    How do I unblock printer nozzles ???

    Hope someone can help.

    I have an Epson R300, and it has been sat (with the heads un-parked) for about 3 months - I hardly ever needed to use it.

    Anyway, I need to use it now for CV's and such, but the nozzles are pretty much completely clogged up.

    I want to unblock them, but have no idea where to start - I've tried numerous "cleaning cycles" to no avail, and a new print head costs about the same as a new printer.

    Any ideas please ??? I have cleaning fluid that I used to use when re-filling an old printer, but no idea how I could get that into the system.

    Any suggestions gratefully received.

    Thanks

    How do I get the print heads out though ???

    It's easy enough to say "soak them", but I don't know how to remove them.

    Thanks again

    Ive never tried this but it may help

    http://www.ink2u.co.uk/index.php?mai...h2sg6qutu4mft5

    are u leaving it between cleaning cycles. about 30 minutes a time should be enough. Allows the solid ink to soften before trying again.
