Warm Tips: HP may pop up a message to remind you to update the firmware regularly or upgrade automatically without notifying you. If it happens to you, it will be better to bypass the message or disable the “Automatic Update” feature because it may lead to an unrecognizing of v4ink smart chips.

How to disable the firmware “Automatic Update” feature?

  1. Swipe the home page and choose “Setup”.
  2. Click “Service” and select “LaserJet Update”
  3. Click “Manage Updates” and choose “Check Automatically”.
  4. Choose “Off” to disable the feature.
  5. Go back to the “Manage Updates” pages.
  6. Choose the last button “Allow Updates” and select “No”.

What should we do if the printer pops out “The indicated cartridges are non-HP cartridges”?

Please don’t worry.  It’s a way of HP to remind users that the cartridge is from the 3-party source and it would not affect your normal use. You could press “OK” to bypass it or follow the steps to disable the feature if you don’t want to be interrupted constantly.

  1. Find the “Setup” icon on the home page.
  2. Choose “Supply Setting” and “Cartridge Policy”.
  3. Touch “Off” to disable the feature.

How to deal with “Event Code: 10.00.00” displayed on the printer?

This message may prompt out when a new cartridge is installed or on its half-life. You could try to take out the cartridge and reinstall it.

Any way to deal with a “Cartridge is low” message displays on printer and computer?

This message is used to remind the toner cartridge level is low. But sometimes it may occur when a new cartridge is installed because the printer may still keep the memory of the last cartridge. You could press “OK” and continue to print when your printer pops up this message. Or click “Snooze” and choose “2-Months” to postpone the message when your computer reminds you.
