Epson 29XL compatible cartridges (T2981 / T2982 / T2983 / T2984 / T2986 or T2991 / T2992 / T2993 / T2994 / T2994 / T2996 cartridge numbers) are relatively new in the market, and printers in this range have already been recent updates directly from Epson. Firmware updates are designed to disable the use of third-party cartridges.

The best thing to do is to make sure that any option to allow future printer updates is not selected during initial printer setup. If you have already installed your printer, it is probably best to go to the properties of your printer on your computer and deselect printer updates from there if possible, or directly on the menu screen. your printer.

Unfortunately, this is a problem that affects the entire market, compatible products of all retailers are likely to be affected. To continue printing under these circumstances, your printer will only accept original Epson cartridges until an updated compatible chip is available. It may be more cost effective at this point to replace your printer with a printer that is not affected by regular firmware updates.

If you are not sure what to do, contact Epson Customer Service for more information on the recommended printer lines.
