Epson Stylus Photo RX585 always running out of ink

Last Modified: 2015-06-21
My printer is always running out of ink, and I am hardly using it. When I pick up the patron that is supposed to be empty and shake it, it sounds like there is plenty in there. I have tried taking the patron out and in again several times, and tried cleaning the gold connector - but it does not help. Also head cleaning no longer helps much, when printing the printer misses lines of ink randomly on the printed document. Head cleaning used to fix this, but not anymore.

Any tips? Just get a new printer? What kind of printer lets me avoid these problems?
