    Changed black ink cartridge. Paper runs through but won't print on any of the four colors. I've tried head cleaning, alignment, changing ink cartridges, turning printer off, resetting, nothing works. It worked fine until I changed the ink cartridges. It has not been sitting unused for more than 24 hrs.

    Hello, I am having the same problem, I tried all the general maintenance techniques such as cleaning, realignment, etc. I have changed my cartrdges all 4, but the black is decreasing rapidly, but nothing is printing on the paper. the other inks are decreasing at a slow rate. This is very fustrating because the printer is not very old. I was informed by an employee at STAPLES that it may be clogged. What can I do to unclogged it? Please, need help urgently. Thank you.

    Printer queue says "Paused; default" When I click resume printing nothing prints. Same problem as others have reported. The printer moves the paper through but there is nothing on it, although it will scan. I've done head cleaning and nozzle check, but it has quit printing. I even downloaded another driver.
    I called Apple Care and they believe it is an Epson problem, because we've checked everything else it could be. Nothing is wrong with the computer.

    The printer printed ok then after a few hours without use the printer took the paper through, sometimes comes out blank other times prints a few words on the left hand side of the paper, but not black mostly light blue.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Just changed black ink - installed high capacity cartridge. Now mostly blank pages, occasional bit of something. Black ink level going down. Is it evaporating? Or is this a desperate attempt to get Epson margins up? I have reinstalled the software (and did it with the update version of the printer drivers). No change in result. Have also removed and reinstalled the new and expensive cartridge. No change. WHAT'S GOING ON??????

    my initial problem started maybe 2 years ago and the printer started not printing with black ink. I did many nozzle checks and print head cleanings and eventually can not even print in color. I replaced all ink cartridges twice and still nothing. Now all I get are blank pages with nozzle checks and everything else. The scanner works and I hate to replace the printer if it is an easy fix. The copier also was working but now no longer works. Epson help desk was useless. Any help would be appreciated.

    It won't print anything. I clean it out and did head cleanings and now I can get the yellow to print. It doesn't help me much. Any ideas would be great.

    I tried to refill the black cartridge using ink different ink. It causes that my printer stop printing. At the beginning the print start coming out with lines like if I was printing using a notebook paper. However I changed the cartridges and it din't work but the cartridges ran out of ink almost immediately now it doesn't print at all. The paper comes out blank.

    My problem started with text having lines in them about every inch or so. I did nozzle check and other fixes still same problem. I can print text using the other colors with no problems. Now, no black ink shows up on the page at all, in pictures or in text and yet my ink black ink cartridge level is going down??

    All I did was replace an empty black ink cart and now none of them print -- self test gives a faint, gappy black with some yellow printout. Nozzle check, head clean, nothing helps.

    Move printhead to cartridge changing position. Unplug printer.

    Move the white plastic cleaning pad to the right and make sure the hose is connected to the pump. This hose primes/pump the ink into the print head during cleaning and printing . Also, the hose goes to an absorbtion pad on the bottom and if it forms a blockage there, it wont prime the printhead.

    Use a syringe (without needle) to force water through the hose and blow it clear. Reattach hose to pump under white plastic cleaning pad.

My Epson Stylus CX6600 Printer is printing blank pages. All inks finished about the same time -within days. Once I changed the last one (black), my next 3-4 print jobs were only showing yellow and the printing after that blank.

It sounds that the print head nozzle is clogged. Since head cleaning and replacing ink cartridge wont help. The best solution is to take the unit to service center however if you think buying new printer is more cost effective - I suggest go for new printer. If ever your printer still under warranty. I will call epson and ask for replacement.

If you left your printer for two weeks or more without using, the print heads may be stuffiness. In this case (aparently yours cases) you must take your printer to a authorized service, they will can clean (with a proper fluid) or replace the ink heads, if cleaning is not possible.
