I have a problem with my Magenta in my Epson Stylus Pro 9600. I've been away for 3 months and come back to do a nozzle check and found that my nozzles have become clogged up. Carried out a head clean 12 times a power wash twice and the nozzle check results show that all colors seem fine now apart from the Magenta... I've wasted plenty of ink on trying to fix the problem but I'm pulling my hair out on what to do!?!? Since I called up Epson they have told me my warrenty is over and that the problem seems to be with the whole head part... which is costing me a lot (ouch).

Probably dried ink has it stuck in the carrier. Try using an eyedropper and dripping some alcohol along the edges, and repeat periodically several times to let it soak in and loosen the ink, overnight should do it, then try again to press the release tab and wiggle the cartridge firmly until it lifts out.
The ink should come out of the cart. if not the cart is the problem at this point try anothere magenta if that does not shore it up then you need to then start looking at the print head where it goes it itself now the store you bought the ink from will give you a replacement no questions asked sometimes even if you dont got the reciept. Try those steps you be glad you did.
The Agfa Sherpa is not manufactured by Epson. Both Epson and Agfa buy and retag their printers from Mutoh. I do not know if the 44 is the same as Epson 7600 or 9600, but it should fit the same cartridges.
If the printer does not accept the cartridges, that means that there is something different in the software stored in the Epson cartridge chip.
In this case you will be only able to use only Agfa or Mutoh Falcon cartridges.
It's NOT a cartridge if this works... I had a similar problem with a 9600 I bought on eBay that had been inoperable over 18 months. Three colors would NOT clear up after multiple power cleanings. Epson support politely solved the issue at no charge on the phone... he had me drop a few drops of warm water on the pad the printhead rests on when not printing. You have to move the printhead to the left to do that by moving up the little lever near the cutter. The pad is easier to reach with a long eye dropper. I used very warm water- not boiling. I replaced the printhead over the warm water pad for an hour. Then I repeated the process and let it be for another 60 minutes. Then I did a nozzle check and what was gummed up yellow, cyan, and magenta nozzles became clear and it's worked fine since. Good luck!
