For what it's worth. Whenever you do a head cleaning your putting wear and tear on the print head. Too many people do a cleaning every week when they are not printing hoping to keep the heads unclogged. This is a mistake.. I have a 7800. I don't print often and when I'm not printing the printer is off, sometimes for months. When I want to print, I turn it on, the printer does a nozzle check and we are ready to go. Never a clogged nozzle and I have been printing this way for years without a problem.

Well that is strange - you might be lucky. You would think that Epson themselves would have some guidelines about avoidance of clogging.
