Probably my own fault - I don't print often enough
This is certainly not something that you should be assuming responsibility for.

If a printer requires that you print a certain number of pages per day/week, then it is not suitable for home use, and is therefore not fit for purpose, so should be kicked off the market.

Home printers must be built so that they can lie dormant at room temperature for weeks and even months, without printing anything (I sometimes don't use mine for over a year). It's a basic, fundamental requirement of the product -- like a knife must have a sharp bit.

Name and shame, so that other home printer users don't get stuck with the same turkey.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
