Cleaning a Epson R800

I recently had a sheet of paper miss-feed through my R800 and now have smudges of ink over everything I print. I have put about 50 sheets of paper through in an attempt to clean it but to no avail. Any suggestions on cleaning would be very welcome before I throw the bl***y thing out the window.

Thanks Ian and please ignore the PM I sent you - the link now works (???!)

I've tried the Epson cleaning sheet but was unimpressed!

Well if cleaning sheets don't do the trick the only thing you can do is open it up and get direct access to the guts of it.
