I've had the opposite problem with my 3000 (using Luminos silver inks)...I need to power-cycle it every 2-3 weeks to avoid clogs. I learned this hard way when it was off for 2 months, and it had a clog from hell. I believe I tried the Windex trick 1,557 times to no avail before taking it to an Epson repair station (where they had 3000's stacked like cord-wood). I've had mini-clogs from hell since then, but the Windex trick over a period of several days has fixed it. If I find myself in a printing lull, I will try to power cycle the 3000 regularly, perhaps even printing some colorbars. I have been convinced of two things over the last couple of years: small children develop ear infections as a hobby, and that my 3000 develops clogs because it gets jealous of me spending my time elsewhere.
