Locking Ink Cartridges To Stop Recycling

With recent updates with some of the new printers and new firmware onto the market. Printer manufactuer HP is advising customers to 'lock' the genuine HP ink cartridges so that they can't be used in any printer and in turn can't be recycled.

 

By locking the HP ink cartridge they can't be used again and so cannot be recycled and so the cartridge can only be thrown away and will become landfill. The HP ink cartridge once locked can then not be remanufactured by companies and future uses of compatible or remanufactured cartridges on the customers printer can't be used.

 

Most messages once the update and locking software on cartridges has been done, will show as (or similar to) "Cartridges locked to another printer", "Cartridges failed" or "Cartridges cannot be recognised".

 

Once these messages are showing unfortunately you'll only be able to use Genuine HP catrridges in your printer. Cashforcartridges advise is to read update information or on screen information correctly before going ahead with any updates or changes. If your unsure contact the seller of your ink cartridges.

 

Cashforcartridges can't recycle the locked ink cartridges and so will be on a charge back, please check your cartridges before you send them in to be recycled
