Check your update settings in the printer software. Turn off any automatic updates from Epson. To get updates, put some old Epson cartridges, good or bad, in while you update. Epson will log on to your printer and kill your non-Epson cartridges during auto updates.
Regarding your recent inquiry about the Epson T071 ink cartridge error message ("Ink Light is red", "Cartridge Not Recognized", "Replace Cartridge", "Installed ink cartridge is expended." or similar cartridge/printer alert message) associated with your Epson SX200 printer, the cartridge probably has a mis-programmed smart chip...
NOTE: If you had the cartridge refilled, the cartridge chip must be reset. Re-programming, which typically yields a green light to show success, it does not always result in correct smart chip reprogramming. It is also possible they may have forgotten to re-program the ink cartridge. If a compatible/clone cartridge, it could be a reprogramming issue or defective chip (which is common). Or, such a failure could be an electrical failure of the ink cartridge itself*. Unfortunately there is nothing you can do from home....the chip(s) need to be re-programmed (at refiller) or replaced with a new cartridge from vendor.
*OTHER POSSIBLE CAUSES OF FAILURE:
Either the external chip or internal ink sensor is electrically bad (the internal ink sensor detects if cartridge is really out of ink). If you return the cartridge to your retail refiller and they re-program the cartridge(s) a 2nd time but the "replace cartridge" message, or similar blocking message persists, then this is the likely cause and the cartridge will need to be replaced with a new one.
1) Confirm if this is just a nuisance/annoyance alert (i.e. "non-genuine" cartridge ) vs. an actual 'unrecognized cartridge' alert (i.e. Red X's on printer display / Windows pop-up message). Please visit the following Inkjet411 support page which will help you delineate the difference: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=73
2) On some Epson printer models you may need to scroll thru the menu options AT THE PRINTER'S CONTROL MENU (i.e. right arrow key) to help determine which specific ink cartridge is actually causing the 'Unrecognized Cartridge' error condition. On the other hand, for general 'non-genuine' cartridge alerts, typically you can bypass these errors by clicking thru the acknowledgement prompts or via the arrow keys: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1939
3) We suggest you remove all the ink cartridges, inspect the smart-chips condition (on rear side) and ensure there are no cuts/gashes or ink residue present on the micro-chip surfaces. To be sure we suggest you clean the micro-chip surfaces; click here to see 2 different pictures of this along with cleaning instructions: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1939
4) If the error continues (following ink tank re-programming a 2nd time), then we suggest you install a new genuine Epson ink cartridge into the printer to verify the permanent PRINTHEAD is functioning ok. Here is how the PRINTHEAD works: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2054
NOTE 2: Following refilled cartridge installation, your printer/computer may display an ink alert message such as "non-genuine cartridge" or "you have not installed genuine Epson ink cartridges" - these are COMPLETELY NORMAL alerts when using refilled ink cartridges. Press proceed/continue/accept/yes/OK to dismiss the prompt. In some cases you may have to scroll over using the arrow keys to dismiss the alerts. Additional alerts may be displayed the first time you go to print or copy - dismiss the alerts accordingly to resume normal print operations. For more information on Epson ink cartridge alert messages please visit: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1939
CAUTION: Be advised, the use of compatible/clone cartridges (i.e. sold thru the internet from overseas) are known to be problematic and may cause printer errors or permanent PRINTHEAD damage (especially for 3rd party inks which contain volatile organic compounds or VOCs). We do NOT suggest refilling these types of ink cartridges.....refilling of Epson original/genuine ink cartridges is only suggested!
NOTE 3: If, after replacing the cartridge(s), with brand new Epson Original ink cartridge(s), is the only solution which corrects the problem, then you likely have a defective cartridge (internal ink level monitoring circuit), unrelated to the refilled cartridges. If, after replacing the cartridge, or cartridges, with brand new Epson Original ink cartridges, does NOT correct the problem, then you may have a defective PRINTHEAD (i.e. permanent electrical sub-assembly which the cartridges plug into). For more information please visit our support page which explains the natural degradation of PRINTHEADs over time: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2934

Bottom line, if the printer doesn't accept them, then they are not compatible... I'd recommend returning them for a refund and find a supplier that has tried and tested cartridges.
I'd love to be able to recommend a supplier but as I don't have an SX200 I can't... Others might be able to help if you can indicate where you are in the world as the SX200 is, I believe, zone specific.
