We were not informed about the intentions of the firmware update before it’s release. We assume that it is an error that the firmware update causes installed cartridges from being properly recognized by the printer.

We recommend using only genuine Ghost White Toner or genuine HP Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black Toner Cartdriges for best print and transfer results.
