Get a "People Friendly" printer, like a Brother printer, that uses toner cartridges that holds a lot more ink at a far cheaper price :-)
well , it happen to me with my Brother LC 40 cartridges . when I first bought it I recognised that it runs out of ink very fast. when I take off the cartridges I see amount of ink spilling inside it. so I never through it hopping it will be useful on a day. any how, I was staking for a printing job today and looking for a solution on the net but could not figure a good solution to my printer.. so I've took the C cartridge from the printer which was highlighted as no ink.. hit it on a tissue above the table for 10 times. inserting it inside the printer.. and the magic starts. the printer recognise the cartridge as low ink again .. but it makes it to print again.
Depends on the model of printer. Soldering a hole in the top of the cartridge and pouring some more in works for me.
