Lexmark firmware update warning
« on: March 01, 2011, 07:19:22 am »
We have just had a notification from one of our suppliers regarding a firmware update from Lexmark. If you like many people use refilled or compatible cartridges do not accept any updates from Lexmark, if you do accept this update then you will never be able to use anything but new genuine Lexmark cartridges for the life of the printer, once installed there is no going back. This applies to all Lexmark printers regardless of age.

Note, as Dell printers are made by Lexmark it may also apply to Dell.

We refill/remanufacture Dell inkjet and laser cartridges without any problem, although you can only buy genuine Dell inkjet cartridges direct from Dell.

Be very suspicious of any firmware updates from any printer manufacturer if you want to use non OEM cartridges from our experience of another major manufacturuer begining with 'E' confirms this.
