Can it be cured or is instant ink fatal to printers?

HP Recommended
crippled by instant ink 2630

My wife decided it would be an amazing idea to sign up to HP's ink scam mail order for life, you can never leave or we will destroy your printer, instant ink nightmare. She decided after a few months of it never working that it was not such a good idea, sent the cartridges back and followed the complex and pointless steps and it still never worked and then she asked me to fix it. I played with it googled it and found that the rest of the world had given up and brought new printers and I simply followed the same procedure and we are now very happy as its not an HP. 


My question is should i burn the printer, crush it or feed the plastic to sea life or is there some kind of miracle that can rescue this actually not bad bit of hardware just ruined by a greedy stupid company. I did hard reset it, sent cartridges back, removed credit card details signed off in a zillion ways.
