Can the Epson ink cartridges be refilled or can I use third-party ink cartridges without voiding the warranty?
Epson does not recommend refilling or using other brands of ink cartridges. Epson uses a permanent Micro Piezo print head that has allowed Epson to lead the industry in delivering consistent photo image quality by using variable-sized droplets. Micro Piezo print head can also use a wider variety of inks, which has allowed Epson to introduce such ink breakthroughs as DURABrite® and Epson UltraChrome® inks that offer greatly improved humidity resistance, smudge resistance, and fade resistance.
Using refilled ink cartridges will not void the product's original warranty; however, if these products cause a failure, the repair of that failure will not be covered under warranty.
