Epson 4900 Magic Bullet
A number of years back....maybe 10....when I was struggling to keep an old Epson 3000 (not current R3000) dye printer running...and people were just beginning to wrestle with the clogging issue and little was well established....I bought a "Kit" whose main "magic bullet" was a highly hyped "special" cleaning fluid...highly priced of course.
When I got it I smelled it.....and smelled a rat.....so to speak. To testing it turned out to be the single most universal solvent that exists on this planet.....pure water! Certainly ther most, on a per ounce basis, I ever paid for water!
Subsequent clogs over a decade caused me to have the heads worked on or replaced 3 or more times....at serious expense.
I still have two of the old 3000's....still printing dye ink through them....don't use them much and the ink carts are over 2 years old in both, a BAD combination. I recently went through the resurrection process....both were clogged in the black print head, and one in the color head also. I unplugged the units when the print heads were off the rest pads, filled the rest pads/cup with Windex, and 24 hours later both were printing fine.
"MAGIC BULLET"? I am skeptical that it is, in fact, something quite readily available....for a LOT less money. Do your research on the TONS of info available online, including here, on fixing clogs. Or spend your money. After all, it is only money.
