Epson Epson Stylus Color 740

Epson 740 No Print

Hi there. I had a problem with clogged nozzles on my Epson 740 so I ordered your cleaning kit (good service, reasonable price). I did the first part (put solution on the sponge) and let it sit overnight. That didn't seem to help a lot so I moved on to the second part of pushing cleaning soution through the nozzles with the syringe. That seemed to go ok and there really was no difficulty - I didn't feel much pressure as I pushed on the syringe plunger. I let it sit overnight and then installed fresh cartridges. I used the Epson procedure of replacing outdated cartridges so that it would go through the ink recharing cycle. I also did a couple of cleaning cycles. I then printed a nozzle check page. Nothing on the paper (maybe one very small faint blue/cyan streak). I did a couple of more cleaning cycles and another nozzle check page. Nothing. I repeated the clean/check a few more times but still nothing. Any ideas as to what I should do now?
