" ...  EPSON DISABLES THE PRINTER WITH FIRMWARE UPDATE. ... This firmware update conveniently occurs a month or so after you are able to return. ... THEY WILL NOT DO ANYTHING If this was clear at the time of purchase or clear at the time of updating the firmware then yes it would be completely my choice and my decision BUT it is not clear at both the time of purchase and with the firmware update.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Epson recently issued a firmware update that DISABLES ALL FUNCTIONS if you have remanufactured cartridges.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It worked ok for a while until I updated the firmware and then it says the ink is not recognized. ... So I bought some other ink and it worked fine until another firmware upgrade and now the ink is not allowed either.  ...  "

" ...  I have to constantly reset it or run firmware for it to be found by my computer/iPad.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I bought 2 of these printers and made the "mistake" of allowing the latest firmware upgrade on one of them. ... There is apparently a "fix" for this by downgrading the firmware.  ...  "
comment
" ...  If you proceed, Epson will install illegal (Supreme Court Ruling) firmware, modifying printer to reject non OEM ink. ... Fortunately you can hack firmware to older version fairly simply using internet posted instructions.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Word of advice for anyone with this printer - do not update the firmware, otherwise if you have non-Epson ink cartridges they will no longer work.  ...  "
