I have an Epson xp400 printer and it reports that my ink levels are diminishing even though nothing is printing. For example, I just installed a new Espon 200 black ink cartridge yet it only prints blank pages. I checked the ink levels after 10 head cleanings and it shows my black ink levels are down! How is that possible if no ink is even coming out???

The printer will not let you print if the cartridge is reported to be empty. Whenever I take a cartridge out to replace it with a new one, I shake it and still hear ink inside.

What exactly do you think those 10 cleanings use?  Magical pixie dust?  A head cleaning uses as much ink as printing 5-10 pages, so you can easily spend the whole cartridge cleaning the heads.  Also, the ink dries out after a few months if it's just sitting there without being used.  When that happens, it also destroys the heads, so no amount of cleaning will get them working again.  If the printer refuses to print, chuck it in the trash and get something that isn't a piece of crap.  A black & white laser is the most economical choice, and the toner doesn't dry out.  Also, Epson makes the least reliable inkjets on the market.
