How to Disable Automatic Firmware Updates on Epson Printers

From time to time, Epson releases new versions of their printers firmware.
Default printer settings have automatic updates ON and firmware updates occur without the user even knowing that it has taken place.

These updates often have no benefit to the end user and are simply done to combat the use of generic cartridges by making them unrecognisable by the printer once the update has been installed.

It is still highly recommended that you disable automatic updates of the printer software.

Right-click the product icon in the Windows taskbar to reveal the menu, then choose Software Update Settings.
Disable updates

Set all update frequencies to Never.
Disable auto update

Be sure to repeat this on all Windows computers that have the printer software installed.
