HP Printer Firmware Downgrade Instructions
Firmware updates are released mostly to fix firmware bugs, crashes or issues to improve a printer's performance. However, this is not the case if you are using remanufactured or third party ink cartridges.
Aside from fixing printer issues, firmware updates are also designed by printer industries to limit the use of third party ink cartridges. If you are currently using or planning to use remanufactured inks, then we strongly advise you to 'NOT' update your printer's firmware to its latest version. Please note that once your firmware has been updated, your printer will only accept OEM or original ink cartridges unless you will perform an HP firmware downgrade or reset HP printer to default settings.
NOTE: Please be informed that using or compatible replacement printer ink cartridges will never void your printer warranty. Please contact us for any further questions.
