Depleted ink cartridges - it's a problem as old as time itself. And it's also one that no one ever wants to deal with.

In this article, we'll touch on some best practices and tips you can use to make replacing your printer's depleted cartridges as smooth and unproblematic as possible.
In 2020, people around the world printed a collective 2.8 trillion pages. By 2025, researchers predict that number will decrease only slightly with the rise of automated machines, averaging around 2.3 trillion pages per year. Even with that decrease, the reality is that print services will always be in high demand. If 2.3 trillion pages are printed each year, that’s 4.4 million pages printed globally every minute, enough to cover 39 football fields.
Some of the newer HP printers may receive a firmware update (either installed automatically or manually installed by customer) which may lock-out the cartridge’s smart chip and prevent printing. Typically, when this occurs the error message “Cartridge Error: cartridge missing or damaged”, “Cartridge Problem”, “Missing or Damaged” or similar language will be displayed when using refilled ink cartridges that have a replacement chip installed*. It is always suggested that you disable either the ‘Auto Update‘, ‘Update Printer‘ or ‘Update Available‘ feature moving forward to help prevent future chip lock-outs when using refilled ink cartridges.
