Has anyone had any experience with cleaning the printheads on an R220? The yellow jet is clogged even after running several cleaning procedures. I have read about several different methods using everything from distilled water to windex to rubbing alcohol. Any advice someone could provide will be appreciated. Thanx in advance for your help.

Lats time that happened to me i went onto epson website found a local store that dealt with the warranty and took it there and they ended up replacing the whole printer as soon as they resolved the magenta color the rest of the heads went to.

If it's less than a year old you can get it fixed and make sure you still have the receipt.
And you take to the store to get the head sort ask em to empty the waste tank and reset it printer will last longer then (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/thumb.gif)

unfortunatly, I bought this at a computer show, cash deal with no receipt. Plus it was more than a year ago so I need to try and clean it up or go replace it.

you may need to replace it then as when the heads start playing up in these printers r200/r220/r300 ect. You'll constantly run into problems.

But don't throw the printer buy a new printer from a store then in about 3 months time use the reciept from the new printer you bought and then get it fixed you'll have a backup printer then:)

i find using a cis "continuos ink system" helps to keep heads working
constantly ink in system and no air getting in cos it stays wet with ink all the time
never have to clean it and reset it regullar with ssc service utility

I am using a cis. I followed instructions I found at inkjetprinterhelp.us and now its all good. simply shot some water through the head with a syringe and a little piece of tube into a paper towel i put under the print head and 1 head cleaning after I put the carts back in and it worked perfectly. They had wanted me to buy their cleaning solution but I had read that distilled water works well too so thats what i tried. Thanx for the suggestions guys.

You will find Epson do not cover any warranty with a printer that has used a CISS. Try and remember to keep an old set of carts to put in if the printer plays up! R200, R220 and R300 also have a chip set that requires resetting at a pre-determined stage. This will cost.

Just to let you know. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/unsure1.gif) (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)
