I noticed you mentioned cartridge protection setting can be switched off, how do I do that please?
Hi Jackie, yes the HP printers had a internal update a while back that added some functionality around 'cartridge protection' which is meant to prevent counterfeit inks being used in the printer. What it actually also does is to lock your inks so they can only ever be used in your printer and also no compatibles can be used either. So to turn it off there are a number of steps to take depending on what printer model you have. You can find the full information on our helpful blog post here: https://www.tonergiant.co.uk/blog/2017/02/how-to-fix-hp-cartridges-locked-to-another-printer/ If you have any more questions or need extra help, please give a call and we'll talk you through it!
What's the difference between the two different cartridges of the same colour?
Hi there, the two different versions of the HP 62 ink cartridges are different sizes. So for example the HP 62 tri-colour cartridge and the 62XL tri-colour can print a different maximum number of pages. The 62XL can print over twice as much so it's the most cost effective one to buy! If you need extra help, please let me know.
