I have had one of these come my way as 'dead'
Usual story- simply not used enough and the heads have dried.
I have over the past months off and on - tried various clean -up routines- including a 'head pump that I mad from a syringe and bit of tube.
So far no joy - it no print.
So now I am looking for a dawing or plane of the Head to dis-assamble.
Fixyourownprinter.com did not offer anything
anywhere else to look good people?

See if there anything here click here the advice for some printers may well work with others as well.

Thank you BD- nothing much there
I also looked quickly at the SSC lg Epson Utility forum- needs further looking into though
Will keep this one up for a while longer.

My old mate Percy Verance came to the rescue in the end.
Using my 'pump thingy' I worked over each head several times with alchol based window cleaner and a touch of washup - leaving each to soak under pressure of the gadget over night.
A set of cheapo carts from the Saturday ,Market
and ZIPPO she works both stand alone and via
All we have to do now is to keep it fresh - which is mote than the previous owner did evidently.

I like Epsons but one thing I have noticed is if unused they dry out, its not a major hassle, I just print something out once a month and thats enough to stop it blocking up.

Me too -I dont print much these days on the main[R300] as I am more into slide shows - but we give a run to keep it sweet and will be doing so with my allinone 'freebie'
