epson 810 head repair experiences

Hi to all
Like to share some experiences in appreciation of all the great help and tips found here.

To make things short, I tried all the methods to cure a "no-printout" problem. Even to the point of removing the head and trying to squirt alcohol through the cartridge ink posts using a syringe. The black colour was really clogged up - even after the glycol, heated distilled water, etc treatment. With a heavy heart, I placed the head back and had a constant red LED (middle) on.

Well, passing by a dump area, I saw a discarded 830. Removed the head and squirted some window cleaner through the ink post. Perfect!

The compatible ink in question was from Nippon. Perhaps the brand is more common in the Asia Pacific region. It must've dried up something fierce!
