Epson Epson Stylus Photo R1800

Epson r1800 clogged/airlock, won't print any ink

My epson r 1800 worked fine until last week, now it's totally stopped printing any ink at all. I have refillable carts filled with epson bulk ink. I thought this was just a regular print head clog and I went ahead and flushed it using a syringe and cleaning fluid but no change. I also primed the carts by removing the air and still nothing. The printer won't push ink though.

Any thoughts? What's the next step?
Do you get any error messages?

fjord1231...what happens if you put water on the cap assembly and run a cleaning cycle. Does the ink get sucked away?
