Updating your Epson printer firmware version may prompt a cartridge problem message on your printer’s display, preventing you from using our compatible edible ink cartridges. Customers that want to continue using our edible ink cartridges may choose to avoid updating their firmware*

If a recent firmware update is preventing you from using compatible printer cartridges, you can try reverting the firmware. Reverting the firmware may allow your printer to work with the previous version of your printer firmware before the update occurred.  You can check our previous blog post  for instructions on how to revert your firmware.
