Replace the cartridges.
Otherwise, it's unorthodox, but some users have found that this works in your situation. Remove the cartridge, cover the nozzle with a paper towel and use the pointed attachment of a vacuum to clean the dry ink from the cartridge. Be careful not to get ink all over. Then reseat the cartridge and print...

SOURCE: Epson 4800 clogged
I've had similar fun(?) with my Epson. The best solution that I've found is getting by a drafting (or crafts) supply store and getting a jar of Rapiograph, Koohinor, or drafting pen cleaner. With any kind of luck all you'll need to do is 'flood' the print head a bit (let the solution pool around the cartridge intakes), and set a few minutes, then do the Nozzle check.
The next step if that doesn't get it, is to get an old 'empty' cartridge, add a teaspoon or so to the cartridge, then insert as usual- be quick, as the ink inside has been greatly diluted!
Cycle the printer off & on several times allowing 3-5 minutes between the first & second cycles. What happens during cycling is the printer 'charges' then 'empties' the internal ink tubes; the solution is drawn back and forth, washing out the tubes and jets.
Make sure that your cartridges are 20+% full when using them to print. Epson was one of the bad guys that showed empty ink supplies when they were still full.
Hope this helps.

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.
