Default No ink (CISS) coming through on Epson 1430 after head flushing

Hey all,

Having some serious issues with my Epson 1430 with CISS kit.

I hadn't used the printer for a couple of months, and when I went to use it recently, after a clean I had no yellow and about half the cyan in the nozzle check (rest were fine). After a few more cleans, nothing changed.

I watched a few videos and it seemed like the head may be clogged. I did a full head flush through the yellow and cyan with cleaning solution. I was very gentle, pushed through the fluid, and pulled out some ink, seemingly unclogging the nozzles. (cleaning solution on paper towel underneath etc).

After a clean and nozzle check, still no yellow, and now less cyan. I thought maybe I didn't do it properly, and out of cleaning solution, used windex (as per a few videos) for another attempt.

This time I did it on all nozzles. But after completing it, I have NOTHING. Completely blank nozzle checks. I tried printing a big cmyk colour page, and again nothing. The printhead moves, and acts likes its printing but no ink appears. Numerous cleans etc. Nothing.

After about a week, I tried one more flush through (side note: the tube i used to connect the nozzle to the syringe came off and got a bit of solution in the cartridge bay - which I immediately cleaned up), but still NOTHING.

Now about 5 days later, my nozzle check has 3 sole black lines, and nothing else.

I'm at a complete loss. Have I damaged the head? Has it dried out? is there a way to purge the ink through? CISS lines have no air and ink carts seem to full.

Any help, advice, reccomendations,would be greatly appreciated

Thanks
