Question about Epson Stylus Pro 4000-PS InkJet Printer
I have an Epson 4000 which has had a very stubborn clogged nozzle for months now . It is the magenta nozzle and I have tried many different type of fixes and cleanings and it is still clogged. What can I do?This is one of the original early 4000's(5yrs old) and I have produced many beautiful prints with it.
I live in Denver and have tried keeping the humidity up but that hasn't worked either
I had the same problem with an epson 4450 pro. I tried almost anything, wasted litres of precius ink. The problem was with the vacuum pump (the one used while cleaning - it removes waste ink from caping station) - one of it's tubes was broken. Replaced the whole assembly unit easily in less than one hour. I ordered the part directly from chinese manufacturer/vendor (125 USD, including DHL delivery).
It's difficult to diagnose but possible. For me it started with constant clogging especially of black and cyan - even every 5-10 A3 pages. After a longer pause in working the printer started to print yellow with magenta and cyan with black mixture, and after two pages it was printing clearly again. If you take out the right side cover to see the pump's outlet tubes there should be dirty ink flowing in both of them during cleaning/power cleaning. For me only one was transporting the waste ink. This was the cause of all my headaches when it comes to this printer, luckily for couple months now it's fine. Hope this helps someone.

I've cleaned the capping station as recommended by R A smart my supplier of sawgrass ArTainium inks but the nozzles are still clogged, this started a few days ago when the yellow started showing showing magenta in it's print out.
I'm at a loss as to what to do next as the print outs are now looking worse.

I have an Epson 4000 which I started using new in Sept 2004 and my magenta is clogged too. I've gone through 2 maintenance tanks trying to clear it, (and LOTS of ink), but the magenta is still blocked. I even tried this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NR8g4qUAJc trick but it didn't seem to work. I hope you have better luck.
