Default New Epson and new CIS kit, bad nozzle check

Hey, anyone here can help me with sublimation printing?

I ordered a new Epson WF 7210 and a CIS kit from CityExpress (UK). Since friday I just can't seem to get the nozzle check to give a good result.

First of all, I followed the instructional videos and manual 100%. After two days of priming and removing air I figured the print head had to be clogged so I took it out and cleaned it with solution, as well as the nozzles (with a syringe, blew them out with ink cleaner).

I tried everything I could find but still no success as you can see in the pictures attached. Is there some kind of magic trick I'm missing here?

Hi. When did you take the pictures, because I can definitely see air bubbles in those ink lines.

Did you try a nozzle check with the cartridges that came with the printer? That will tell you if it is the printer or more likely the CIS.

CIS are a joke - the vast majority of them use more ink trying to get them to work then ever used actually making products. Ink companies must laugh their asses off everytime someone buys one.

Te pictures are from today and I just finished clearing the air bubbles in the tubes.

Is it still possible to test with the original cartridges?

After cleaning the printhead I'm pretty certain it's not clogged anymore. But I have a feeling the cartridge is just not feeding ink to the head.
