HP Firmware Update for "Cartridge Problem" error message

Defect: Your printer displays an error message about one or more defective cartridges


Cartridge Problem error message

Reason: HP probably has in its firmware a timer, which has expired recently and therefore the use of non-original cartridges is refused.

Solution: You must download and install the latest firmware from the HP Support Site. The error message is then extinguished automatically and the user can continue to print as usual.

You can find the manual and the latest firmware installation for your printer here: HP Support.

Your printer will recognise your cartridges again after installation.

Please note:

This firmware update ONLY applies if ALL three of the following conditions meet:

1. You are using compatible cartridges (non-original)

2. Your printer displays a Cartridge Problem error message. Other error messages are not related.

3. Your printer is one of the following models from the series (Other HP printers are not affected, only the following are):
