Epson Inkjet Firmware Upgrades

Posted Thursday, October 17th, 2019 by .

Epson has released a number of new firmware updates that are designed to block the use of third-party ink cartridges. The error message may say the cartridge is damaged or not recognized. 

Epson, among other manufacturers, has a tendency to push firmware upgrades intentionally to reject third party cartridges, thus forcing customers to buy the far more expensive OEM cartridges.

We are actively working on getting new cartridges that will be recognized by all of the printers regardless of firmware, but this could take 3-4 weeks.

If you have one of the following printers and have upgraded the firmware, please follow the link to downgrade the firmware so you are able to continue using your third-party cartridges:

If you have one of the following printers, a new firmware upgrade has been released and will disable the third-party cartridges from working.  We do not have a solution just yet, but you can prevent future firmware updates by following the Disable link below:
