Default Re: Epson Printer and non brand ink

I have an Epson Stylus SX200 copier/printer which I have had for many years and alwys use compatible cartridges from https://www.cartridgediscount.co.uk/

The colour reproduction is very good indeed. Also, sometimes not using the printer for a month or two I have never had problems with nozzle blockages, etc.

Would recommend you give them a try. Very good prices too for their replacements.

I've just seen this article from Fast Company:

EFF: Epson tricking customers with fake software update to reject thir
Quote:
The Electronic Frontier Foundation has revealed that in late 2016 or early 2017 printer giant Epson began sending deceptive updates to users’ printers under the guise that the updates were software or security improvements. In fact, the EFF claims, the updates were nothing more than Epson giving its printers the ability to reject third-party ink refills.
I wonder if that's what my apparent software updates were?

As you use branded inks then that won't affect you but for those who use(d) generic inks, then I would think an uninstall/reinstall and not allow the update should get you back to where you want to be.

Now I understand why Epson are obsessed with getting users to use their auto update manager.
