Default Re: Epson T1100 - Please help

HI Gemais,
I have corrected the magenta mis-alignment by removing the cartridges, folding paper towel under the print head and using a syringe, gently flushing each color with rubbing alcohol. Change the towel frequently, and then gently push out the fluid in the head using the syringe full of air only. Then once I did this I replaced the original Epson cartridges and did a test print. The nozzle pattern was back to perfect.
As to the pink haze, I have not done a print to see if that has gone yet. I was told the print head may have dried ink around the nozzle holes that causes the ink to spray at an angle. I am hoping the cleaning I done has fixed it.
I will let you know my results.
