• HP firmware update blocks the use of non-HP cartridges

    Günter Born reports that there’s a new HP Officejet driver making the rounds today that produces a bogus front panel message:

    One or more cartridges appear to be damaged. Remove them and replace with new cartridges

    HP’s new firmware update seems to force HP’s Dynamic Security Feature to block non HP cartridges. Fortunately, there is a manual workaround.
