I had the same problem as nick.I followed Paul's advice and this worked perfectly to reset the printer, however I find that I now can't access the scanner.
Can anyone help please?

My printer showed a dialog box with "Parts inside your printer are at the end of their service life. See your printer's documentation for details. Contact your dealer." The printer wouldn't run. I now have it reset but need to change the waste ink pads. Where are they and how I procede?

Thanx a lot Paul. I have been struggling for hours trying to get the SSC software to work on this CX6600, no go! I decided to have a look on the ol' faithful site & here I am again! It's up & running again. Thanx again!

Hello, my cx6600 has 'Printer error and call service.." message. This error message began after I replaced the empty blue cardtrige. I did not click the 'blue' cardtrige before I push back the cardtrige cover and close the scanner. The the printer get a loud noise.
Thanks for any input.

HALF the problem is solved thankfully to your posting. I got rid of the "parts are end of service life" and just tried printing those instructions. Printed PERFECT. However, when I lift the lid to see ink storage, it returns to red exclamation point and error message. If I close lid, it prints ok again. This will work until, alas, I need to make an ink refill - then what? I had just replaced blk day before problem and cartridge seems struck. Thanks for advice!

Bit of a useful guide to adding an external waste ink tank for the CX6600 here:

http://www.continuousink.info/forum/kb.php?mode=article&k=7

I was forced to work out how to do it when I got a "faulty" unit cheap for my other half so I figured I might as well do a proper job of it..

Hope that helps..

Hi,

My cx6600 has been shooting blanks. The ink cartridges are full and I've run it through repeated head cleanings and other tests to no avail. Are there any other steps I can take to get it to print simple black ink or is it a goner? Thank you, R.

My cx6600 was printing and scanning ok when a co worker decided to use the reset process as described on this site. After they performed the ...(press the small button with the triangle and the color button together hold down, swithch off then re-start keeping buttons in
when screen stops flshing letgo of all buttons, press colour button,
then press off and hold untill it switches back on)... Process the printer will no longer work all I get is the see your documentation or take your printer to nearest epson service center message.

If anyone could help with a way to reset our printer it sure would help we only had it for about a year and it seems kinda of strange that it would need to be replaced this soon.

Thanks

In my case: (german)
When I power on the printer, it said:

"Druckerfehler -> Lesen Sie in der Dokumentation nach, und wenden Sie sich gegebenenfalls an den Kundendienst."

The documentation says to power off and on again and if the problem persists, I should really call the service.

The (stupid) printer utility in Window$ says parts of the printer have exceeded their lifetime...

Anyway: The procedure described by Paul, does indeed work and "reset" the printer. For the accurate:

1.) power on (error message)
2.) press the "Stop (triangle)" and the "Colour copy" button and hold them
3.) press the power button to power off, still hold 2.)
4.) press the power button to power on, still holding 2.)
5.) the LEDs start to flash, then they stop to flash and the red exclamation mark starts to flash. Now release 2.)

6.) the LED should say: "Init EEprom"
7.) now press and hold the power button until the printer powers off and powers on again.

The "error message" is gone, the "protection counter" (ssc utility) is back to 0, the printer works so far.
Probably, I'll have to replace the sponge.


CX6600 resetting didn't cure the problem... by chofujohn (2/12/07 10:47 AM) reply + / -
I'm ready to throw this CX6600 over the balcony rail!! Like others this printer just quit shooting ink. It operates in a normal manner in every other respect, including scanning to email or file, but when trying to print ink from ANY source it won't produce. You can hear the heads maneuvering under the hatch, but no ink. Hmm...

So, I've followed the "resetting" instructions over and over again. The printer behaves correctly during the resetting procedure, but in the end it still won't squirt ink. The cartridges are brand new. I threw out the old ones that were 3/4 full.

