Why is HP 902 hard to find?

On Dec 1st 2020, HP upgraded the firmware of 902-909 and 952-959 series printers, and claimed that after upgrading, the previous ink cartridge and third-party ink cartridge could not be used any more.

HP 902, 903, 904, 905, 906xl, 907xl, 908xl and 909xl cartridges may can not be compatible with these HP Officejet printers after December 2020:

Firmware updates have a serious impact on users and the market

For users, the ink cartridge they purchased cannot be used overnight. After firmware upgraded many users found that it’s hard to find HP 902 ink cartridge. It’s hard time for users who use 902-909 and 952-959 series printers, especially under the outbreak of COVID-19.

So they sent out online inquiries to HP, HP reported that users could buy new ink cartridges in HP stores, but the customers didn’t find them actually, and they couldn’t find them on staples, Office Depot, best buy, Wal Mart and Amazon, either. HP did not give a positive response to users’ questions.

For the market, this firmware update caused the printer to refuse to use the previous and third-party ink cartridge, which made great losses to the third-party ink cartridge manufacturers. As a result, thousands of ink cartridges are abandoned, which has an unnecessary negative impact on the environment.

For Hewlett Packard, they have been advocating the use of reusable ink cartridges, and this upgrade goes against their wishes. It not only makes the original ink cartridge unusable, but also causes a great waste of resources, which has an indelible impact on the whole earth and the market.

Using high quality compatible ink cartridges may be the best way to solve this problem

Do you still believe HP’s saying that the third-party ink cartridge can’t be used for the newly upgraded printer? HP’s scam has long been cracked by many third-party consumables companies, such as v4ink.

Some users who use HP 6978 printer for a long time give up HP because they can’t buy HP 902 and buy other brands of printers instead. But there are also some users who bought the latest version of HP 902 from v4ink, which revived their printers.

V4ink HP 902 ink cartridge is made of environment-friendly materials, which is perfectly compatible with your printer. The page output is the same as that of the OEM ink cartridge, and the printing effect is almost as good as that of the OEM ink cartridge. But the price is only half that of the OEM. In the case of HP 902 out of stock in the United States, v4ink can continue to provide users with high-quality HP 902 products to solve their urgent needs.

The comment of the users who use v4ink HP 902

Rnabulsi: V4ink saved my printer!

SN-1132: I can’t find hp 902xl ink anywhere. The covid 19 crisis made me work on home, and printers were essential. Fortunately, I found 902 ink in v4ink, and their printing effect is almost the same as that of HP original, which really surprised me!

RHH23: Found that the ink cartridge of my Officejet Pro 6978 has been recalled. HP doesn’t have any instructions, and the ink cartridge can’t be found on the website. I’m frustrated because I’ve been using my printer for eight years and I use it almost every day. HP has let me down. Until my friends recommended v4ink to me, their 902 ink cartridge can perfectly compatible with my printer, and not as HP said that the printer will be damaged. I really want to recommend v4ink to all my friends.

PhilipBuk: Last week, I received a standard cyan 902 toner cartridge (which I ordered in a short window when it was available at HP stores). Unfortunately, the ink cartridge I received didn’t work properly. I received an “ink cartridge incompatible” error. I called HP support, but it didn’t work. They sent me a replacement cartridge. Hope to receive it by the end of this week. And, hopefully, it will work.

At the same time, I picked up the third-party ink cartridge, hoping it would solve my trouble. At the beginning, it gave me an error prompt of “ink cartridge problem”. I felt very depressed. Later, with the help of after-sales service personnel, the printer was degraded and the new ink cartridge could be used normally. That’s great!
