HP "timebomb" prevents HP inkjet printers from using non-HP ink cartridges.

<< < (3/3)

Deozaan:
This is not a rare occurrence with aging cartridges. Once they pass their recommended shelf life (~2-3 years), they become time bombs. And printing defects (spots, streaks, etc.) do not always occur prior to catastrophic failure...they can just go poof ... Like mine did.

That is good to know. Thanks.

Even still, a $60 toner cartridge every 2-3 years is much better than $30 ink cartridges every few months.

I have a Canon WiFi printer...literally cheaper to go buy a new printer (which comes with 50% full cartridges) than it is to buy refills or new cartridges.............
