Wish I could tell you why.  I've had two well used Epsons, a 700 and a 1200
stop spitting ink and there have been several others report similar
failures.  Logically it is likely either a head or controller board
failure, but I do not know how to diagnose which.  I still have the dead
1200 in hopes that a repair may be possible.  A head isn't too expensive
but the controller board is.

Has anyone with this type of failure had Epson repair the printer?  If so
can you comment?

>So if ink can be squirted out during a cleaning cycle, why not while

The head isn't squirting the ink out it is being sucked out by the vacuum pump.
