Top 20 Epson Stylus CX6600 All-In-One InkJet Printer Questions & Answers

Refilling can be messy. Some printers will not register ink levels unless they are provided by that company. Using less expensive carts from most resellers will work when NEW. Some carts have a small electronic switch that tells the printer its ok to use, and some remain open and will not talk to the printer even if they are full. The Government filed a suite against printer mfg. to stop them from making their printers utilize proprietary ink carts. Thus you can use any available cartridges you wish. The only problem, the printer may not tell you the ink levels.

...I figured it out for my printer today... just got new ink, had the same problem, saw these posts getting me nowhere, so I figured ok the ink cartridge is fine... so what else is between that and the paper. I decided to go out on a limb and get a paper towel and clean off the little plastic nubbin that's inside the printer (the part that sticks into the cartridge, sticking out from where you place the ink) and it printed completely perfectly after that.

I hate to state the obvious, but how long has it been since you've changed the ink cartridges on the printer. If you have done both the nozzle cleaning and print head alignment and nothing appeared on the paper, I don't know what else it could be.
This following suggestion is very rare - if you recently replaced the cartridges and your printer hasn't printed since then, it is possible that you installed them incorrectly; OR perhaps you left the head protector tape on the cartridge. But then it wouldn't "see" the cartridge.
In the "rare" situations, you should try to remove and replace the cartridges to assure that they are properly installed.

In addition to searching for the Model number of your printer, try adding the P/N (part number) which is usually found on the bottom of the printer. I have found that some models of printers can have different drivers especially when they have been manufactured a couple of years apart. When I searched for your printers driver, I came up with a file very similar to yours except that it was called epson12167.exe. Here is the link to that file. I hope it makes the difference:

Hi Susan,
Basic Scanning
You can scan original documents and photos and save them as files on your
computer using the Epson Scan software. You can also launch Epson Scan from
any TWAIN-compliant application, such as Adobe Photoshop
1. Open the document cover and place your original face-down on the scanner
glass, in the front right corner, as shown on page 9.
2. Close the cover gently so you don't move the original.
3. Do one of the following to start Epson Scan:
Double-click the EPSON Scan icon on your desktop.
Double-click EPSON Scan in the Applications folder.
If you are scanning from an application, start your application. Then
open the File menu, choose Import or Acquire, and select your Epson
Select Full Auto Mode as the Mode setting
in the upper right corner. (If you are in
Home, Office, or Professional Mode, you see
a different Epson Scan window.)
5. If you want to restore faded color in a photo
or make other corrections, click Customize.
Then follow the instructions in the next
6. Click the Scan button. The image is scanned

Hi Violet,
There might be a number of reasons due to which your documents get stuck in a printer queue. Overloading and driver issues are the major reason behind this. If you are simultaneously printing hundred of documents then sometimes your printer jobs gets stuck in the printer queue. Then if your Printer drivers are corrupted then also while printing the documents sometimes it might get stuck in the print queue.If You Still Need Assistance Then Follow US For On : Epson Printer Support

By now you have probably figured out that it isn't going to work again. Unfortunately with all epsons and other printers where the printhead is not on the cartridge if you let them sit for an extended time the ink dys up in the printhead and if 3 or 4 cleanings does not make it work it is not likely to ever work again.. My advise is to buy a printer where there are only 2 cartridges (1 black and 1 tricolor) make sure these have the printhead on the cartridge and then if they dry up in the printhead and can't be cleaned by your local cartridge refiller then the worst that can happen is you have to replace the cartridges and not the whole printer. Alternative to that buy a laser printer where the toner cartridges never dry up.

I recently installed CUPS. At first everything looked good, the server started and i was able to add printers with the browser or KDE-Control center.
I tried to add an Epson Stylus C86, which is connected at my USB Port. It really looked good too, cups automatically found the printer on the usb-port and suggested the right driver. I added it, configured it and tried to print a test page.
The job was added correctly in the queue but nothing happened. it was just pending there.
I took a look at the error log but there wasnt anything suspicious, so i set the logging level to debug and tried again. After reading through that (now very long) log again, i still wasnt able to find anything false or any error.
Im a bit clueless now, no errors, smooth install and no signs of anything wrong. OR

Try to do a printhead cleaning and then do a nozzle check to see how the black printhead is printing - if all the nozzles are clear then it is probable that you have a bad cartridge.

There is no way- if the computer has NO available USB ports, buy s USB hub ( a multi outlet USB expander/extender cable). If the computer has no USB ports (outlets) AT ALL- it is ancient, but you might be able to install a USB expansion card into the computer and get external ports.
