I think the printer nozzles are clogged but they do not clear with repeated head cleanings and nozzle checks. Is there anything that I can do to solve the problem? or Do I have to bring it in to a service center for repair?

Here is the best source I've seen for self-cleaning of Espon clogs.
go here:http://www.netwares.com/faq.html
and scroll down and click on #17 which is Epson.  In here you'll find lots of info.  Look especially for the 'Stubborn Clogs' link.

I'm having a similar problem with this printer, and have found others with the problem.  The paper runs through, it sounds as if it is printing but it is not.  All of the ink cartriges are new, and indeed until I installed all new cartriges it was at least printing in black & white.

I ran a head cleaning with the lid opened, and the print head did not appear to line up with the suction boot at the far right.  Maybe there's a way to reset the thing?
