|Well, I agree. Sometimes the printer might be doing a clean function either by you telling it or it just does it. That clean function uses a LOT of ink. Also the 400 page is something likke 8% coverage. If you print off anything with graphic that goes up to 30 -80 real fast.|
Check also quality and select the lowest needed. Lastly sometimes you have to really look at all options. I have seen a few epsons that were confusing as to how to really print in Black only. Black and White can still be printing with color. The image could be in color but the print settings revert to color or aren't being selected as Black only.
Try to save stuff off on flash drives, reduce printing to the most critical needs.
