How to bypass a cartridge expiration date

 1. Product Name and Number
     • HP Photosmart 8250 (2006)

 2. Operating System installed (if applicable)
     • Windows 7 32-bit

 

 3. Error message (if any)
     • a cartridge expired

 

My 8250 is now nearly 7 years old and still I get the message "a cartridge is expired" I understand the need of HP to use this option, but after 7 years?

 

I only can print in PDF, but thats no harm for me because I only print once a week (average). But as I want to print I am about 15 minutes busy to get the HP to override the message, which become very annoying after all those years.

 

So is there no way to get ride off this message with this old  printer?

Re: How to bypass a cartridge expiration date

As I mentioned: "But as I want to print I am several minutes busy to get the HP to override the message, which become very annoying after all those years."

 

So yes I'm able to override, but it ain't going easy, and that is anoying.
