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!

If you have tried 5 or 6 head cleans, left for about 10 hours and then tried 3 or 4 more without noticeable result then you probably need a head cleaning solution. Google for stockist near your area or try this one:

if it has ink in it, then remove the black cartrige and take a damp cloth with water and wipe the print head,( once you wipe it a few times, you should see black ink on the cloth)

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.
