Epson Stylus Photo RX585 always running out of ink

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?

Hello. Thank you for all the comments. I use the printer mainly for printing documents once in a while. Sometimes I have printed with colours, sometimes black and white. I do not print very often. I have used it to print photo's on photo paper earlier, but that seldom happens. Also I expect it to use a lot of ink when I do that.

I probably will try to go for a black and white laser printer that is not the cheapest one, for lowering operational costs.

Yes, i use 3rd party cardridges from inkclub.no and it is the software on the printer that informs me when ink is low or needs to be changed.
