How to disable HP Cartridge Protection
HP is back at it again with their mission to stop letting consumers choose what type of cartridges they want to install and use in their printer. Hewlett-Packard have introduced this ‘cartridge protection’ system on their original ink cartridges to lock the genuine inks to a specific printer so that you cannot use that cartridge in any other printer.
Customers may want to use compatible ink cartridges or re-manufactured ink cartridges in their HP printer instead of the original genuine HP ink cartridges as they just cost too much
How to turn off HP Cartridge Protection Setting!
You can turn off the HP cartridge protection setting in a few simple steps.
If your Hewlett-Packard printer does not have any internet features you can simply go into your printer settings which can be located on your printer menu and you will see the option to disable the HP cartridge protection. Just select the disable option and click Apply and Save if necessary.
If your printer has internet features:
