Took the print head out of the machine itself and immersed it in a diluted cocktail of iso alcohol and ammonia free windex and let it soak for a few days.
Put it all back together and re-primed my cis system and did a head cleaning. Almost everything is back except some of the black and almost all of the yellow in the middle of the nozzle pattern. Not sure if it's worth buying empty refill carts and using them as cleaning carts or not. I love this printer and really don't like what epson has come up with to replace them. And because it's as old as it is, a replacement is going to be pricey unless I go for a refurb.

Not sure what I should do, and I get the distinct impression that I'm taking to myself here...

I've let the print head sit on a damp paper towel for hours, changing it out as needed.
Cleaned the spikes.
Removed the print head and let it soak in a solution of distilled water, windex and iso alcohol and tried to push solution through the spikes.
Can't get any to go. Granted I don't want to push too hard, but nothing is moving in any direction on any of the colors.
Don't know what else to try.
Any ideas? Anyone?

So I'd let it sit for 8-10 hours, did another nozzle check, a lot of the colors came back, kind of.
Black still looked weak. Light magenta was almost nonexistent. Others were kind of spotty. Cyan was the only one that looked flawless.
Head cleaning only made it worse.
I'd cleaned the spikes using isopropyl alcohol and that did nothing. Dug out my original epson cartridges and loaded them up, no change.
So I think my next step is to clean hardcore.
Gonna make a mixture of windex and alcohol and try to push that through the heads. I have a syringe and tubing that came with my waste tank that I believe will work beautifully for this.
Feel I don't really have any other choice. I hate the route epson has taken with their newer hardware.

I've had this printer for a couple years now with a CIS system from the start and everything has been great, until today.
Month or two ago I built a new system and reinstalled all my drivers including the epson drivers of course.
I caught it downloading new firmware and thought I'd stopped it in time, but now I'm not so sure.
I used a trick someone else on this forum showed to find out what firmware is on it now.
As of now it has WB27BB 35.35

What makes me wonder is this, as of today when my black ran out it told me it didn't recognize the cartridge.
I turned it off and back on and it appeared to be fine, showed full level again. All appeared to be good, until I tried printing something.
The black started smearing all over t he place on the right hand side of the print and gradually faded out to nothing.
Bad nozzle check so I did a cleaning, nozzle check looked better, all were there but the color was kinda grey and muddy instead of black.
I could see air in the lines between the carts and the print head, it's been maybe a month since I really used it so I queued 20 prints and let it run.
In the process my yellow, light magenta, magenta, and light cyan all ran out and did the same thing. Only color that still prints is the cyan.
Is it possible that the firmware is resetting the carts to look full, but telling the print head not to print with them?
I'm pulling my hair out here...

I now have the same problem with both the blue and the black cartridge.  The previous "reset" proc doesn't seem to change the problem at all.  Any other solutions?

I installed my CISinks system months ago and it has performed beautifully with no problems.  Ink was running low in May so I refilled all tanks.  I tested the system and photos came out just as they should, no color problems.   I then went away for a month.  Upon my return last week I tried printing but the black was not as it should be.  I cleaned the print heads twice using the regular cleaning.  Black still not printing completely so did a deep cleaning.  Still had missing parts in the black part of test pattern after deep cleaning.

Today I first tried printing a photo.  All was perfect except now the yellow is printing as deep pink.   Checked yellow cartridge.  It is full of yellow ink.  Tried test pattern and the Y section prints out a pink color with a tad bid of a yellow cast to it.

Am using a Canon PIXMA iP4300.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Hello Trevor. The chips arrived today and the one that I put in the yellow cartridge is working. I've sent you an email with some pages I printed today using the drum we spoke of. If you have any more questions let me know and thanks again for your help.

Hello Trevor. I'm unable to find any paperwork or emails regarding that order but I do have the reference number to the chat transcript that I had with Jason Luong which was  C-31412 Drum Issue Attn: Jason.

I hope this can help you find my order number. Thanks for your help.
