HP had apologized and was fined for this problem. However, this does not stop HP's determination to continue the safety upgrade. At the end of June, the company performed firmware updates for the HP M602 and HP M4555 series printers.
Recently, Epson has also followed the pace and released an update that limits the use of recycled ink cartridges.
The ink cartridges and printer models affected by this update are as follows,
Ink cartridges: Epson T288 / T288Xl and T410 / T410XL.
Printer, Expression XP530, XP 630, XP640 and XP 830
In addition to the above models, other models may also be affected. Epson said that users can also choose not to accept updates through the relevant settings.
