Turn Off HP Firmware Updates

Instuctions to turn off firmware updates on HP printers using HP 953xl / 903xl ink cartridges

HP released a wireless firmware update that may affect your ability to use compatible HP 953XL / 903XL ink cartridges. If your printer updates to this latest firmware version it will prompt a cartridge problem message on your printer, stopping you from using our compatible cartridges.

Anyone that wants to continue using compatible cartridges may choose to stop further updates. Please note, turning off updates could potentially affect other functionality. Refer to your printer support page for more details.

In the guide below, we show you how to disable the automatic fimware updates on your printer so you can print without interruption.

Once you have turned off automatic updates you can then go on to downgrade the software.

The message shown below may appear on your printer's display if the firmware has been updated, preventing you from using compatible ink cartridges.

On the printer control panel, press the COG or swipe down to open the tools dashboard, then select the circular setup icon.

Scroll through the display and select 'Printer Maintenance'

Scroll up on the display and select 'Update the Printer'

Press 'Printer Update Options' on the screen

Select 'Do Not Check'

Select 'No' to turn off Printer updates
