Epson 4800 Y channel missing: last call before I trash it!

Hi eveyone,

I have a major problem with my Epson 4800. The yellow channel is not working anymore. I made the following operations without succes:

-2x auto nozzle check procedure
-power clean
-yellow cartridge was low, replaced with another one
-removed and cleaned damper
-draw ink from the tube (above damber)
-reprimed damper
-injected windex into yellow channel, printhead is not clogged
-another power clean

Still nothing coming out of the yellow channel.

-last thing I can try is replace the damper with another one from my old 4000 I kept for parts.

If someone have experienced this kind of problem or have an idea, feel free to drop a line.
