This site has the best information I was able to find about how to clear a clogged Epson printer nozzle:
The first suggestion listed -- putting distilled water on the printhead sponges -- is what worked for me.
By the way, except for the tanks that came with R200, I never used Epson ink, and the printer ran just fine. Unfortunately, apparently the newer Epson inkjets use only Epson ink. The difference is that a complete set of generic R200 inks cost about as much as a single tank of Epson ink. So, I sure hope this R200 lives for at least another 3 years.
Here's my original review: Excellent printer. I purchased it only for the CD/DVD printing feature. However, I decided it'll also replace my Epson Stylus Photo 870 which, after 4 years of heavy use, continues to produce excellent results even with off-brand ink. By comparison, the R200 print quality is even better.
Here's some info that might be useful if you're about to buy the R200, or are still shopping:
It takes about 3 minutes to print 100% of the disk surface.Read more ›
The R200 not only prints directly onto the discs, but is also a quality photo printer. You can print out crisp images with that function as well as carry out normal day-to-day tasks like homework and other documents. It's great because the printer has an extra USB port on the front of the machine for easy hookup to a laptop. The software for the printer is easy to install and there really was no printer alignment necessary. It did all the work for me.
The only thing you really need to buy, if you don't already have one, is a USB cable because it doesn't come with one packed in the box. Yeah, I know. I was disappointed in that too, but the features made up for that. Speaking of features, in order to successfully print onto a disc, you must use an Ink-Jet printable disc. Otherwise, you'll have a disc with a pool of ink on it.
So as not to bastardize more expensive R300,R500 photo stylus line, Epson doesn't exactly tout R200's resolution. Note, resolution specs are not on the box of the R200, but are big and bold on the box for the other R-series models. The printers in the R-series are identical, except you must print from your PC with the R200, it doesn't connect direct to your digicam, or have media slots like the R300, 300M... If, like me, you tweak sharpness and adjust color levels - always, in a photo editor, before printing - you'll never use those features. Save your money; go with the R200.
As an added bonus this printer has the ability to produce professional quality graphics and text directly onto printable CDRs.Read more ›
But printing on this machine is not effortless. It has many quirks which can sabotage your efforts unless you make accommodations. It's important to learn how the machine works first, and do so with great care because a mistake can render it useless (I speak from experience). The results are worth it.
This printer requires a great deal of TLC, plus genuine Epson inks (which cost more than off brands), and some patience. Many of the negative reviews here describe symptoms which I have experienced, but which can be avoided by just being careful. Of course, a printer probably shouldn't require that of the users, but the results are truly spectacular if you play along.
Most of the problems can be attributed to genuine design flaws -- some of them quite small but with great consequences. For example, there is a little arrow on the printer which is used to align the disc tray before printing. It matches up with a printed arrow on the disc tray itself. But the arrow on the printer is simply an area of indented plastic, making it almost invisible. When you get this printer, the first thing to do is make that arrow visible by putting a piece of tape or something on it.
If you don't make the alignment arrow visible, you will inevitably push the disc tray in too far and expose another regrettable design flaw: the disc tray has a clear plastic leader which helps it find it's path inside the printer.Read more ›
