Default epson printer help

This is my machine and looking to see what others have used.

My heads are clogged especially the black one as it prints are fuzzy. I have seen a few different cleaners form cartridge ones to ones you take out and put the heads in to soak.

Does anyone have any experience fixing printer heads on an Epson? It is an Epson R1900 A3 printer and I would like to fix it to save some money.

I tried to do a printer a while ago which I think was an Epson. I got one of those cleaning kits with a syringe and it was a disaster, really messy and a massive fail so don't bother with that. The client was writing a book so bought a new laser printer and printed in mono.

I rarely need a colour print so I have bought a HP Laserjet P1102W and i must be on about 3000 sheets or more with no degradation in quality.

Several of our clients use the wide format Epsons, so replacement with a cheap laser is not an option.

I have used a something similar to this http://www.inkmagic.com/epson_clogged_printhead.htm with success, but not always. I usually use distilled water if the printer has been used recently, or with a little acetone mixed in. I have also used commercial cleaning solutions which are very expensive.
