A firmware update is the software related to your printer’s functionality. It seems to optimize your printer, but in fact, it blocks compatible cartridge chips.
Take Samsung for example, the firmware can be updated through traditional method, network, and embedded programs:
Traditional Firmware Update Method
Normally, newly produced printers will be equipped with the latest firmware, which is the traditional firmware update method. To deal with this situation, compatible consumable manufacturers can produce the cartridge chip that matches the new printer and firmware.
Update Through Network
After updating firmware through network, your compatible cartridge chip that is in use may not continue printing jobs as your printer cannot recognize the chip.
Embedded Update Programs
Embedded in Printer Chips
As some people will disconnect their Internet to prevent firmware updates, OEMs will embed update programs in their printers. When customers restart their printers, the program will be automatically triggered, which will block compatible chips.
Embedded in Cartridge Chips
If the above three methods cannot limit the usage of compatible cartridge chips, OEMs will adopt a more hidden way, namely embedding update programs in original cartridge chips. While end-users install original cartridges, the printer firmware will be updated to the latest version.
Apart from firmware updates, OEMs will also set regions for their printers, which means a printer from one region will only work with cartridges and chips from that same region.
