Question about Epson STYLUS R230 InkJet Photo Printer
Befory you toss the printer, try this!
Take a syringe, 1" piece of rubber tubbing that will fit over the head input snugly, (auto parts house stocks some that works fine). Fill the syringe with a good head cleaner, slightly warm it in the microwave (try 5 seconds to start). Attach to nozzle, gently pull back just a bit, then apply a little pressure. If it accepts the fluid, STOP, You can clean the syringe, add the proper color ink, inject just a small amount. reinstall a known good cartridge, clean heads couple times checking results, if ANY streaks or color appears, clean again! Sometimes letting it sit overnight allows the head to fill with ink. I have had very good luck with this method, also some will not clean properly, just depends on how bad it is clogged.

I have found some rubbing alcohol on a paper towel, set on top of the print heads will sometimes loosen the grunge. If I recall you can remove the print head assembly on an Epson, so you might try soaking it in a bowl of rubbing alcohol. Make sure you fully dry the print head before placing it back in use. Run your cleaning option a couple of times to recharge the head after cleaning.
