Run out of ink to fast!

How come 2 cartridges of ink runs out at 169 pages (text not photos) when one cartridge should print ~250 pages?

 

We installed the printer in june 2011 and changed cartridges 2011/10/01 and now its empty again!

According to our printerstats we have printed only 169 pages!

 

Not ok.

Re: Run out of ink to fast!

My cartidges didn't last for many pages either.  But I wonder if they dry out when they are not used for a while?

I have a HP Photosmart Premium C310a, 564 ink.

 

i have used the XL ink and it dies out WAY before 250 pages, and though i'm too lazy to look up the exact numbers, i can promise you it aint close to 250 pages.

 

right now the ones i seem to be having trouble with most often is the yellow ink, and the plain black in. sometimes the photo black ink clears out fast too. We don't even print pictures.

 

often we'll get streaks in the printing where the black is faded, and we don't know why. the ink is low when this happens, but it shouldn't be low. and i run all the maintenance tools provided.

 

often the printer is off, but sometimes we leave it on between uses.

 

also, often i do two sided printing in high quality gray scale. but not always.
