    Excellent ….Worked for me except the LCD msg didn’t come up till I released the buttons (CX6400) when the instruction to power off the printer also appeared….when powered up the fault was cleared…but required reboot of XP to get printer online andworking again.

    I can confirm that on a CX6600 with message “Error, please check service manual” the Manual reset (B/W, COLOR and Cancel) while power on did the trick. Thank you so much

    It worked on my CX-6600 perfectly. At least it prints. I may need to find the waste collector and clean it out…….

    this was so awesome to correct my CX6600 printer. Thank You so much. Worked like a charm. Running Mac 10.6.8 ” Error Printer Error ->See your documentation and call service if neccessary” I even called Epson tech support and they said I had to take it in to a service center because what they walked me through didn’t work. But I found this post and presto. It worked!!
