What is a firmware update ?

A firmware update is a software update proposed by the printer manufacturers. This software update provides security upgrades and new features to the printer.

Often, these updates add, remove or modify code that makes competitors' ink cartridges, and compatible or remanufactured cartridges (although they respect the patents), incompatible with the printers.

The consequences for the end user are compelling as the printer will stop printing if compatible/remanufactured cartridges are used.

At Armor Print Solutions, we are doing everything we can to prevent this from happening with our OWA consumables. We are constantly on the lookout for updates and try to be as responsive as possible should this happen!
