Question about Epson Stylus CX6600 All-In-One InkJet Printer

3 Answers

Stopped up again

I've had 6600's for over 2 years and have owned 3. They all were working fine until the nozzles quit without warning. I've tried using the head cleaning utility,to no avail. The first two were replaced by Epson, now I'm out of warranty. Am I only one that has had this problem?

    I'm sick of this cx6600 printer. The nozzles constantly clog if I don't use it for like 2 weeks. I'm fed up!! I'm buying another brand of all-in-one.

Ok i had the same problem, so. i opened the all in 1 printer. and then i pulled the ink things out and then i cleaned the little holes that the ink goes around. and then when i went to put the ink back in i noticed that the black ink had a problem! the tab that held it in got bent some how? so. i just put all new ink in and it fixed the problem!!!! that easy! it ran thou it's cycle and that is called (charging) it will say chargeing on the printer, that is when it is chargeing. so if you are having these problems- try doing this.

Ran into the same problem after 2 sets of ink changes. Printer made all the sounds of printing but only blank pages. Cleaned the nozzels with cleaning solution.(They wern't clogged). After reading all the posts on the internet about this problem put the printer in the garbage can Saturday and ordered a Brother laser printer from COMPUSA. Thought about the problem and decieded to try one more time to repair. I found the ink drain tube was clogged from the tray to the first connection. WHAT THAT HAS TO DO WITH ANYTHING IS BEYOND ME. I removed it and ran a tiny wire through it. Reassembled everything and printer is working fine again. You may want to check that tube.

I've installed color cartridge but it won't print in color

Try to re-insert the color cartridge into the printer and make sure it is properly seated in the cartridge carrier.
If that doesn't help, try to clean the print nozzles. Please follow the steps below:
1. Press Copy. 2. Press Options until Maintenance appears on the display. 3. Press the right arrow until Clean Cartridges appears on the display. 4. Press Select. A nozzle page prints, forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the clogged nozzles. 5. Print your document again to verify that your print quality has improved.

Call service technician.
Call Boch Phone: 608/257-2225

I don't see a service manual posted on internet.
Without a service manual showing ohm-readings for testing different parts, you are left guessing which part is problem.
Most water heater manuals today recommend yearly service to catch up on most causes for failure including air in fuel line, dirty or corroded burner parts, defective sensor, loose connection, etc.

Printer worked fine until yesterday changed ink cartridges now black wont work tried all options


well changing the cartridges will not effect anything to the printer but the duration taken for replacement will. As in epson if you leave the printer without cartridges will clog the head nozzles. Did you remove the cartridges and turned off the printer and left idle for sometime? if yes then follow the instructions below

1. Print nozzle check test print to know which nozzles are not working
2. Head cleaning from the printer software.
3. Perform step 1 again to see the difference after cleaning


Then you have to take the print head out of the printer and clean the nozzles by using hot water in the Syringe and blowing the derbies out of the nozzles.

You need a dealer, the wiper motor is controlled by the BCM and can be run through an active test to see what is wrong. To do this test you need a special scan tool.

I have this model and it has stopped making ice for two different reasons. These solutions may not fix your particular problem, but they worked for me.

Problem #1: the water inlet to the ice tray is frozen shut.
Solution #1: Raise the door that hides the ice tray. The water inlet is the black rubber nozzle on the right-hand side that points down into the ice maker. Squeeze the rubber nozzle between your fingers to break up any ice that may have formed inside the nozzle. This will clear the water path into the ice maker. Lower the ice tray door.

Problem #2: an ice cube is stuck in the ice tray.
Solution #2: Raise the door that hides the ice tray. Look for any pieces of ice that were not completely ejected from the ice tray - they are usually partially ejected and are very easy to see. Carefully (but it may require a good deal of force) remove ice cube from tray. Lower the ice tray door.

I hope this helps.
