Hi @JMo8,

 

I'd like to help!

 

Download available firmware updates from the HP website

With the printer on and connected to the computer, go to HP Customer Support - Software and Driver Downloads, and then identify your printer. Look for and install any available firmware updates. Refer to the document HP Printers - Updating or Upgrading Printer Firmware

 

The third-party ink cartridges will work. But there are many cartridges in the market which is refilled and sometimes the chip is not configured to work with the printer. You need to contact the cartridge manufacturer and find out why its not working. Try a different cartridge supplier and check if that works.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

Hi,

This recommendation absolutely does not work. 

I have kept my printer drivers up to date.  The current installed print cartridges worked perfectly fine until the latest firmware update.  It was the most recent firmware update that has rendered my printer inoperable with my current cartridges.  I have reviewed available firmware updates and you do not have the prior one available for download. Nor do you have the ability to uninstall the latest update.  I need the ability to either (A) Resolve the issue with the existing firmware update to accept the print cartridges that were already installed, or (B) Revert the firmware update to the prior version.

If your recommendation is to try a different cartridge supplier, then I might as well try a different printer manufacturer as well.  But I do not wish to do that.

Please escalate this to higher level support.  I need my printer and it is currently not working due to your last firmware update,

HP OfficeJet Pro 8710

Thank you for your time.

Hi!

I am currently using aftermarket cartridges. They were installed and working perfectly for the past 3 months.  When the latest firmware update (released April 5 i believe) was applied, the printer immediately stopped recognizing the cartridges.  HP has done this before to customers. Forcing them to use only HP cartridges.  Please provide me with the link to download and install the 'prior' firmware update so that I can use my printer again.  This is greatly affecting my ability to work from home during the pandemic.

Thank you for your support
