Firmware version: CKP1CN1304AR
Software version: 028.000.1315.000
Printer Driver version: 09.84.00.1173
This printer seems to be affected by dynamic security feature since it only recognizes OEM cartridges and we tried several 3rd party cartridges/chips with no success.
There is an optional firmware downgrade available for several Officejet, Officejet Pro and Officejet ProX printers models on hp website ( https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-officejet-pro-8610-e-all-in-one-printer-series/5367603/model... ); however the printer in reference is not included.
Please provide a solution to remove dynamic security feature on OJP 8600 N911a, so non-hp original ink can be used.
Thank you in advance for your reply.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I read that the OJP 8600 is not affected by the dynamic security issue affecting non-hp ink but my OJP por 8600 all in one N911a is affected. I would like to know if this problem has a solution? Thank you.
Sorry no. There is no problem with this firmware on this printer.

You answered my problem..still knowing that I have the same issue as the others...does not allow me to use non-hp ink cartridges, yet you offer no ideas to fix my problem. My computer will not work without genuine ink cartridges??? I would like a solution or download to fix this program otherwise I give up on HP.

As stated, nothing wrong with the 8600, as far as I know. However your choice of 3rd party cartridges is questionable. Make sure you purchase from a 3rd party that has a 100% money back guarantee and a lifetime warranty on the cartridges. Just search the web, they are there.

Your response questioning my purchase of 3rd party ink cartridges shows the arrogance of HP. You still didn't help to figure out how to use non-hp replacement cartridges. Our family business wanted to use HP printers. Three printers which will not work unless we use the high priced HP ink catridges. We would like the freedom of choice to buy 3 rd party ink cartridge replacements. It doesn't look like you have any helpful suggestions. I'll wait until their is a class action suit that will force HP to issue downloads to fix the problem. For now...the business will use the Epson ET printers with refillable ink tanks and store the HP printers until there is a download to fix the problem.

Hi Karenlorrel, just a comment as an affected user. I can confirm that OfficeJet Pro 8600 can work with compatible cartridges using the latest firmware release by Hp (1545). However consider that not all 3rd party chip manufacturers are the same, there are a few of them in the market and most of compatible cartridges brands outsource the chips from them. Some are more stable than others and resist better to OEM upgrades releases which sometimes deactivate 3rd party consumables use. The most technically qualified manufacturer in the world is Apex Microlectronics (APEX), their chips can be recognized by an "A" or "P" made with small perforations on each of the 4 chip contacts. As a general recomendation NEVER upgrade your printer firmware if you are using compatible cartriges and everything is working fine. Sometimes this upgrades occur automately so make sure you set the printer driver to never ask for upgrades.
I hope this is of some help...
