Question about Epson Stylus C60 InkJet Printer

3 Answers

I haven't used my epson C60 for three years approximately - just got new ink and I thought I installed the printer properly on my computer but it is printing blank pages. It goes back and forth as if it's printing and the ink levels show full when I go to the printer properties but nothing is coming onto my pages! I have Windows Vista if that means anything.

Hi It is probably the printer not the OS first because the printer has been idol for so long it is more than likely the the printheads are covered in ink or have dried ink in them first try recovering the printheads a good few times then if that fail get a sponge you use to clean dishes get sissors and cut the abrasive part of and try GENTLY aline it under the printhead carriage. best way is as the printer is initalising and you hear the carriage start to move pull the power this will let you get to the carriage without damaging it. Then comprise the sponge have two a wet and a dry one and have the sponge under the carriage the wet one first. And move the carriage from side to side you should see the sponge darks with the ink coming of then the dry spong. Then the wet and then the dry. after a bit remember to wash the sponges if you cant get a songe try a cloth. If this doesnt work you might have to try to strip the printer down.

Remove the printer and uninstall. then reinstall the printer software back to the PC, the reconnect the printer to the PC . the printer will be detected and the new hardware will be installed.
Now do a test print, if not try a head cleaning using the maintenance key. If this wont work the printer head is faulty.Check cost and decide.

Double check to make sure the packaging material is removed and that the cartridges are inserted properly.

Epson c60 printer not compatable with windows vista need a driver but have no idea where to download it


The driver for the Epson C60 printer is included with Vista - all you need to do is connect the printer to the computer with Vista running and turn it on. If you have already done this and the printer does not work properly (but see the info about the Status Monitor below), turn the printer off, uninstall the printer using the Control Panel-Programs and Features-Epson Printer Software, then reboot the computer. Once Vista is running, turn the printer on and it should then install OK.

HOWEVER, the printer Status Monitor (SM) is not included in this process and if you try to install the XP version of the SM, it will not work. Epson appears to have no intention of remedying this problem. This means you have no means of monitoring your ink levels, nor of changing the cartridges, cleaning the heads etc via the computer, although some of these tasks can be carried out via the printer control panel (see your hand book on how to do this).

A good solution is to use the free SSC utility as your SM - download from:

http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml

Install it, and double click the ssc printer icon in the bottom right corner (System Tray). Choose Configuration and set your printer type (C60), then close the ssc window. Now right click the ssc icon in the sytem tray and choose the SM function you wish to use.

If you have any further queries on this, please post a new comment.

How do I clean and maintain my Epson Stylus C60printer?


Kesha,

In order to find out if it will work you have to get new cartridges so the printer can print. The printer can sense if the ink is to low and can cause it not to work correctly.

Hope this helps