I should also mention that all three of my printers in the house are exhibiting abnormal behavior and they all started at about the same time, which should be a little better than anecdotal evidence that what ever is happening might be relating to all three printers. The printers are the CX6600, HP Photosmart 8450, and an HP 990CSE. All have been great printers and none has ever been used to excess. The 990cse is the only one with more than 3 sets of cartridges through it.

I've since learned that there are some "worms" that corrupt mime files relating to printers. The worms are transmitted via email and to this point I've not been able to isolate the culprit. I've deleted and reinstalled all the printers, which also did not work.

Any help in finding a direction would be appreciated. Again, the resetting of the CX6600 didn't alleviate the problem and I'm only now starting to address the issues with the HP's. They will print, but without ANY accuracy at all. One prints in amber and the other prints in reds/green (no blue).

Most Frustrated,

John Dent

I have posted elsewhere on this forum. I cannot believe the numerous problems consumers are having with Epson printers. I have had 2 so far and my latest is a RX600 and I have had nothing but problem after problem with it since almost day one. LCD went out, won't print even with new ink cartridges, that service error nonsense. Can't print anything if one color goes empty. I see by reading this forum it is not only the RX600 but many other Epsons that are causing many problems ,we consumers should not have to be putting up with. I always though Epson products where one of the best but I must say as of late I really am beginning to doubt it.
Why doesn't Epson own up to the fact they produced some garbage printers and make it right by us consumers? As it stands now I will not even consider any Epson product in the future.

Is there a class action law suit begun and if so what is the link?

On alert messagegParts inside your printer are near the end of their service life,h it may be better to change your ink-absorbent pad. This is the fundamental solution to the error message. The error message is displayed because the ink-absorbent pad is nearly full. You can erase the message by resetting the hardware. But there is a risk one day ink overflows from ink-absorbent pad. Epson (USA) recommends professional repair with this error message on their web site.

Apparently epson say there is no reset button!

Thanks a million for this thread!

I guess it does need fixing after all!

hey i was wondering i had just found an epson cx6600 in the trash in perfect condition it turns on but there is no ink in it and i get an error message telling me to install ink and i cant get it to go away. is there anyway i can still scan with no ink in the printer, thanks


Using it as a scanner... by chofujohn (5/13/07 11:04 AM) reply + / -
Hi,

In a word the answer is "yes". I've used my CX6600 as a stand alone scanner and that function works perfectly. It's not a great scanner, but that's typical of multi function printers.

I just broke down and bought a Canon Pixma MP960. My priciple motivation for buying my first Canon is quality and engineering integrity. It has been frustrating all these years to dispose of multi color ink catridges that are empty of only one color. The Canon has 7 individual color cartridges. When a color gets low a light comes on to illuminate that specific cartridge. How cool is that?

I've considered going to laser again, but given the color toner cartridges are $85 a piece and their are 6 of them in the HP color laser printer I just couldn't justify it given how little printing I do anymore.

Later,

John

Information update. I searched the web more, and now realize if the alert message is the only problem with your machine, you only need to reset your machine following the process which PAUL wrote (first reply on this thread). Sorry if you followed my former message.

According to someonefs website, who called EPSONfs technical support, the error message is displayed when certain times (for example, 500 times, I am not sure.) of head cleaning has been done. I guess for most of users, the alert message comes far earlier than a reasonable replacement timing.

Before you send your machine to service center or abandon it, you can do these:
Open your machine, and check the ink-absorbing pad, that is, a long black sponge at the very bottom. And look in the gutter under the sponge. If these parts are good (still able to absorb disposed ink), all you have to do is to reset.




Epson called and the tech told me... by chofujohn (5/22/07 7:12 AM) reply + / -
Epson called and the tech told me that my print head was clogged and that they could not get it unclogged. I would require a new print head at a cost of $454.00. I asked him if he was joking and he said he was serious. A new CX6600 printer is $157 on Amazon today. I told him he and Epson should be ashamed and that I'll never buy another Epson product ever again.

That's the end of the story for me, except that I'll be writing a long letter to Epson and explaining this process to them so they might be able to improve their service. It isn't reasonable that a print head should become so clogged after one year and less than two reams of paper that the printer would become a throw away.

