Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
If it is still under warranty , call for a technician to do a warranty check
there are some printer manufacturers that have an inbuilt program that will cut out the machine if anything but genuine cartridges are used
under warranty or not , there is a clause in consumer law that states , the unit has be be replaced or money refunded it the machine is not fit for the purpose or the unit fails before a reasonable of period of time in use
one round of cartridges is not a reasonable expectation of the time in use not is it fit for the purpose if it will not work after one round of cartridges

SOURCE: mfc 665-cw magenta clogged?
Do you use some very cheap generik ink?
If your ink wont match the specifications of the needed one clogging is the result.
If you have tried several cleaning there is unfurtunately nothing more what you can do: the ph is dead (for mag).

One of the possible reason why you can't print black in white because Epson ink jet printers require all of the ink cartridges to have ink in them in order to print any color, black and white, or grayscale images. More than that Epson printers contain a permanent print head that needs to be charged with all colors to work. Even when users are printing black text only, a small amount of color ink is used to keep the print head charged for color printing and prevent air bubbles from entering the color print nozzles which can damage the print head.

1. Get compressed air
2. Run Printhead under HOT water, do not worry about contacts getting slightly wet.
3. Blow compressed air with straw attachment into screens where the cartridge nozzle sits on printhead. then let it sit and dry.
4. reinstall print test page
5. if this fails open paint/photoshop and print a page of the color that is not printing correctly. rinse and repeat until colors flow freely.
I have several ip4300s and I have yet to give up the ghost on a printer with a clog ujsing this method.

The Epson CX9400F printer seems to require replacement of all the color ink cartridges, even if only the Black is empty.
I print almost exclusively in Black, but with my first change of Black, I was forced to change all the color. At the time I thought Epson did not provide completely filled color ink cartridges.
Just yesterday, I replaced Black and the printer complained it did not recognize the rest of color cartridges. So I replaced all the other color ink cartridges and now it works fine.
You might want to check out www.clickinks.com for cheaper, mail order alternatives which are Epson ink compatible, if you are not in a hurry.

try this link : I followed the directions and fixed the problem. the instructions that came with the new printhead weren't really complete.
Here's essentially all I did for my fix - Opened the printer top, turned the printer off. Removed the "bad" printhead, cleaned the metal contacts on the printhead and printer with windex. Closed the printer. Turned it on. waited for it to reset. Opened the printer. Turned the printer off again. Installed the printhead. Closed the lid. Plugged the printer in again. When it was ready I accessed the HP toolbox and alligned the printheads and cleaned the printheads. It worked. Here's a link with photos.
