Question about Epson Stylus CX6600 All-In-One InkJet Printer
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
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. http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/1594393 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.