I've bought another all in one. This one is the Canon MP9600 and the jury is still out as to whether it will stand the test of time. I can report that it has the best ink system that I've ever seen. FINALLY, when I run out of one color I won't have to dispose of other colors. It has seven ink tanks and they light up when they get low/empty. The printer is heavier, quieter and certainly more user friendly than any of my HP's or this last Epson. I think I might have a winner with the Canon. When I go back and read reviews on Canon printers they have always been highly rated. I guess I had just fallen into that trap of brand consciousness and had lost my objectivity.

Good luck to you who are sticking with your Epson. If my new Canon takes a nose dive I'll report it here.

Regards,

John


Where can you purchase the sponge or other parts? by anneg (5/22/07 11:54 AM) reply + / -
Where does one purchase the ink absorbing sponge? (or other parts)

I have similar problems as previous posts (error message and printer won't run)
but it is clear that the sponge is really dirty.

Thanks for all your posts and help.

(Are landfills crammed with old Epson printers?)


Re: epson cx6600 needs reseting by moe (5/22/07 3:52 PM) reply + / -
I have never replaced a sponge because they never need replacing. Truth is they soak up very little ink. Most of it congeals under the sponge. I just scooped up about 4 oz. of it out of a 5400 I'm working on. That quit printing because the purge tube was clogged with ink as well and popped off. Sponge was hardly discolored. The printer estimates how much ink is supposed to be in it by the number of cleaning cycles and gives you the message. What you should do is download the SSC utility which is mentioned 762 times on this forum and reset it.


Re: epson cx6600 needs reseting by emery419 (6/10/07 8:45 AM) reply + / -
I have a similar problem, however my Epson CX 6600 has stopped just printing the color ink, the black works fine. I tried the reset procedure, but the printer didn't behave like the instruction said it should. I guess I didn't do it correctly. The scanner works fine, just the color ink won't work. I've cleaned the printheads over and over to no avail.


Re: Re: epson cx6600 needs reseting by chofujohn (6/11/07 7:56 AM) reply + / -
Welcome to the club! I had Best Buy send mine off to have it diagnosed and I got a phone call telling me the print head was clogged and they could not unclog it. I was told the print head would have to be replaced at a cost of $445. After having a good chuckle he said he'd send it back to Best Buy for pickup and that is where it sits today.

The Canon MP9600 is a vastly superior machine in all the reviews and from my perspective it is quicker, quieter, better printing and more solid all in one. When I eventually pick up the CX6600 I will be disassembling the print head to see what I can see. Maybe a bath is some acid will help.

Won't print, butnot getting any error report by Barbiejill (6/26/07 6:22 PM) reply + / -
Is anyone able to give direction concerning printer that will not print...even tho it sounds as if it's printing and is using ink. took it to cartridge world, guy there said it's usually the long tube filled with ink, but not so. tube clean. tried re-setting according to paul's instruction. Have downloaded the ssc utility, can't seem to get help from that. I really don't like Epson at this point either. Last night I scanned a doc, had been making copies before that, and following scan, no ink on paper.
thanks anyone


Re: Won't print, butnot getting any error report by chofujohn (6/27/07 7:50 AM) reply + / -
Your printer is displaying the same symptoms as mine. I had mine diagnosed by Epson (via Best Buy) and they are saying the print head is clogged and that they can't unclog it. The replacement print head is $445. The printer cost $225 new. Please let me know when this starts to make ANY sense at all because I'm picking up the broken printer today and will be tossing it off a bridge on the way home just to see the splash.

The canon 9600 multi is a superior printer and from all the reviews I've read I'm hoping it will last longer than the year I got out of the Epson.

Hi again dudes....

look, im seriously thinking about throw my CX6600 by the balcony... i've no more ideas...

like i describe to you in my last post my printer hung after a printing process, and the unique way to turn it off was pulling the power lead of the wall.

