Like Dave has already said depends on a few things, if you do find someone be careful because they may be able to unblock the nozzles but the deflections can still be a major problem so I have read.

Hi, we have a Agfa Anapurna MW - I've lost a light cyan nozzle. Have tried the usual tricks of flushing solution through, letting the ink drip through for a while, and soaking the head in solution overnite. Is there anything else I can try or has it had it? thanks

Sounds like you need to get an engineer in.
