before you remove the chip. When you remove it, the plastic caves into the hole making it possible for you to remove the chip easily but impossible to put back. So to put in the older chip you need to snip out that piece of plastic so you have space to put in the adhesive. You can even use a small stretch of masking tape by rolling up about half an inch then putting it behind the chip. This way all you need to do it just change the chip everytime you run out of ink. It is a hassle but since you have bought large a supply of cartridges, don't waste it.

Bad printing after changing 2 inks also clicking noise not before


shouldn't be the ink. I assume you have an epson as in the picture. my ink refill kit mentions that "epson intellidge chipped cartridges" require an "ink level resetter" to complete the kit. So if you have these cartridges even once refilled the chip tells the printer the cartridge is still empty so you'll need to reset the chip with the ink level resetter.

My Epson CX6600 prints but the words seem to have skipped parts. No word or line is complete. Although there is ink, printing is very light. Any suggestions?


This sounds like you need to replace the ink cartridges. Stuff is missing because the ink is very low or empty. Also, if you have just replaced the ink cartridges then you might need to do a cleaning cycle on the printer.

Changed ink, but it still says the ink is low


Epson cartridges have to be reset with a inexpensive reset tool you can find on Ebay. It should have been reset at the factory, but this is not an uncommon problem. If it is new, I would get an exchange. Also if you can find a printer refill store such as Cart~Wiz, you might be able to get someone nice enough to reset it for you.

New ink cartridge not working properly


if you open the lid of the printer you should have the ink slide to have you take it out.
I would unplug the printer for about 5min and then plug it back in and then it should ask you to redo it again.

Changing Cartridges


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 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.
7.
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.
