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

CX6600 'prints' blank sheets

Hi, I have an Epson CX6600 printer in which I have just changed the Yellow, Magenta and Cyan cartridges, the black is down to 15% but I can't change that yet. Anyway, before I changed the cartridges the printing was ok, well, what you would expect from cartridges about to give up the ghost, but now that it is fitted with new, full cartridges and I have done a purge - Nothing. The carriage goes through all the motions but no ink is deposited on the page. I'd be really grateful for any suggestions. Cheers Drummabil

    This 'all in one' worked fantastic until the original ink cartridges were depleted. I have since replaced all of the cartridges with brand new compatible cartridges and now all printing functions are barely readable. Yes, all the tape has been removed from all of the cartridges before replacement and all of the cartridges have gone through the standard activation process.........

Ive just had mine apart, and my purge line was clogged, full of dry ink, i replaced the tube, with another epson tube i got from work, and i still have the same problem, my personal opinion is that the print heads are also clogged. i will be taking my printer to work to have my senior look at it, considering ive only started printer repairs. I will post up more info as and when i find the problem. but if you need help on Olivetti PR2 or PR2E im more than happy to help.

Hey Drummabil First thing to check is that if you are using compatible cartridges instead of the good stuff, ensure that any tape that needs to be removed from vents is taken off. I have seen many a printer with carts installed still wearing the tape over the vents. If you are using the good stuff, you may be experiencing a known issue with this (and similar) Epson models. You can check out the following file which contains a load of information about rectifying this common problem. The info is all from Epson sources and describes the cause of the problem and goes on to show to resolve it. It shows you specifically what causes error and how to remedy it. They also include service manuals for the CX5100 CX5200 CX5300 CX5400 CX6300 CX6400 machines to further aid you in rectifying the problem.

If you go to your printer properties, there should be a setting whereby you have to select the option to "PRINT USING BLACK CARTRIDGE ONLY". Make sure this option is selected, otherwise your printer will use ALL colors even if you only print black.

Not printing

Epson printers Will NOT print with any empty cartridge installed.(any Colour) replace the empty carts and you should be on your way

I have a used C60. I have replaced both ink cartridges with Epson cartridges. When printing in color, the colors are not accurate. For example, red comes out yellow. Also, there are lines running through...

Hi there. The reason for your problem is that the colour cartridge contains cyan, magenta and yellow ink, plus a black cartridge of course. All the other myriad colours are produced by mixing these four basic colours. So, if you print red, it requires ink from both the magenta and yellow cartridges. Thus if your red produces a yellow print, it means your magenta is not printing. This can be due to a number of reasons, mainly an empty or faulty magenta cartridge or blocked magenta print nozzles.

If you wish me to help you with sorting out the lack of magenta, please post a new comment to this effect.

Try remove and shake the inks and reinstall it back in and test to print. If you have tried more than 4x with the head cleaning it might be your ink pads inside the printer is clogged. Is this still under warranty? You have to call Epson they might help you out with it.

Sorry to say but NO you can't print if there are other inks which ae empty, thats one safety features of epson printers to prevent nozzle clogging. change the other ink carts as well for you to continue printing.
