Static Control advises against all firmware updates on printers due to the risk of locking out aftermarket cartridges. A recent firmware update impacts some of the most recent HP printers. Once installed, the printer will display an error message that says, “Indicated cartridges blocked for containing non-HP chip. Event code: 10.00.46.”
 
The firmware impacts these HP printers:
  • LaserJet Pro M404DN, M404DW, M404N
  • LaserJet Pro MFP M428DW, M428FDN, M428FDW
  • LaserJet Enterprise M406DN
  • LaserJet Enterprise MFP M430F
 
What can you do?
To protect your business, it is important to advise against any firmware updates. This can be difficult now that some printers automatically update firmware without prompting the end user first.
 
In this video, we show you how to disable the automatic firmware update function in HP Color LaserJet Pro M404, M428, M454, M479 and related printers.
