How do I clean the nozzles on an Epson R300. It's been setting for 5 years and I put in new ink but doesn't get to the paper.

5 years idle time is deadly for any inkjet. You can try something like @Moab's link, but even that is not guaranteed. And a new printhead will cost more than a new printer. – hdhondt Oct 9 '12 at 4:48
