Whilst we always try to ensure our cartridges do have chip revisions to match the latest updates, due to how recent this update is, as of the 17th of April 2019, we are not able to guarantee that our cartridges will work with the effected printers, if the update has been performed.

It is generally recommend to disable HP Firmware updates which can be done in the following way:

– Click “Setup” on printer screen (this looks like a cog or wheel)
– Click on “Printer Maintenance”
– Click on “Update the Printer”
– Click on “Printer Update Options”
– Click on “Do Not Check”

HP may also try to update via a WiFi Notification which will say:

“An update is available that can improve the printer’s performance. Would you like to install the update?”

You then need to select “No” on both questions that pop up.

We will continue to monitor this issue to ensure that we are able to provide the best support for this issue, as well as newly chipped cartridges as soon as possible – if you encounter any issues with our cartridges please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us either by submitting a Support Ticket here – https://refreshcartridges.co.uk/helpdesk/ or giving us a call on 01803449339.
