We have just "serviced" the printer according to a report downloaded some time ago.It said to lay some folded kitchen paper over the top of the pump cap, moisten it with solvent (we used ammonia) and with the printer disconnected moving the print head over the paper. Leaving it for 5 to 10 mins, removing the paper and repeat, leaving it for just 1 min. I then saw some cellophane over the yellow nozzle in the print head and removed that. It now tells me the print head is worn out. It cannot be, as it has not done very much work. How do we get the print head out, please?

Hi - According to the Epson manual that error indicates that paper may be blocking movement of the print head.
Turn off the printer, then open the cover and remove any jammed paper or foreign objects. Turn the printer on. If the lights continue to flash you're most likely going to need a dealer service.
Hope it's the paper.
In Windwos go in to Control Panel > Printers. Right click you printer and click properties. You should be able to do headclean. It might not work 1st time but after 3 or 4 attempts it should clear. If not then you will need some fluid to unlblock the heads.
Have you tried a cleaning cycle? If not, try one. Now run a nozzle check using the status monitor (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select nozzle check). Is there any sign of ink on the paper. Try up to three cleaning cycles. If ink is now flowing, but not yet perfectly, don't carry out any more cleaning cycles. Just leave the printer for 24 hours (to allow any air in the print head to disperse). Then repeat the cleaning cycle/wait process. It may take a while to restore a perfect nozzle check print. If these actions produce no positive results, report back.
Do some head cleanings using your driver utilities
Go to control panel>printers and faxes>right click on the stylus c66 and go to printing preferences>go to maintenance tab and do head cleaning for about three times and then try to print
Take the cartridge out and put it back in then try to print, if it is still the same try cleaning the print heads>control panel>right click on c66 and go to printing
preferences>maintenance tab>print head cleaning>do it 3 times and then try to print
