    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!
