    Maybe the heads still need cleaning...
    Maybe the ink is cheap crap and it's gone 'off'...
    Maybe if you told us which printer you had we may have some advice...
    Maybe it's an Epson C42 like my old one and cleaning the heads five times only empties the carts without making any difference and they'll send you another one under warranty like they did with mine...
    Maybe there's a world where we don't have to run...
    Maybe baby, I'll be blue...
    Maybe I'm amazed at the way you love me...
    if your font size is this small i'll add you to my ignore list because you're wasting my time, OK?

    Man, those cartridges can be more expensive that a printer itself.

    What rip off.

    Next one I'll buy, will be lazer.
    I found out I dont need them colors anyways,
    just printing some sheet music and such sometimes...

    Spoiler: Show

    Some of these printers are simply rebadged HP printers, but with crappy firmware. One of the common faults is that they don't park the heads if you leave them switched on. This causes the ink to dry up or even leak out, meaning you don't get much life out of the cart.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
