If the head is still producing ink then there must be some type of failure in the control electronics. I now have a working 1200 and if I didn't have a bunch of printing to do I could be tempted to start swapping components to see what is and isn't working. But I'm also not at all sure that I wouldn't end up with two dead printers. :( If you do get yours repaired try and get as much info as possible to pass on to us.
