If your HP printer gives you an error message, such as the HP cartridge has been locked or any other reference to the HP cartridge protection, it sounds like you have become the victim of the printer firmware update, and you must not be able to use compatible or remanufactured ink. You may also see the message that "cartridge has been used or forged" has been detected.
We understand your frustration and agree that everyone should choose whether to use third party ink in their printer instead of locking HP cartridges to another printer. Don't worry, I will show you how to solve this problem and delete the protection of HP cassette tape so as to bypass it.
To delete, disable or bypass the ink box protection settings on the HP printer, you need to use the settings on the printer control panel (for the printer that is not connected to the Internet), or you need the printer IP address of the printer connected to the printer. Internet.
1, for non-Internet-connected printers - find the device and printer section in the control panel, and then select your HP printer. Find the cassette protection tab in the HP toolbox, and then click Disable Cassette Protection Options and save.
2, for printers connected to the Internet - go to your printer and find your printer i.p address in the settings menu. Notice this and enter it in the browser search bar, which takes you to the printer configuration page. Click Set and disable the ink box protection.
Please note that when your printer is updated again, this setting can be automatically enabled so that you can stop updates by closing updates in the Web service section.
