From RTM world, these days HP had used a technique to update the firmware of the printers in order to lock out compatible supplies. Now the new chip solving this problem has come out. iAICON is going to push the product with chip to the market.
Days ago, according to the whistleblower, “HP has launched a new range of W1106A/106A cartridges used with printer model in laser MFP 135a/135w/137fnw and Laser 107a/107w series, these cartridges are embedded with a chip that can trigger a firmware update of the laser printer without the need of the internet.” This situation showed up in Italy and the cartridges of the same series in other areas, W1105A/105A, W1107A/107A、MLT-K200, may also face the same risk sooner or later.
The involved models are as follows as we concerned:
