RE:epson cx5400 printing problem

great info Wes!!! cleaned waste ink well for fun, took out printhead and cleaned it both not necessary, what a mess! Then I found your site. The tube was unhooked so I tried hooking it up again and disconnected the other half. So I cleaned all ends and used silicone for adhesion. Three days later the printer didn't work. Tube was unhooked again, this time I took the top off the printer, much easier to work. The discharge tube was plugged so I used a long floral wire and WD-40 to clean it. Worked slick as a whistle and the thin nozzle on the spray can fits right into the tube. Printer is like brand new.
