Help! My Epson Photo 960 was printing fine until tonight.I replaced the Magenta cartridge with an OEM Epson cartridge. I ran the cleaning utility 4 times. Ran the nozzle check. One of the black grids is barely visible, and none of the yellows are. Do I need new print heads? Should I just buy a new printer?

I had problems with my Epson Printers clogging their heads and sometimes doing too many cleaning cycles makes things worse. I tried searching for unclogging Epson printers in Google and found some websites that had helpful info on unclogging the heads but I had to go through a lot of trouble, I made windex cleaning cartridges and I also taped up paper towels folded to about 1/2" wide to the area that the print head crosses over and soaked it and passed the head over it untill it was free of ink to help. sometimes you can soak the pad where the printhead parks with windex or distilled water and unclog the head but I got fed up with the constant clogging and threw out my 870 a couple of days ago. And bought a Canon but try this web page before you give up. http://www.eddiem.com/photo/printer/unclog/unclog.html
