    re: epson stylus 400 color printer.

    if one of three nozzles is partially clogged, what can be done to clear it,
    short of bringing the printer to a computer techie? I have used epson's
    utility to clear the nozzles several times (20+), but the magenta nozzle is
    still partially plugged. there is a brand new color ink cartridge, so the
    ink supply should not be a problem.

    Windex cuts that ink quite well. YMMV so use at your own risk.

    I send mine to my dad who in turn removes the print head and uses a damp
    cotton bud on the ink jets to eventually loosen/dissolve the blockage.

    I don't recommend doing it unless you know how to remove your print head and
    replace it correctly.
    You have been warned !!
