I never used refilled inks, as the shops I went to said Epsom inks were so cheap it wasn't worth their while doing them. Indeed that was the reason I bought an Epsom printer, I had been told their inks were much cheaper than my Lexmark printer. The Epsom compatible inks sold by Tesco work fine and I have never had any issues with my SX215.
Check your printer settings. I have an Epson Stylus Photo RX640 all-in-one machine, and I had the same problem when I copied black-and-white photo prints on to photo paper. They had a blue tint. The default setting on my printer is "Color" and "Text", so the machine was trying to print in colour from a b/w original. So I changed the "Color" setting to "B&W" and the "Text" setting to "Photo" and I got properly black-and-white copies.
No, I can't afford to print at home. Quality inks and paper are far too expensive and still don't get close to the quality from professional photo labs like for example http://printing-1.co.uk/ and some others.