Now im trying to keep it alive but it's not easy. i've tried all the solutions that you say but no success. My printer did not flash any light neither LCD. Only the config button and the card reader indicator lights up, when i press the power button with B/W+COLOR+(TRIANGLE) buttons pressed, for a while.

what else can i do? throw it by the window, or there's another solution process.

please help me dudes!!!!

Does this unit need trashed when the tube is full?

Just a thought but be careful as to the concentration of ammonia... You don't want more than a couple of drops per 100ml or you'll corrode the inkjet nozzles.

Look in the paper tray. You will see a green and brown pad. Clean those pads with a damp q-tip. That will ususally fix it.

This is what the pad looks like



The C60 has the same paperfeed system as the Cx3200

This is an on going problem for me as well. I have tried to follow all the instruction to resetting according to Paul's message to no avail. I'm about to call this all in one printer a piece of junk. There is no ink printing on the paper but the ink levels indicate the ink levels are going down. After I reset the printer the first message continues to come up look at the adjuster level, regarding envelopes. I hit okay and then it takes me thru the all the diffrent checks for the printer to go thru. I has at one time after many attempts printed a nozzle check. What am I doing wrong, still not able to print after it goes thru all the motions and sounds like it is priniting.

Paul, you are a LIFE SAVER! Thanks so much for the good advice. It worked for me and though I got a message saying there was a problem connecting with the scanner, I tried it anyway and it worked.

Again, I'm so grateful. I just don't have the $$ for a new printer and when I got that error message and call service, I, too, panicked.

Life is now good again

Hi guys, after reseting following Paul's instruction, which succesfully unblocked my printer counters, printer prints no problems. But its scanner doesn't work anymore. When try a message saying the scan cannot be found appears. Any suggestion to recover ?
Many many thanks.
David

Tried Paul's solution 3 x's w/o success. Cleaned heads with alcohol, checked the tube and it looks clear; still no print. Maybe it's time to look for a new Cannon printer.

Found another idea from "Tokyo".... this worked for me...oh what we can accomplish when we all work together! Happy New Year
Re: Epson CX6600 printing blank pages SOLUTION by Tokyo (3/7/09 3:45 AM) reply

I've had a CX6600 for four years and worked great. Suddenly started printing blank papers. Did all the standard troubleshooting per Epson. No luck. Epson recommended shipping to repair.

Did my own troubleshooting. IT's a simple fix. The tube from the ink tray becomes detached from the tube feeding the pump.

1. Press Setting and go to #5 replace cartridge. This will move the cartridge rack out of the way. On the right you'll see a small rectangle ink tray. You'll need to move the small plastic stop (has a spring underneath) to the right. This will allow you to see the feeder tube from this tray. Reconnect using a needle nose pliers.

2. Run the nozzle head cleaning routine a couple times.

After I did this, the printer was back in great condition.

The constant jarring over the years causes the tube to finally disconnect.

Paul - you're an absolute star! Had years of trouble free printing, then got the "Printer error - call for service message" Used your solution, worked like a dream.

Paul, You just saved my marriage of 41 years. This is my wife's printer and she gave me the ultimatum to fix it or get me a new one, if not "find the door mister". Well I have about 14 new cartridges and dang if I was going to dump them. Your information was SPOT ON. Thanks a million.

Re: epson BX300F needs reseting by xcode (12/22/13 2:49 AM) reply + / -
My printer epson bx300f. I have got an error for this printer. the "power" and the "auto" buttons are blinking. the printer display shows "printer error" - "Drückerfehler" on german. i have tryed this method by PAUL
http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/inkjet/31526

but it doesnt helps, becouse if i push the both buttons "Stop (triangle)" and the "Colour copy", the Power button is inactive, that i cant turn the printer off.

For information, the printer ask if you try to turn of the power butten, to push 1 or 2, to confirm that all fax data will be lost.

Please help me some how.

p.s. SSC cant reset- reason is a "unknown state" of the printer
