Brother 2350DW laser printer is $89.00 from Walmart.com. does 2 sided printing. It is a WiFi printer, easy to setup and works great! No ink to dry up!

I've had good luck with wrapping the printer cartridges in saran wrap. Then I soak them before using.

A few years ago we had the same problem--dried up inoperable ink. We went to Walmart to buy a new printer and the salesman said to buy a Canon printer. We did and no more useless ink cartridges. It works perfectly every year.

Just take it north or where ever, run it a couple of time a month. Easy Peasy. $70 saved. They reall aren't that big.

Get a color laser. They are often available for less than $200. The toner cartridges last far longer than ink cartridges, and the page won't smear if it gets wet. I stopped using ink jet printers years ago. Long term cost is far less with a good laser.

Buying the Ink just kills me because at one point I owned a Copy Machine Repair Company and know it is sold for triple the cost.

Since the kids are no longer around to sneak copies from my little Epson Printer I decided because of this thread to go nuts and treat myself to a Brother 2 sided copier with a 2 sided Document Feeder. Maybe I'll have to buy toner once a year and no more color ink. I looked back at the Amazon Order History and see I spend about $240 on ink last year. It was worse with those sneaky cheapskates around. LOL.

This is a cheap maneuver that makes me feel like a million bucks. Thanks to the OP. I hope you solved your problem.

I don't print that much so I don't have to buy toner cartridges too often, but when I do I buy cheap ones on Amazon -- whatever brand has 4.5 stars. I pay $12-15 each for cartridges for both my Brother and HP b&w laser printers (compared to ~ $50 for Brother and HP-brand ones) and I have never had a problem with one of the cheap ones.
