My Epson R1800 is a mind boggling ink sucking monster. In the past when I have not printed for a couple months, it was never a problem. I recently downloaded the new driver for Win 7 to make sure all was well. This time it printed one small print fine, then showed a few low ink cartridges. Even though they didn't look that low they were flagged and it would not print until each one was replaced. So I had to print a few nozzle checks and cleaned a couple times and it requested that I replace each ink. Ones that were not low were showing as low, until I replaced all of them. The blue one, even though brand new, failed the nozzle check and so I cleaned a couple more times. Now all the brand new cartridges that I never printed a single print on are showing 1/4 full. This thing just sucked $150 out of me without printing a single print. I also remember that the old driver, while the inks were flagged as low, would still print. To get the blue fixed, I already put the very bottom of the cartridge in some hot water, which helped, but now I'm going to drop a few drops of 1/2 Windex and 1/2 water on the parking pad and let it sit. I heard that might help.
