Epson R1800 - suddenly, a strong magenta cast

Apr 4, 2018
A sudden fault has occurred, giving every print a magenta cast. This is what I've done so far:

Turned the printer off for an hour.
Checked the nozzle print test -ALL OK good clear patterns on all nozzles
Printed a ink purge test sheet - All inks are clear and strong (not GO, I can't see that)

Printed a random image from a different computer (so different image, different driver, different edit software) - same fault

Put in a set of individual carts (normally I have a CISS installed) - same fault, although slightly different due to other inkset

It looks like the fault is IN the printer.

I have tried a soft reset from SSC service utility.

I have tried to use the Epson service suite but although some of the functions work (paper feed, nozzle check) most return "communication error"

Any ideas? I have tried everything I can think of!
