More Frequent Ink Jet Clogs Sign of Ageing Printer?

Hello all,

I have noted that my Epson 3800 Pro which is at least 10 years old is suffering clogged ink jets more and more frequently.  I print every 7 to 10 days.  Of late, I have run Qimage unclogging patterns.  In any case, it usually takes an ink splurging head cleaning to set the thing right.  I have considered keeping the head clearing on a routine schedule, but worry that not "parking" the head may encourage drying it out.

So, is what I am experiencing an indication of a printer nearing the end of its time?
