I am buying the Deskjet 3520, but I am reading all across the net that these HP printers are programmed to either NOT accept non-HP ink, or falsely state the non-HP cartridges are either half full or empty when they are not. Is this true, and if so, is there a workaround?
Click here to search HP Sure Supply by printer type for compatible ink cartridges.
As far as I know, there are non-HP ink cartridges that work in HP printers. The HP printers are programmed the way they need to be programmed to print. If you are using non-HP ink and it has failed, click here for help found on the Cheapinksandtonerscancostyouplenty thread.
A good place to start troubleshooting a cartridge issue is to clean the cartridge and carriage contacts.
Using non-HP ink is not recommended or supported.

This printer is a nightmare if you move to another country. We moved back to New Zealand from the UK last year. Recently our printer ink ran out. So I looked up on the website for compatible ink HP ink as 364 was not available in NZ. I had the compatible ink sent from Australia but they are not compatible.
