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
