What’s toner cartridge used in HP m479fdw Printer?

This printer contains 4 individual toner cartridges, black, cyan, magenta, yellow and all of them are available at either standard yield or high capacity version.

Both versions share the same physical size but are with different yield capacities. The standard version, HP 414A, can produce 2,400 pages per black and 1,200 pages per color, while HP 414X high yield cartridges yield 7,500 pages per black and 6,000 pages per color. If you print a lot and frequently, the high-yield cartridges will be a better deal.

Now we can offer 3 choices for you. The 1st one is v4ink 414X new compatible DIY toner cartridges. The toner cartridges are brand new but without chips. It requires users to transfer OEM chips into v4ink cartridges. If you still keep the chips, you could choose this cartridge because it will help you save nearly 90% compared to HP original cartridges.

Or if you happen to throw away your empty OEM cartridges or the chips are damaged, v4ink HP 414X remanufactured toner cartridges will be a not bad choice for you. These cartridges were refilled with v4ink high-quality toner powder and include OEM chips. There is no need to reinstall the chip and users could put them into the printer directly out of the box.

However, if the above two cartridges are not ideal for you, you can turn to the final choice, v4ink new compatible HP 414X cartridges. They are brand new and come along with v4ink smart electrical chips. You don’t need to spend time transferring the chips. Because of the affordable price and effective features, these cartridges are a great way to cut down the cost and save your time. Now, a full set of 4-pack combo only costs $279.99, which means you could save more than 70% by choosing these cartridges.

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.
