Hi Dana- I finally called Epson to let them know about my clogging problems and they offered the following solution: place several drops of water on the capping station and return printer head to locked position and let set overnight. I did that, ran a nozzle check and saw considerable improvement. I repeated this procedure several more times and now have totally cleared heads with a really solid nozzle check pattern.This seems like a safe and easy solution to the problem unless severe lines are clogged with air and a power clean would help. I did no power clean and now will be sure to print something every 3 or 4 days.You were very helpful and just wanted to report to you what Epson recommended.
Excellent, thanks for the update Frank. I'm glad to hear this fixed your problem, and thanks for sharing the tip!
Best regards and happy printing~ Dana
