The HP Printer Update window will open and your printer serial number should be visible on the display.

Select the checkbox next to the serial number and then click “Update”

The printer will need to be on the same network as the machine you are running the firmware downgrade from, or connected via a USB cable. (WIFI works too if you’re on the same WIFI network)

Select “OK” after the update is complete. Now you can start printing with your Infotone printer cartridges again!

Please remember to turn off the automatic firmware updates on your printer after this new update is installed.

Turning off these updates will prevent future automatic updates from HP so you can keep printing with Infotone cartridges.



How to turn off firmware updates on HP printers using HP 953 ink cartridges

HP released a wireless firmware update that may affect your ability to use Infotone HP 953 cartridges. If your printer updates to this latest firmware version it could prompt a cartridge problem message on your printer’s display, stopping you from using Infotone cartridges.

Customers that want to continue using Infotone cartridges should choose to avoid this update.

The message shown below may appear on your printer’s display if the firmware has been updated, preventing you from using Infotone ink cartridges.
