Hello, I wanted to share as a testament to Epson printers the experience I had with mine recently. I have a PX-5600 (R2880) which has sat unused for about a year. Not only was it unused, but had been shipped by freight from Japan to Seattle, then checked on a plane from Seattle to Honolulu, drug around the airport and finally brought to my residence. When I finally plugged it in again it showed low ink so I had to replace a few cartridges (you gotta cut off some plastic stubs to get American cartridges to work on a Japanese machine), and then it had some plugged up nozzles. At this point I was kind of worried that shipping this thing here and there, and letting it go unused for so long may have been a bigger hassle than it was worth. But after running the 'auto head cleaning' function three times, the clogs are gone and the printer is ready to print again. Yay! Here are the test prints: The software actually directed me to replace the ink cartridge with a fresh one and proceed to manual nozzle cleaning after the first test print was done, but instead I put in a new piece of paper and ran the auto cleaning again, which came up daisies the second time. I ran it a third time just to be sure. When I stopped using this printer a year ago, I didn't do anything special to it. And when I shipped it all over hell and back, I just left it in its original box. After this experience with the Epson, I would say they did a damn good job building this machine!
