Epson Epson Stylus CX5400

epson cx5400 no output from color or black nozzles

I USE THE RECOMENDED NOZZLE CLEANER FROM THIS FORUM AND IT WORKED FANTASTIC. IT REQUIRED SEVERAL ATTEMPTS BUT IT FINALLY WORKED. FIRST TIME I SOAKED THE PAD (FAR RIGHT UNDER PRINT HEAD) AND INJECTED THE CLEANER INTO THE INK FEED TUBES (UNDER EACH INK CARTRIDGE)AND LEFT IT OVER NIGHT. NEXT DAY STARTED UP PRINTER AND USED NOZZLE CLEAN PROGRAM AND THEN USED VERIFY NOZZLE PROGRAM. I SAW IMPROVEMENT, YELLOW CAME BACK BUT BLUE AND BLACK STILL IFFY. REPEATED THE PROCESS AND SAW BETTER RESULTS, HOWEVER BLACK SILL NOT 100\%. REPEATED PROCESS FOR THE THIRD TIME AND EVERY NOZZLE IS WORKING PERFECTLY. I DECIDED TO KEEP THIS CLEANER ON HAND BECAUSE IT SAVED ME FROM THROWING OUT A PERFECTLY GOOD PRINTER. P.S. TURN OFF PRINTER WHEN NOT NEEDED SO THE NOZZLES WONT CLOG.
