Epson Workforce 3520 Error 0xf3

Hi,

I picked up an Epson Workforce 3520 for $10, along with several unopened ink tanks. The printer powers on, but stops on "error 0xf3" as soon as the carriage reaches the rightmost home position. I've read a few brief articles, one indicating I should rock something back and forth 15-20 times (although it wasn't very specific...) however, I'm asking if anyone around here has any familiarity with these Workforce units. I'd love to get one up and running.

I also purchased a Workforce 3620 and Stylus NX515 which both print completely blank pages after print head cleanings. Is it safe to assume that these printers may be suffering from clogged or disconnected ink-vacuum tubes? I remember back in the day taking apart and cleaning *three* Stylus CX5400 units with clogged ink vacuum tubes. As soon as these tubes were cleared, the printers worked as normal.

Any advice is of course appreciated!
