not sure if this topics been covered.
but okay, i was reading from this weekends business section and the titled stated
"HP sued over printer technology ..suit:indicator that ink is out deceives
"the smart chip is dually engineered to prematurely register ink depletion and to render a cartridge unusable throught eh use of a built-in experation date that is not revealed to the consumer. The suit was filed on behalf of HP customers who bought HP inkjet printers from February 2001 to the present that contain a smart chip or technology that prematurely registers the cartidge is empty or expired. On Wednesday, HP reported the printer division earned $6.1 billion in revenue and had an operating profit of $932 million in the first fiscal quarter that ended 31."
DAMN IT!!! I OWN AN HP PRINTER THAT DOES THE SAME FUCKIN THING......those hp cartridges are like 30 bucks a piece...and i get the same type of errors, where like you still have like 20% of the ink left and it makes me replace them.......i tried going to costco and buying cheap refilles (10 bucks).....but it won't get recognized on the hp printer....so that was a waste of money too!!
is there any way to get around this or "trick" the printer?
