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

1 Answer

Need to scan

My CX6600 is giving an error message saying that two of the inks need to be changed. All I have to do is scan something onto a smart media, is there anyway to do that or does the ink need to be changed first?

    I too am having the same problem... could've sworn I had another cartridge around here somewhere. Anyway, ordered new cartridges and have to wait, but need to scan. The error message along with the brightly lit red exclamation point have made ALL of the buttons, except for the power button, inoperable. Anyone know of any workarounds?

If you choose the setting to scan to memory it should function without problem. However, why not change the ink anyway. If the carts are empty and you leave it too long you will probably find that when you do change them you will loose ink output as the head/wicks will dry out.

Call Epson tech support and then Get a CISS for your printer. It will save you TONS of MONEY, never change a cartridge again and it will pay for itself in a month.

Ok.. aside from the fact that you've posted under the R300 Epson model thread you're still in luck.

The CX6600 has been documented (by me admittedly) with a complete guide to fitting an external tank and resetting the waste ink counter in the printer.

Just to note: This is a commercial site but the information provided is generic and will help you fix the problem.

Red light

Your printer appears to have hit he "ink overflow protection counter" meaning that it thinks the waste ink pads in the base are full.

If the printer is in warranty, get Epson out to it. If not you can sort the error yourself using the rescue kit for the CX6600 available here: http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/2379162-stylus-cx6600-rescue-kit-zip

Changed the black ink cartridge but can't print just black

Hi-

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.

Epson cx6600

If you are using a cartride that has been refilled it may just need recharged. I purchase my cartridges off Ebay and some will not charge, so I just use a small devise, which you can purchase off Ebay, that allows you to reset the cartridge. IF a cartridge does not charge it will not work.

Service required error

Hi Cath.

Not sure why you would need the R260 service utility when your printer is the CX6600 but I'll answer both questions and hopefully you'll get everything you need.

The CX6600 problem is a relatively easy fix thanks to an article I wrote after fixing up one of these for my wife a few years ago. It includes information on resetting the protection (waste-ink) counter as well as redirecting the waste ink flow so that should cover that side of things.


Right... as to the R260.. You can reset the waste ink counter on that printer using the IPR_A10 utility from Epson.. Information about the utility and links for download are provided on wasteink.co.uk


Hope that solves the issues you're having...

Stylus CX6600 Won't Turn On...

Sounds like the printer has hit the "Ink Overflow Protection Limit Value" - sounds dreadful but it's not too bad.

The machine "counts" how much ink is pumped into the waste pads in the base of the machine. When the count reaches a predefined value the machine stops working. This is to prevent ink overflowing onto your desk and making a real mess.

In reality you can reset the counter without having the pads changed at least one time.

You will need to find a CX6600 rescue kit for your machine so you can get the counter reset. The software communicates with the main board and resets the counter to zero.

You can download a rescue kit from tradebit here
