Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Unless you are printing a lot of ink on each page, and several pages, or the pages are coming out of the printer with a "wet" feel, you are getting some poorly manufactured cartridges and you need to find another supplier.

SOURCE: Using far too much ink
This came from brothers website:
The Yellow ink cartridge yield is up to 300 pages @ 600 x 150 dpi when printing at 5% coverage on A4 sized paper.
The Magenta ink cartridge yield is up to 300 pages @ 600 x 150 dpi when printing at 5% coverage on A4 sized paper.
The Cyan ink cartridge yield is up to 300 pages @ 600 x 150 dpi when printing at 5% coverage on A4 sized paper.
The Black ink cartridge yield is up to 350 pages @ 600 x 150 dpi when printing at 5% coverage on A4 sized paper.
so it appears that what you are experiencing is not normal and you may have a leaking printer.
There is one thing you can check though, everytime you print, make sure that you are not printing at the highest quality option selectable as this almost certainly will fire out more ink than regular printing... choose a middle quality option or even draft option if you will be printing regular text.

Apparently, if you hold the "resume button" (the one next to the power button) for about five seconds after you get the message saying to replace the color ink cartridge the machine starts printing. I did this after I went to "maintenance" under "preferences" and changed ink to "black only." At first that alone did not work, but after trying the resume button for 5 secs it worked okay.

Unfortunately you cannot override this behaviour without installing a valid cartridge in the printer.
Epson printers do not have this sort of functionality as it would leave the printhead open to damage and foam clogging.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
