As of Dec 21, we understand that HP has rolled out some firmware updates that do just that - on printers that accept the HP 962 cartridges. The same is expected to occur on printers that utilize the HP 910 cartridges. Below you will find video instruction links on how to DISABLE PRINTER UPDATES on the above models.
HP 962: IMPORTANT to disable updates to enjoy continued use of 3rd party carts
HP 910: IMPORTANT to disable updates to enjoy continued use of 3rd party carts
In general, we recommend DISABLING PRINTER UPDATES on ALL PRINTERS, and to never agree to updates (automatic or otherwise) if you want to continue to be able to use lower cost 3rd party / remanufactured cartridges.
