It’s worth mentioning that customer can remove the chip from our CF258X remanufactured toner for intended use with our v4ink No-chip CF258A or No-chip CF258X toner. Also chip is reusable for 3 new v4ink No-chip toner cartridges.

Chip life circle

No wonder that using v4ink with-chip CF258A compatible toner is the best way to skip the chip-transferring procedure. It has the same starter-friendly installation mode as the original. Sometimes, the printer will notify you of the “NON-HP” and “Firmware update” message. If you want to go on using compatible toner in a hassle-free way, switching off the related setup not only does no harm to your printers, but it renders the printing job goes smoothly without interceptive warning.

Kind reminder: Presently, regarding the pre-set serial number, customer can only use 2 new CF258A or CF258X compatible toners on the same printer. If using the third one, the printer won’t recognize it by demonstrating an error message. Once the 2 compatible with-chip toners are used up, customer can choose to use remanufactured or original toner cartridge.
